When the Autism Hub went down, I had no idea what happened. I still have no idea what happened. I'm kinda clueless about stuff like politics and gossip and drama and stuff like that. I always have been. When stuff starts hitting the fan, I'm the clueless one going, "Huh? What fan? And why am I all damp?" Yes, I often wonder how much I might have contributed to the problem; I often never find out because I never find out what the problem was. How much of being clueless made it worse? Am I really that much in La-La Land? And I have this problem all the time in real life situations, when I should be able to read the social cues swirling about me, and just don't. Online? Gah!
So apparently the Hub went down, and I didn't know about it for a few days. And now it is back up, and I found out because someone on Facebook mentioned they weren't on it anymore. In fact, a couple of folks mentioned it- folks I consider very central voices to the parent discussion side of things. I wasn't surprised to find my own blog gone, after all, I'm just a little blog, and I did kinda crash the party instead of being invited. In fact, the vast majority of the comfy-couch section seems to have been axed.
But salvation is here! Kim Wombles has put together a new lovely directory of autism blogs, and it looks fabulous: The Autism Blogs Directory. Lots and lots of blogs, so you can check out plenty of online voices saying lots of thought-provoking things about topics I never even knew might be an issue! Do I agree with everybody? Heck, no! And I think that's a good thing!
So come check it out, find some new blogs to read, grab some hot beverage of your choice, and join us on the comfy couches!
