2012 Prep

Okay, so Kathryn and I are getting ready for ASDay 2012!!

First and foremost, we went over the responses on whether we should change our name.  It was a close call, but "no" was the winning response.  So Autistics Speaking Day we will remain.

Second, this year we hope to have some volunteers to help run things.  If the last two years indicate anything, we're going to need people to help out.

We're planning on have people assigned to cover the submission form (which is up, by the way, if you have something prepared in advance) on 2-hour shifts so no one gets burned out.  Also, people will be assigned to specific areas, like to moderate Facebook or Twitter.  They will also be able to post entries on the official blog, if people don't want to submit to the form.

Our system of tags will be the same as last year. 

Third, we have here, the official blog.  We'll also have the Twitter feed going and the Facebook group/event.  We're looking into having a chat room up on chatzy.

And that's it right now.

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, don't hesitate to ask!


  1. Just thought of one- is there a button people can put on their blogs that links back to the site and tells readers that this person participated? Kind of like the Autism Positivity Flash Blog?

    1. That is a good idea! Well, I need to work on updating some images for Tumblr, so I'll try to make something. People are also totally free to make their own buttons if they want.
