Why hello there, Blogger.

It has been a long time, hasn't it?  I've been busy cheating on Blogger with Tumblr, but never fear, I will always come back to Blogger when I have something of actual length to say.  Which, sad to say, hasn't been lately.  Such is the life of a college student.

ANYWAY.  I'm hosting the October Disability Blog Carnival!  Pieces of the June one are still languishing in my drafts folder, and I intend to actually put it up.....sometime.  But onto October!  My theme for the October DBC is sweet is the melody.  How does music help you get through the tough times related to disability?  What songs empower you?  What songs remind you of the disability experience?  As always, I welcome submissions off-theme as well.  Please have submissions to me by October 25th and I will try my hardest to have them up by the first of November!!  You can comment on this post with your link or email me at caraliebowitz@gmail.com.  You can even send them to me through Tumblr if you like, I don't care.  Happy blogging, everyone!

Better late than never--I posted a link to this fine call (interesting theme!) at Disability Studies, Temple U., right now.

Hi, I'm a wee late with my submission that disability and ability coexist, for me, and I think for many: Write a Happy Song
