Links and Creating Community

New Links

I just wanted to note that I've been adding new links to fellow crip bloggers. When I started blogging, close to a year ago now, I was reluctant to add links -- I saw so many sites where the lists of links to other blogs went on and on. I wanted to be a little more discerning. I'm somewhat of a snob about the quality of the writing, apart from the opinions expressed.

I haven't abandoned my snobbery, but I have also come to feel that some people are expressing opinions and/or experiences of such universal value that their content is more important than their spelling or grammar. I still think, however, that we need to strive for quality writing -- for the simple reason that good writing is taken more seriously than bad.

Along these lines, I feel that I must note that some of our crip friends in the U.K. are writing beautiful, literate stuff, most notably The Meanderings of a Politically Incorrect Crip.

On this side of the pond, Wheelchair Dancer writes about her world of dance and the larger world of disability with a perspective that is both broad and personal.

Heartening

Rarely does a week go by when I don't encounter some disability-related idiocy. Sometimes I write about it and sometimes I don't. Reading the writings of my fellow travelers reassures me that I'm not the wrong-headed one -- despite efforts to convince me of the contrary.

Thanks.
