Welcome to the Summer Disability Blog Hop on With a Little Moxie – this is a hop for bloggers who are advocates, people with disabilities and/or have a connection with disability through blogging. That includes Down syndrome bloggers, Deaf bloggers, blind bloggers, bloggers without a disability but who have a loved one with a disability. Bloggers with all and every type of physical/mental disability. It also includes bloggers who don't blog on disability/special needs but would like to write or include a post that has a disability connection.
If I missed you in this description, holla but the point I hope has been made: the spectrum of disability is huge and this hop is for everyone.
The point of the hop is to connect and share. Meet new people. Create community.
The optional prompt for this week is:
That is: SAY CHEESE! Let's have some photos – just post some fun pictures that have a connection with disability – your child with Down syndrome/special needs, yourself and your bad-ass chair, your hearing/seeing dog. What-have-you, but let's have us some FUN.
Since the spectrum for disability (and our representation within) is so broad, this prompt is open to absolutely any way you'd like to interpret it – or not. You don't have to use it.
And the blank photo in case you'd like to riff it is here:
(one way to create a talk bubble – just open the photo in a new window, right-click save; upload to picmonkey and open the "comic bubble" piece – add what you want, save and re-upload. Easy peas, right?)
HOP will be live on Wednesday, links open for a week.
Ready, set – roll!
