Special Needs Blogger Weekend Link-up: Just what you've been waiting for

It's the Special Needs Blogger Weekend Link-Up! Isn't that special? (Bonus points if you remember the Saturday Night Live character known for saying that.)

The idea

Link to a favorite post of the week—yours or someone else's. Note: A few people have had trouble posting using Internet Explorer. Try a different browser!

What to do

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post. Where it says "Your name" put the name of the blog followed by the title of the post (or just the name of the post, if there's no room—you get 80 characters).

Like this: Love That Max: My Birthday Party Is Finally Here! Joy Oh Joy

Where it says "Your URL" put the direct link to the post.

Click "Enter." Leave a comment if you want to say more. Go check out some great posts.

Happy linking!


  1. Three years ago, today, we started Kyle on the Ketogenic Diet to help control his epilepsy (he has atonic seizures). My blog post talks about our story with the diet and how thankful we are for it!

  2. Happy birthday, Max! xx We're at number 5. This post was written for the people in our town, who are just hearing about Dexter. It covers his premature birth, brain damage, vision impairment, severe cerebral palsy and cancer. Lots of links and videos. You might like it, too. Thanks, Ellen.

  3. I linked up two posts this week (no. 6 and 7) because apart from my "favourite" post of the week I feel that the video in my second post is absolutely worth watching!

  4. I linked up to my Thanksgiving post. I have two posts I want to share but will save one for next week. There is nothing spectacular about this post, I suppose, but the video at the end is hilarious, so that's why the post is being linked to. Thanks for doing this! :)

  5. How many lightbulbs does it take DWP to screw over a special needs family? My posts are usually more "newsy" but this is getting to be such a huge issue out here, and many of us are already dealing with financial challenges. Can't wait to read the others! - Rosie

  6. Thanks again! I linked my post from yesterday, talking about how and (sometimes) why Samantha can be so freaking, frustratingly *defiant.*

  7. Thanks again - I've added another post about how aspergers and secondary school are not mixing too well...

  8. A post on where the money goes and how hard those decisions are…thanks for offering the opportunity to share!

  9. Hi everyone - organised for christmas yet? I've linked up 'bounce back ability' at number 28 - guaranteed to make you smile! A story that may well renew your belief in good people and the fact that sometimes, just sometimes, big companies do think about the little guy. Thanks for hosting Ellen, as always, and have a great weekend everyone!

  10. It's so very cold today. Seems like the perfect excuse to don my pajamas, pour myself a cup of joe, and enjoy a bunch of beautiful blog posts!!!!

    Thank-you again, Ellen!!!!
    You are a gracious host!
    (Double thanks for letting me wear my PJ's!! tee hee!)

  11. Today was a ranting day! Thanks Ellen for providing a place to let it out! -laurie

  12. "Disability Thinking: 3 Year Old Me" ... about a jury-rigged contraption my parents and a bike shop created to increase my mobility, lo these many years ago, when both my legs were in casts. Bonus '70s fashion included!

  13. Ellen,
    Here is a very awesome video link:
    It is about a German company making mannequins based on actual people with physical disabilities and then displaying them in store windows.
    Hope Max has a good Cars 2 Birthday party!

  14. Thank you for the invite to link.

  15. I just linked another post, Sorry, but I could not wait another week to do so. :) It dawned on me late last night that yesterday was the one year anniversary of our son's diagnosis with Sensory Processing Disorder, so I blogged about it this morning and just shared the link. Hope you don't mind too much!


Thanks for sharing!
