rightuphereiswhereistorethejuice asked: So I've been following your blog for a little bit but I just now caught the Eric Hutchinson reference in your blog header! Ten points to Gryffindor!
Ohmygosh we’re new best friends now. You’re the only person who noticed which is cool since it’s kind of obscure, but still…yay you made me so happy :) PS. I had to respond publicly to declare my joy to the tumblr-verse.

I was writing an article last night and got a kick out of this sentence when I realized it’s unintentionally punny: “Too often, people use the term ‘wheelchair-bound’ to refer to wheelchair users – a term that I personally can’t stand.”

I want to diversify what’s on my dash. Recommend me some cool disability blogs? Anything that isn’t a spoonie-type chronic illness blog. (I just already have plenty and know where to find more if i want more. Looking to mix things up.)
I do blog and re blog a lot on disability. I am deaf and have attention deficit disorder, but I tend to be interested in a lot of cross disability stuff. Since I do a lot of re-blogging, you can discover more disability Tumblr blogs via mine.
You can find more deaf bloggers via http://deafread.com
The Disability Studies blog at Temple U has an extensive blog roll of many different bloggers with disabilities, check the left hand side: http://disstud.blogspot.com/
Every year, there is a major event on May 1st called Blogging Against Disablism Day in which usually more than 100 bloggers (mostly people with disabilities) blog about ableism/disablism. Browsing through some of the entries that have been submitted to this over the years can help lead you to many more disability bloggers, though not all are on Tumblr. Check the archives for 2013, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Speaking of which, the May 1st date for the 2014 BADD event should be coming soon! Watch Diary of a Goldfish blog for details that I’m sure will be coming soon.
