Hosting the Disability Carnival

This is a first for me - hosting the carnival of bloggers. Oh I have joined in once or twice, but never played host.

This carnival is all about first.

I wanted to make this easy to join in. We are such a diverse group. What we all have in common is blogging so I would love everyone to connect in this Disability Carnival with their first blog post. (ordinal number
1: coming before all others in time or order; earliest; 1st: the first post on your site)

If you don't find this appealing then please pick a first to write about from the definitions below:

  • 'first things first'
    important matters should be dealt with before other things: I suggest we get our priorities right—first things first
  • 'from the (very) first'
    from the beginning: she realized it from the first
  • 'at first - at the beginning'
    in the initial stage or stages: at first Hugo tried to be calm
  • 'first and last' everything considered; above all else; altogether: First and last, it is important to know oneself
  • Synonyms of first: earliest, foremost, inaugural, initial, leadoff, maiden, original, pioneer, premier, virgin

So if this is your inaugural attempt to join in the Disability Carnival what do you do?

Just post here, in comments, the link to your first post ever or the post you have written about first. In your post please link back to here. Let everyone know you are joining in. Thanks. The closing date will be March 10.

Oh and not really a first, except my first attempt to do a solo paper and scissors zine, but I would LOVE IT if you included my callout for submissions for my zine on (dis)Abilities and Activism!
