Access Linky: January 2019



Huge apologies to everyone who has read or contributed to #AccessLinky in the last year.  I don’t know quite how it happened, but the second half of last year whizzed past and my poor little blog seemed to sink under all of the rest of things I had going on, including keeping up with #AccessLinky!

Anyway, new year, new attempt at keeping on top of things!

Starting the linky helped me make connections with a load of great bloggers I’d not come across before, as well as keeping up to date with those I knew, and hope that it helped some others connect or find new ideas too, and so…. I’m bringing #AccessLinky back to the blog!

Not just wheels and ramps, the linky is open to posts on all aspects of access! Including physical, sensory or social access and inclusion in relation to buildings, products, places, events or activities!

It’s easy to link up at the bottom of the post following the InLinkz directions, but do give me a shout if you have any problems!

Linky Round Up:

On the first of the month when the next linky is comes out I will include a round up of posts added to the linky from the previous month.  Depending on the number of posts added I may select a few favourites to focus on, or (if I can’t choose!) I may summarise more of them.

In a slight change, I will also add a wildcard to the round up! A particularly interesting blog I may have come across in that month that hasn’t been linked up! I would love to hear your suggestions on this too if you read anything that stands out to you!

Linky Ettiquette:

This linky is all about information exchange so I want to encourage interaction, but if you find commenting on posts or adding the badge tricky, there’s no pressure to do so. Ideally….

  1. Link up to 2 posts each month (old or new)! It would be lovely if you could add my badge (cut and paste the code in the box under the badge image above and add it into your blog post while in ‘text’ mode of your blog editor) or add a text link back to my site so that people can find the linky and read the other blog entries;
  2. Please comment on this post to introduce yourself if you’re new to the linky, and comment on some of the other linked posts to help share ideas and experiences (use the hashtag #AccessLinky in your comment)!
  3. It would also be amazing if you could share your post and/or any others you find interesting (using the hashtag #AccessLinky) on social media to help spread awareness of the issues around accessibility!  I’ll also try to retweet as many posts as I can!
  4. I welcome input from anyone that is affected by accessible design: disabled people, carers, friends and family as well as designers, developers, managers and legislators (so pretty much everyone!). I also welome blogs from professionals and suppliers, as well as individual bloggers, so long as they keep within the spirit of idea exchange and are not sales posts for products or services.

….and don’t forget to check in again next month (1st of the month) to read the round up, and link up again!
