This is my first post on my very first blog. The genesis of this blog is a number of discussions with other board members on the Office for the Disabled advisory council about what we want to do as members of the advisory council. Basically, we are an advisory council to a department that is connected to the Office of Aging and our department is the one with a very small budget. There is a lot more money for seniors than for the disabled population.
As we talked about what we wanted to do, we realized that the lack of funding limited what could be done. The idea of an interactive website kept coming up and the idea of a blog was mentioned. We wanted a method to provide timely information about activities and events that our disabled population might want to participate.
Right now, no one knows about this site and I am really just writing my thoughts about an idea that has been discussed for a long time. If you happen to see this site, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org until I figure out how to navigate my blog. I am not sure how the comment section works yet, but try to leave a comment. Suggestions and ideas: please feel free to be as open and honest as you can be so I can learn from this process and improve this site. Who will be my first visitor and what do they have to say?
