By the Disability.gov Team
It’s hard to believe that tomorrow, when the clock strikes midnight, the Disability.gov team will begin a new year of guest blogs. Once again, we have a lot to be thankful for – let’s start with recognizing the excellent posts we featured from Disability.gov’s federal partners; nonprofit organizations such as NICHCY, the Family Caregiver Alliance and the Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law; as well as leaders in the disability community, including the Honorable Tony Coelho, Bob Williams and Dr. Jonathan Young. We are appreciative that more than 75 guest bloggers took the time to share their expertise and personal stories.
This year, Disability.Blog highlighted professional photographs and personal stories from the No Boundaries Photo Project, a Disability.gov initiative that educates employers and others about the skills and talents of individuals with disabilities. We also redesigned Disability.Blog – and although, it’s still a work in progress – we’re proud of its new look and feel. Recently, we moved the blog to WordPress in order to enhance accessibility and usability for all readers.
Most importantly, we’d like to recognize each and every one of you for visiting Disability.Blog, and for your thoughtful comments and questions. We look forward to ushering in another great year of guest blogs in 2012.
