Pride Day Coming
Rolling Around in My Head is the proud host of the Disability Blog Carnival for the month of June. Here's how it works: each month a blogger hosts the carnival by working with the organizers in choosing a topic and picking a day. I asked for June because it is 'Pride Month' for the LGBT community and there will be Pride marches all over the world. I thought that the theme of 'Pride' was a good one.
Here's what I'd like. Send me a link to the blog you've written about disability that is the one that you are the most proud of ... not the one that got the most comments or most reactions - the one where you felt you best expressed something about the disability experience. For me the blogs most commented on surprise me. I'll write something I think has something important to say. Like the other day I wrote the line, 'Even the smallest baby with Down Syndrome is born with a backbone.' I thought this line powerfully said something important. It went entirely without notice.
Most writers will tell you that, 'that's how it is' when it comes to writing. People like what they like and read what they read, independently of what you like. So, this is the time to pull out that blog that you truly loved. The one you go back and read every now and again.
Send me the link and I'll put it up on Carnival day. I'd like all entries in by the 15th of June and Pride day will be the last Sunday of June.
Send the notice of this Carnival to other disability bloggers and get them to participate.
I'd love to have a day full of pride here at Rolling Around!
