Happy new year all!

I was planning on posting something about new year's resolutions, and I also still have something to post to the [community profile] yuletide com, but I'm kinda floored for posting properly at the moment cos I've just heard that FWD/Feminists With Disabilities ( is to stop posting. Which, gah, leaves me feeling really quite adrift it the cold hard world of the internet and disability politics. FWD has gotten me through some pretty rough times, has opened my eyes on disability and intersectionality issues of all kind, including some for which I have lived experience, and has generally been one of my absolute all time favourite blogs over about the past year.

For me, 2010 was a year of increased participation in both Disability activism and Disability arts, and I suspect my abiding memories of the year will include sitting in hotel rooms up and down the country reading FWD from the screen of my mobile phone.

I'm... actually quite heartbroken. Odd. Although I only lurked over there and rarely participated, FWD meant a heck of a lot to me.

I am starting BSL classes next week. I am still intending to post something about disability to [community profile] yuletide about Disability. I actually still haven't written up the accesibility stuff I've been meaning to for Odyssey.

FWD will be remaining maintained as an archive. If you're interested in that sort of thing, or if you just want to humour me, go check it out. And if you already know what I'm talking about, toast with me as we make our way Forward to a more accessable future. *nodnod*
