Autistic Angel Adventures

Button Love

Part of the reason I started this blog was to talk about my adventures in life with my two sons who are autistic.  I hope by sharing my ups, downs, and everything in between I can help spread awareness and understanding, perhaps even encourage others to talk bout their experiences.  The other reason was to share my creative and artistic side on the web.  This has been a long time wish of mine; I have such a love for art!  I always wanted to venture into a career in art, but years ago I chose to pursue my love of Nursing.  So now’s my chance to combine both goals into one through this blog.
I have only been blogging for a little over a month now, but I have followed many blogs for quite some time.  One of my favorite things I enjoy looking at is all the other bloggers creativity and inspiration that they share.  But there is one difference I’ve come to notice between the autism blogs and the DIY/Craft/Art blogs.  Most bloggers create blog buttons to share amongst themselves.  Each one is created to be unique to their particular blog.  These buttons, as I understand it, are shared to connect with others who have similar interests.  But I have noticed that of the many autism blogs I follow, very few have blog buttons.  This got my butterfly wings fluttering with some ideas.  I would like to use a blog button idea to connect with autism bloggers as the other bloggers do.  I would really like to get some feedback from others on this idea if possible.   I understand some of you run your blog as more of a personal journal or venting space. I would like to perhaps make a page in my blog where I could display buttons from other autism bloggers.  I would hope this would not only attract more readers for my blog as well as yours, but increase the autism awareness in blog land.  Of course this is still a project in the beginning stages, but its progress depends on the participation of others.  Please let me know if anyone is interested!  You can contact me through Email or Facebook, or even drop me a comment below.

For those of you who follow my Autistic Angel Adventures, I have created a button just for you to share (copy and paste code are located in the sidebar) Please feel free to copy and paste it on your page to share with your readers; if any of you have a button as well, please let me know so I can grab it to share also.  Help me spread the love for all of us who have autistic angels in our lives!  Thank you for helping me on this adventure to connect with others.  I do this not just for myself, but for my boys in hopes to make a brighter future ahead for them!  Keep spreading the awareness!  Thanks again

Yours Truly,
