As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been blogging and tweeting a lot about the spartacus report and wrb (Welfare Reform Bill). I’d like to come at the whole disability awareness and benefit change thing from a different angle though, and I’d like to hold a blog carnival.
I want to host a carnival of differences. I’d like your posts and stories about disability, mental health, life with (or indeed without) benefits. Your personal stories about your problems, triumphs, highs and lows to share with my readers.
I’d very much like if we could make this a shared carnival – by which I mean that I’d like to send out the formatted links for you all to add to the end of your posts, so that ppl can hop through it all from wherever they find it, giving us all much more chance to publicise it. The only caveat I’d give is that this is a family friendly blog, so I don’t swear on it, and if your post contains strong language I’d like to be able to mention that in the link.
Is this something that anyone would be up for joining in with? I’d like to publish Thurs 16th so I’d need posts by next Tues 14th.
Please, this is our chance to win hearts and minds, and show what effect the wrb is likely to have on individuals, families and children. I have readers who don’t know what Disability Living allowance is, or why it matters, and I’d like to shine a light on that, but from a personal point of view. If you’re up for the challenge, please take a moment and drop me a line with a post. You can contact me through the comment form below or via my contact form. I’m also on twitter (often!) as liveotherwise, and can accept posts via tweets.
