It seemed that the first/last time I posted a 'What's Your Fucking Medical Problem?', everyone had something to say. It was wonderful. However, every week we have a guest writer posting about a topic near and dear to their heart, and it is rare that we top 20 comments.
KosAbility is a community diary series posted at 5 PM ET every Sunday by volunteer diarists. This is a gathering place for people who are living with disabilities, who love someone with a disability, or who want to know more about the issues surrounding this topic. There are two parts to each diary. First, a volunteer diarist will offer their specific knowledge and insight about a topic they know intimately. Then, readers are invited to comment on what they've read and/or ask general questions about disabilities, share something they've learned, tell bad jokes, post photos, or rage about the unfairness of their situation. Our only rule is to be kind; trolls will be spayed or neutered.So please, tell us about yourself if you feel so inclined, and tell us what you think about what to do to improve this group and build participation. In exchange, I won't tell you really disgusting EMS war stories. Deal?
I've missed a couple of weeks too, due to unanticipated travel or internet outages. For this I apologize. And I say all of that in order to say this: Obviously, WYFMP?, and also, what about KosAbility is, or is not, working for us?
I know, as the moderator, that I should be as all knowing and prescient as Kelley was, but sadly, I am not. I will take into consideration any and all suggestions as to how to improve our Sunday get-together!
postmodernista is the moderator of KosAbility’s diaries and maintains the schedule. If you’d like to sign up for an open Sunday, post a comment or send her a private kosmail.With regard to the upcoming schedule, the cupboard is bare. Y'all please let me know if you're interested in next Sunday or beyond, please.
The content of the KosAbility diaries is important to many folk who depend on the exchange of information and ideas about their struggles with real life-changing conditions. The moderators of these diaries will not tolerate rude, disruptive, off topic, and/or threadjacking behavior. If in doubt, read our mission statement in the diary.
