Ready to make some special needs connections?
Part of the joy, part of the challenge of the internet is that you can find blogs out there that talk about just about anything–from special needs to special taxes. The problem is finding the blogs that talk about things you care about, things you know about, things you can empathize with.
You might have the answer to someone else’s problem or you might just be the one to offer them an encouraging comment at the end of a very long day. The best way I know to do this, so that we can support each other, is to be a part of a blog hop.
I’ve seen blog hops around, but kept becoming frustrated because there was no Special Needs one available. This is my answer to that small problem.
Why A Blog Hop?
It’s a great way to meet new folks online who share some awesomeness, and special needs support, along the way. Also, by consistently looking at other sites you can get ideas for posts of your own, partnerships you can forge with others, or be inspired by someone else’s creativity.
To effectively grow your blog, you need to be active within the community you are a part of. What better way to stay active in the special needs community than by consistently supporting your fellow bloggers?
Why Special Needs?
While there might be some excellent Blog Hops or lists for specific diagnoses (and please share the ones you know of), I thought it was about time we had a blog hop that gives us the chance to branch out beyond our own little section of the internet. Here, you’ll run into bloggers who write about the same things you do, and sometimes about things which are completely different. We all face our own joys and struggles as we walk this path in life–why not share with others who ‘get it’ a bit along the way?
What do you have to do?
Make a commitment to visit as many of these wonderful blogs and leave a comment–that’s all you have to do!
Each Weekend, sign-ups will end as of 8 a.m. Saturday morning, and the blog-hopping will officially run until Sunday at Midnight (except for the first two weeks, when sign ups will be ongoing).
Right Click on the Logo to the left (or design one and share it with the rest of us!) and place it somewhere in your homepage sidebar!
Quick Rules and Admonitions
Please remember that we’re all just folks trying to write a little bit about things which we are passionate about. We don’t have to share the same point of view on every topic. We don’t need to make our own points by being disrespectful of someone else’s Blog.
Anyone who is listed here should be trying to Hop along to other blogs every weekend. Miss a weekend? That’s okay – try to squeeze in a few minutes sometime during the week. Can’t consistently visit other blogs at all? We’ll miss you but understand that sometimes, life gets in the way. Come back and re-join the Hop when you are able to participate as well.
Did I miss something? Let me know and I’ll consider adding it.
