Christiane is writing some terrific dispatches from her India trip (in German) – if you read German, definitely check them out!
She has also tagged me with a meme.
Warum bloggst Du?/Why do you blog?
Probably first and foremost as a venting mechanism – it’s hard to find people who are willing to sit around and listen to me bitch and moan about accessibility in person. Secondly to educate and entertain. Like Christiane, I’ve found that most able-bodied people really don’t have a concept of the sorts of things we have to be concerned about on a day to day basis, and I hope this blog shares some of that information in some small way.
Seit wann bloggst Du?/How long have you been blogging?
My first entry is from March, 2001. There was a previous blog, lost to history.
I am reliably informed, however, that photos do not do me justice.
Warum lesen Deine Leser Dein Blog?/Why do your readers read your blog?
Some out of family loyalty (thank you!). Others are long time internet associates from way back in Usenet days. I assume that a fair number are interested in disability rights and accessibility issues.
Welche war die letzte Suchanfrage, über die jemand auf Deine Seite kam?/What was the last search phrase someone used to get to your site?
“multiple sclerosis and total recovery” – sadly, no total recovery here. Not a single phrase about sex, unless you count “well dressed women in heels”.
Welcher Deiner Blogeinträge bekam zu Unrecht zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit?/Which of your entries unjustly got too little attention?
I’m always surprised when any entry gets any attention!
Welches Blog hast du zuletzt gelesen?/What blog did you read most recently?
Behindertenparkplatz. I actually do read other blogs. Really.
Wie viele Feeds hast du gerade im Moment abonniert?/What feeds are you currently subscribed to?
None at the moment, I’m between feed readers.
An welche vier Blogs wirfst du das Stöckchen weiter und warum?/What four blogs are you tagging with this meme and why?
Wheelchair Dancer, Gimpy Mumpy, Mark and Becky (where’s your new blog, Becky?), because they are all interesting people I would like to know more about.
