Blawg Lite Life

I apologize for the blawg lite status around here recently.  I do hope to change that soon.

In the meantime, a couple of things.

First, there's a new book review up behind the wall - Everything you NEVER wanted your kids to know about SEX (but were afraid they would ask): The Secrets to Surviving Your Child's Sexual Development from Birth to the Teens.  Although neither disability-specific nor legal-specific, I do recommend it.  Go see why.

Also the next book I intend to review - Raising a Kid with Special Needs - The Complete Canadian Guide (read but not yet reviewed).  Anyone who has done any reading on the disability issue will immediately recognize just how rare it is to see a Canadian book on the topic.  'Nuff said for for now.

To be (hopefully) followed by Sexuality: Your Sons and Daughters with Intellectual Disabilities (again read but not yet reviewed). Yes, yes, you might be seeing a bit of a pattern here.   But I am the mother of two teenage girls ... what do you expect?

On a different note, a thought I would like to share (or, perhaps, bounce off you might be more accurate).

I'm not much of a "social media" person (blogging aside) - in fact, I think I must be one of the few remaining North Americans not on Facebook. But it's recently occurred to me that perhaps the time has come to take the plunge, so to speak - often I will come across an interesting story (online or in the newspaper) that I really want to blog about.  Really intend to blog about.  But never actually get to.

So I am wondering how well a Twitter page (I must confess that I do rather cringe at the thought of being a 'tweeter', or is that 'twit') would go over.  At the very least it would give me a forum to throw out those subjects/events that I think are really important, that we really do need to talk about, whether or not I actually get the time to blog them.  As opposed to having them lost in the sand of times, the way they often are now. Despite my best intentions.

The way I see it, some would remain tweets while others would turn eventually turn into full blawg posts. So what do you think?  Are there any twits tweeters out there?
