Recap Review, April 18 Edition

It’s been a heartening week full of awareness here at Do You Digg It.  It started with an inspiring collection of stories from a young girl with autism, and grew to a theme of its own from there.

Week In Review, April 18, 2009

  • Actually the week started with Easter well-wishes, including an update on Sean Rasmussen’s internet marketing seminars and travels.  Tough to keep up with that one!  Enjoy our belated Easter message, or as the case may be for some of you, consider it timely if you celebrate this week!
  • The official blog review kick off for the week found us at Amy’s Short Stories blog.  Amy is that inspiring, insightful young girl I mentioned who is teaching all of us through her blogging, writing, and outlook on life.  Be sure to stop in and meet this young talent.
  • Amy’s blog led us to several others of similar interest, focusing on increasing the awareness of autism and spectrum disorders, and in supporting and educating others.  The next blog, Beautiful Spectrum, is one of these blogs, a true celebration of the diversity of life.
  • Faces of Autism is an equally informative and compelling blog.  It is just as it sounds, a photoblog celebrating the diversity of life and increasing understanding through photos and artwork.
  • The next site is dedicated to special needs, including a large segment of autism-related works, but has a bit broader topic, too.  5 Minutes for Special Needs is a blog supported by an expert and experienced team of writers dealing with special needs in many forms, and offering both education and support.
  • Our final blog review for the week was a visit back to a blogging friend we reviewed last year, the inspiring Glenda Watson Hyatt.  Glenda is an amazing woman doing amazing things in the face of insurmountable odds given her diagnosis of severe Cerebral Palsy.  It’s hard to maintain a poor mood when Glenda is around!

That rounds out our week here at Do You Digg It.  In case you missed it, here is last week’s Recap Review of all the previous week’s works and reviews.

Beautiful Spectrum

It seems we’ve just missed World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, however, as the parents of these wonderful children will tell you, every day is a day for raising the consciousness and understanding of this disorder and for getting to know the people who live with it. Inspired by Amy’s Short Stories and some wonderful blog links from that blog, we come now to Beautiful Spectrum.

Beautiful Spectrum – Why You Should Go

Beautiful Spectrum is Halo‘s journal of life with “Twinkle”, her non-verbal autistic daughter. The blog is an insight into the world of autism wherein Halo shares the struggles and the triumphs of life with an autistic child. It is a wonderful resource for outsiders to learn more about autism and the capabilities and special needs of these children and their families.

Summing Up Beautiful Spectrum

Autism is a very difficult disorder for the lay person to understand. And so, these blogs from the children, parents, and families who are courageous enough to share their experiences with the rest of us are a true gift of awareness, insight, and understanding. Come along with Halo and her daughter as they journey throughout this Beautiful Spectrum and add a new level of understanding to your knowledge of autism and related disorders.

Go here to check out Beautiful Spectrum.

Amy’s Short Stories

Amy’s Short Stories is a blog where Amy, a young girl from the United Kingdom, keeps a collection of her own short stories to share for the enjoyment of others.

Amy’s Short Stories – Why You Should Go

A truly impressive young girl, Amy’s stories are full of feeling and creativity, often reflecting her dreams and life on her UK farm. They are entertaining and witty, and inspiring for her sheer dedication and courage in telling them.

Amy’s blog was created with the help of her mother because, in her words,

“My mum is really proud of me and likes to read my stories so she made a blog for me so that other people could read them too. I love other people reading my blog, it makes me very happy.”

This blog, though, stands as much more than the inspired and inspiring writings of a young girl. It also stands as an example of the strength and capabilities of a young girl with autism; yes, Amy is autistic, and her blog also makes a strong statement about autism awareness and understanding.

Summing Up Amy’s Short Stories

Everything about Amy’s Short Stories is inviting; the stories are entertaining, enjoyable reads that speak volumes for the author, who herself is a delightful young lady, a true inspiration to us all. A visit to this blog is sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face.
