Ouch weblog: individual blog entry
25 Jun 07, 8:28 AM - Say hello to Ouch's guest bloggers
Things are going to be rather different here on Ouch's blog for the next few weeks.
Over the last two to three years, we've noticed that the world of disability blogging has really taken off. When we launched Ouch's own weblog at the end of 2002, there weren't many of you out there - now there's a huge number! On Ouch, we want to reflect as much of what's going on in the disability community as possible - including in the blogosphere - so we've invited six disabled bloggers whose words we've loved reading to guest here on our blog for a few weeks.
So, I can hear you asking, what will they be writing about?
Well, everything they normally write about - their lives, their thoughts, things they've seen on the web and in the news, and maybe even other stuff they have spotted on Ouch. However, this will definitely bring more of a personal tone than you're perhaps used to reading from Crippled Monkey and the rest of the Ouch team at BBC Towers in sunny west London - though we'll still be adding the occasional post if we spot something you simply have to see.
We're really, really excited about this little experiement. We hope that you all enjoy the next few weeks, and support our six guest bloggers with loads and loads (and loads) of comments. Don't be shy - if you've never commented here before, why not join in?
In their first posts, our team of six are going to be introducing themselves, but if you want to find out a little more about them instantly, you can check out their profiles.
And with that, it's over to our guests ...
