Your Accessibility Conscience

When a Topic Outgrows a Blog…Start a New Blog!

Filed under: Blog Accessibility, Blogging — by Glenda at 8:35 pm on Thursday, October 28, 2010

Early last year I declared my intention to combine two passions – my love for blogging as a way for communicating and sharing and my experience and expertise in the field of web accessibility – to assist bloggers in creating blogs accessible to everyone.

I did write several posts here on blog accessibility. However, I was continually torn between risking driving away my non-bloggy readers and not developing the topic in enough detail to build a following in that area. The topic desperately needed its own space.

The solution?

I did what almost any blogger in a similar situation would do…last month I launched Blog Accessibility where I can completely dive into the topic, explore it in depth and really serve those bloggers who want to make their blogs accessible to people with disabilities.

This week I began a post series entitled “The 7 Sins of Inaccessible Blogs” and I’ve relaunched Blog Accessibility Mastermind. If you’re curious how to make your blog accessible to people with disabilities who have $175 billion in discretionary spending power in the United States alone, please join me over at Blog Accessibility.

For those of you who have no interest in techy, bloggy stuff, have no fear! This blog isn’t going anywhere – I’ll still be blogging here too. If you have any burning questions I’ve yet to address on this blog, ask away…

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a cafe mocha. Thanks kindly.

Hi, Glenda! We met at Blog World–I came over and gushed over you for a few minutes. Anyway, wanted to say hi in this space, so you could connect a blog to a face so to speak.

Can’t wait to go check out your accessibility blog–I wonder how my blog will stack up!

Dear Glenda, hi! I don’t know if you remember, we also met at Blogworld – I came by the door as I was leaving (I think Darren & Chris G’s session) and spoke to you for a few minutes before leaving. I am glad I found you online. You are doing amazing things – please keep it up!
