Each month, we feature a new blog in our monthly newsletter. These are the blogs we've enjoyed reading, posted a bunch of resources from, and/or just want the world to know about! They're sure to become your favorites.

Illustrated with beautiful watercolor paintings, How to Get On is "a little spoonie guide on how to navigate 'the system' and how to live a great, disabled life."
The site contains articles on applying for and receiving disability benefits, and a whole lot more!
The resources here are mostly US-based, but the advice will likely be a big help for folks from other countries, too.
When Tania Talks... you'll want to listen! This prolific blogger skillfully weaves together the topics of "beauty, fashion, lifestyle, chronic illness and disability," and we find ourselves linking to her work embarrassingly often.
She's also the creator of the popular Friday night #SpoonieSpeak Twitter chat.
A reincarnation of the wonderful Femsplain, Aloe is an online resource centered on self care. In addition to publishing articles and a newsletter, these innovators have a delightful Twitter presence with a bot that allows followers to tend to a digital community garden, send flowers to others, and more.
Look out for their check-in app, which is in the works now and promises to be just fantastic.
Although we only recently ran into Let's Queer Things Up!, we've already featured several articles from prolific and thoughtful writer Sam Dylan Finch.
Sam covers the intersections of trans/queer identity, mental health, and social justice, and he does it remarkably well. Definitely a must-follow!
This trio of blogs by the prolific Nina cover physical & mental illness, coping skills (including CBT/DBT), illness management, and positivity. Topics of special interest include post-concussion syndrome, EDS and co-morbid conditions, a wide range of mental illness, and much more. We regularly find all sorts of fantastic resources through her work.
