For those that don't know, a "blog hop" is an event where bloggers submit their links to an ever expanding list that one blogger hosts on their site (ie: pays for the script). It's a great opportunity for bloggers to connect with one another, share experience and hopefully increase readership. It's kinda like a blogging cocktail party. For the readers, it's a great way to find all sorts of interesting things to read and pass on. Overall, everybody wins.
In it's previous incarnations, the T-21 Blog Hop was held on the 21st of every month for three days (3x21-- Get it?). That will continue. The restrictive themes of years past will not be coming back, however now and again I will throw one out there just for fun. The script will become "live" and posts can be added at 12:00 am EST on the 21st and will close at 12:00 am EST on the 24th.
Although the name is reflective of Down syndrome, this hop is open to all blogs in the disability and special needs communities. Self-advocates, allies, parent advocates, all are welcome. Posts can be old or new, as long as they meet the requirements set out at the time. In the absence of a theme or if unable to participate in the theme, posts should be about advocacy or activism.
You can only add a post once to the linky, but you are welcome to add more than one post if you choose.
Share your posts, read the others and give some comment love. After the hop is over, the scripting will remain active although new posts cannot be added. Each month will be archived on this page.
If you wish to make this a true hop and display the script on your page, follow this link for instructions.
This way everyone can easily "hop" from blog to blog and we can all share in the exposure.
If you do not wish to attach the hop script to your post, that will be fine. However a backlink to Down Wit Dat is required to participate.
Join us on the 21st of every month for three days of advocacy excellence.
