Well, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun. It doesn’t seem a year ago that we decided that a blog on the SCIL website might liven things up a bit.
Over the last year, we covered a whole range of different issues affecting Disabled People’s lives, from Inclusion to Direct Payments to Relationships. There has been 71 articles posted and 40 people have commented on the blog. Thanks to everyone who has contributed over the last year. We’ve had nearly 7000 hits over the year which is really encouraging.
Developing the blog into a useful resource has taken some time but we now have a host of information with a sprinkling of pictures which helps break up the text. We also now have a Jobs page on the blog so that Disabled People who are looking for Personal Assistants can advertise free of charge. We are also constantly searching for new websites and blogs that you may find useful. Any suggestions are gratefully received.
Linked to the SCIL Blog, we recently launched a SCIL Chat Room and a SCIL Message Board. We are hoping, like the blog, that they will grow in popularity as time goes on. Anyone can use them so give it a go.
To celebrate our first anniversary, we are at last including videos on our blog. This first video is just a bit of fun but we hope to include more informative news clips as time goes on. All you need to do is click on the arrow in the middle of the video screen and it will start playing. Enjoy!
