New to the blogroll

With the busy-ness of life, I've gotten behind on updating my blog.

Here are a few additions to my blogroll:

Radar: The Disability Network - This is a new blog from RADAR, the disability rights network of the U.K. They have a vision for, "a just and equal society whose strength is human difference." The blog has a varied mix of noteworthy stories.

Also from the U.K. - Ableize - a "resource directory of disabled aids information products services and advice," run for and by persons with disabilities.

Coping with disability has original articles on living with cerebral palsy, and also regular updates on and links to a variety of health, disability, and social news.

Disabled Soapbox - A wealth of advocacy for disablity rights, including right now the coverage of ADAPT activists advocating for (and being arrested for rallying about) the Community Choice Act in Washington, DC.

Bits and Pieces of Me is a blog written by a mom sharing her experiences as the parent of Lena and Kassie, her twin daughters born very prematurely.

My Disability Blog shares a wealth of information about disability and the social security system. Tim's most recent post, Being Prepared for a Social Security Disability Hearing, discusses the process and how to be best prepared for success.

Hi David,

Nice blog, with interesting stories. Thank you for taking the year off to interview all of those people. Sharing those experiences will hopefully go a long way in educating people about what it is like to live with a disability. Both of my parents are disabled and on Social Security Disability now. http://www.winyourdisabilityclaim.com

I'd like you to consider adding my my project. A blog I named the healing walk.
