One Kind Word Deserves Another

In the world of blogging, discussion and traffic let bloggers know that the time we spend sharing and helping others has value.

Bloggers love discussion in their comment section or email. We love referrals from others: links from other blogs and forums, Tweets, Facebook recommendations, LiveBinder listings...anywhere that brings traffic to our site.

Special needs bloggers tend to write because they want to help and support other families, teachers, and therapists paddling the same boat. There is just something extra-special about these good folks!

Knowing that traffic is a great way to encourage a blogger, will you join me in supporting some great bloggers by visiting their sites? These are the Top Ten Blogs that have referred the most visitors to Adapting Creatively. Some days it was the readers coming from these sites that encouraged me to keep posting.

These are some great sites by some talented and creative individuals. Some are parents, some are teachers, some are therapists. All deserve recognition. And you might just stumble across a new favorite!

(A quick little side note...there are a couple of lovely forums that directed lots of traffic and I would like to thank them as well. Many thanks to and! If you are looking to get involved in a forum, either of these are great resources!)

Thanks for taking a few minutes to check out one or two—or all ten!—of these inspiring blogs!

I hope you are enjoying a relaxing, healthy summer,

Thanks for including therapy fun zone. I will have to check out some of those other blogs that I haven't visited before. A good idea for a post, and I may copy you and post about my favorite sites to visit too.

Tonya, I really hope folks will check out your Therapy Fun Zone site. Not only is is filled with awesome ideas for therapists, but families will find great ideas they can use at home. You have a unique way of bringing "therapy value" into kids' play without it even feeling like work! Your site is a gem!

Barbara, thank you so much for letting me know about the problem with comments and for the solution as well! For any of you Bloggers who are having trouble with comments, Barbara shared that the trouble comes with embedded comments. If you set your comments to display as a pop-up, it should resolve the issue. THANK YOU Barbara!

I encourage anyone who hasn't read Barbara's blog "TherExtras" (link above) to take a browse. You will enjoy her humor and learn some interesting and insightful things as well. Happy reading!
