Brilliante Web Award - My first blog award

It was a nice surprise when
MT of
The Bon Bon Gazette tagged Autism Family Adventures the Brilliante Weblog Award. Thank you for the recognition. I have been writing online for many years, but just started this blog as a way to communicate with readers since Autism Spectrum Disorders @ does not support comments. I was feeling left out of the blog world since I was visiting, reading and commenting on autism related blogs.

The rules for this award are as follows:

1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.
2. Link to the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs you’ve nominated.

Here are the lucky seven I have chosen:

1. Coping with Disability - Rudy Sims is known as Rudy 10 on Twitter. He was among the first I met at the site. He has shared interesting articles he reads online and writes from firsthand experience as someone with Cerebral Palsy. He is a master at reading and blogging, plus he resides in my homestate of New Jersey.

2. A Deaf Mom Shares Her World - I have known Karen as Barefooter on Epinions for eight years now. We both started writing reviews in January of 2000. While Karen has not been as active in the past year like I have, we have kept in touch over the years through email communication. I joined Disaboom after reading a blog of Karen's on that site. Karen leads a busy life and has a fun personality. I even learned after all this time why she used the pen name barefooter.

3. Fun Cool Collectibles - Christina runs the company that is known as All Things Character Unique. She is busy getting her site ready for the upcoming holiday season. Great ideas for presents for kids. She is also a whiz on Squidoo with a lens on Autism. I hope to emulate her on that site and learn from her expertise.

4. Laura Loves Art - Laura is always on the move and I like her style. It just so happens we were both born in April of 1960. We are also part of the Adoption Triad in different roles. You have to read about the audition Laura took her cat Oliver to for the Meow Mix Think Like A Cat Game Show, it is a fun excursion. I enjoy following her on Twitter.

5. Do It Myself Blog - Glenda has Cerebral Palsy and is known as the left thumb blogger. She has a book entitled, I'll Do It Myself. Here is the trailer. I plan on getting her book soon. She is very outgoing on Twitter. Make sure to read her Accessibility 100 series, which are free and inexpensive tips for improving accessibility for people with disabilities.

6. Floortime Repository - Alexis and her husband created this ning group. In fact thanks to Alexis I am learning my way around the Ning groups I have since joined. Besides her blog at the site there are her home made videos showing therapy with her son. Very dedicated parents that are in the process of creating another website known as Coolest-Kids-Games. This will be another site to check back for holiday gifts.

7. April Tara - April Tara and I have a few things in common. We are both single mothers working at home, homeschooling and we are members that help out other families on the website Wish Upon A Hero. April Tara has launched a website that is seeking bloggers, But What About The Kids. This is a unique site since it targets custody, co-parenting and court issues. I should share my past experience with supervised visitation.

I enjoy reading these blogs and award this recognition to each of them.

Thank you, Bonnie! You've got a great group of people listed!

I'd love to have you share your experiences on But What About the Kids!

That website got put on hold while I was starting my business but now that I'm getting settled into a routine, I'm hoping to get it more active.

Let me know if you want to contribute and I can add you as an author there.

And thank you for the award and the kind words.

What a great list! Do you know how I can gain access to the Floortime site? I tried but it required a user name and password. We are starting Floortime this Friday and I have lots to learn!
