We thought it was time for our community of people with disabilities to start telling our own stories. And share our own photos and videos! Without the inspiration-porn, but with all the support, friendship, advice, and camaraderie that we can squeeze into a website.
Two Thirds of the Planet
They say that two thirds of the planet has a connection with disability in some way. Either they are a person with a disability, or they have a family member with a disability, a friend, a lover, or a boss. Whatever it is, there are a lot of us in the world with a connection with disability. This site is for us all.
This site is exclusively run by people with disabilities. Meriah Hudson (formerly Nichols) is the Founder and Lead Editor. Stories and contributions by allies of our disability community are welcome, but the focus of this site is US: it’s about us and it’s by us.
We don’t have a forum (yet), but we will be featuring reader advice questions each week. Ask a question!
We also have a book club that “meets” on Facebook.
The Federation of Disabled Bloggers is also on Facebook and the home for that group is this site.
The award-winning photo project, 365 Days with Disability, is on Instagram – follow the hashtag!
We also hope to have the majority of posts here be voices from the community, bringing in the true diversity of our experiences as people with disabilities. We actively look for reviews, recommendations, opinions and voices.
So! Please submit your guest posts!
