Newsletter 12th May

Greetings to you all! The newsletter is back this week! I’m very sorry I ended up missing a week, but my dissertation for university was due in on Thursday so it took priority over everything else. So there is a whole list of new blogs that have been added in the last fortnight for you all to check out!!!

Thank you to everyone who left feedback on Feedback Friday! One idea brought forward by Astrid was to create a Facebook or G+ group, which now exists! So if you want to join us in sharing ideas or discussions on learning difficulties, the Facebook group is https://www.facebook.com/groups/644311415652312. There is also a Facebook page if you just want to like and follow https://www.facebook.com/pages/Spectrum-Bloggers-Network/687094054682734. I would encourage all bloggers on the network to join the group, as we have been discussing changes to the blog which will affect you all.

Topic Tuesday is starting this week! If you would like to join in, I will be posting up the topic tomorrow for you to discuss in a blog. You are invited to then leave your link on the post and we will share the different blogs on the page during the week for a bit of extra promotion for you!

Here are all the latest blogs added in the last fortnight! All the latest blog posts follow below.

    • Hi Helen,
      I tried to link to your latest blog post, but the page was down earlier. I saw it had been spotted on your Twitter though. I hope all is ok.

      Also, thank you very much I’m very happy with the progress so far 🙂 Now I’ve finished my dissertation work I can actually find some time to read some of the wonderful blogs that we’re linked to!
