Back when I started blogging, which was maybe two years ago, there was a blog called Always Chaos, written by the amazing Rebecca. I loved 3 things about this blog: Rebecca’s complete honesty, her beautiful photographs, and her blogroll. For a long time, Rebecca was the “keeper of the DS blogroll” (well not really, I just made up that title and gave it to her now.) She kept us all connected, and was usually the first to comment on a new blogger’s initial posts. And I know lots of people noticed, and appreciated her, and even thanked her for it, but it never hurts to say thank you. I’ll say it again…thank you!
So when she closed down her blog, she’d send me links when she found them. Places where there were interesting stories about DS, or links to new bloggers just beginning their journeys. I always posted the links here, and added the new bloggers to my blogroll.
But, with one thing or another, her emails to me about blogging matters grew less and less frequent, and my updates to my blogroll came less and less often. Which isn’t a bad thing: there are now lots of places on the web where moms and dads and grandparents are talking about life with Down syndrome. And keeping up with it all is a challenge–of course, a challenge in a good way.
And I’m here to ask for your help: if you’re a new blogger who’d like to be included, or if you know someone who would like to be on the list, let me know? I’ll update my blogroll at the end of the week, because really? I love looking over to the right, and seeing it. It’s why I keep the blogroll going, always on the main page. There are so many of us, so very many, living our lives, loving our kids. For me, it’s powerful. And proof–wherever you are, you’re not alone.
