With their taxes paid (hopefully), the #CPChatNow community gathered at Twitter for our weekly cerebral palsy Twitter chat. While we bill the chat as a “cerebral palsy Twitter chat,” not everything connects directly to CP. For instance, last night the National Hockey League (NHL) dominated the conversation a lot. Now eventually the NHL talk segued…

National Cerebral Palsy (CP) Awareness Month last month motivated me to go out and write guest posts for other blogs. Back in early 2012 I made a concerted effort through guest blogging to build up my name and let people know about my cerebral palsy memoir Off Balanced. Guest blogging even led to future clients…

On National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day we in the #CPChatNow community put out the welcome mat and presented our second ever focus chat. Rather than inviting an external expert to answer questions, we served as the experts. After all who knows more about cerebral palsy than us? We live with the disability! Anticipation built to…

If you notice people out in mass Wednesday wearing green, do not go looking for corn beef and green beer. Rather than a belated St. Patrick’s Day celebration, these people will wear green to recognize National Cerebral Palsy (CP) Awareness Day. At least the majority will.

Last night’s  #CPChatNow discussion started off slow. Seemingly life kept people occupied. I mentioned a couple announcements but I wanted to wait until the conversation picked up before making them. That began to happen when Hailey talked about getting new shoes. Hailey’s tweet to Vans led me to ask a question. Also Hailey shared exciting…
