Endnotes (back to top)

Here are even more Autistic blogs.

1 All blogs are English-language, written by (professionally- or self-diagnosed) Actually Autistic people (though a few blogs include non-Autistic contributors) about our personal experiences with autism (as opposed to “Autism Blogs” written by families, professionals, and others).

2 The Autistic blogs search engine searches exclusively within Actually Autistic blogs (a few of which include non-Autistic contributors). For example, type “Atypical Netflix” or “Identity First” into the search bar to find out how Autistic people feel regarding the Netflix series “Atypical” or the issue of Identity-First vs. Person-First Language.

Nearly all Autistic bloggers have been contacted to request input on how they want their blogs listed (and about 30% responded). All issues raised in the comments have been resolved. If you have any concerns please comment below or contact us.

      • I went into the WordPress reader and set my tags for “autism” and “Asperger’s” – and that brought up a lot of blogs, and I followed the ones about autism and Asperger’s that had posts I liked. Also, a lot of people follow me, so that’s how I find out about them, too.

    • It’s a labor of love and gratitude for all Autistic bloggers (like yourself) who share your inner lives so candidly. I’ve read your archives (it took me several days) for all your blogs I linked to (plus your professional blog, which you probably don’t want linked to). Thank you for your honesty and candor.

  3. Amazing list! Well done! I’ve just gotten a great idea for how to signal boost autistic writing. We could use your list as a starting place. We need to collect all the RSS feed urls for these blogs. We can then insert them into a website – I just reserved a domain we can use to publicize great autistic writing. Signal boosting actually autistic people is so important.

    • Thank you. I would love some help with this project.

      What domain name did you reserve? In what format do you want me to provide you with the RSS feed urls? If you give me an example of a properly-formatted entry I will follow that example with all the others.

  4. Good initiative. In the future as the list keeps expanding to a possibly daunting length, I’d love to see ways to filter and create sub-lists that aren’t primarily related to gender, sexuality and parenthood. Categories that would be relevant to me when exploring the list for blogs I’d like to read, would be things like the blog’s primary focus/topics, the blogger’s interests, education and occupation, understanding & inclusion of non-human animals (e.g. do they have pets at home and what kind, are they working with or have worked with animals, are they totally human-centric or have a more bio-diverse perspective), writing style (but that can’t be meaningfully categorised), and artistic creativity, e.g. do they create cartoons or music… and possible more that doesn’t come to mind right now

    • I meant something like a tag-based or boolean operators-like system, where each blog can appear on several sub-lists based on what is being searched on, but otherwise all basically remain the same long list when unfiltered, so there aren’t barriers between for example different gender identities, or parents and non-parents, unless that is what’s filtered for

      • Anna, I’m honored that you chose to comment on my blog. I’ve
        been loving your blog in its various incarnations (from when mados.wordpress.com was still public) and have worried about you. Would you care to give us a blog update sometime?

        You were my second follower two years ago. Thank you for that.

        Your ideas are good but would take more time and effort to implement than I can afford. The most time-consuming part would be reading through the blogs to categorize them appropriately. Would you be willing to help with that?

        Liked by 3 people

      • Aw thank you so much for your nice words about my blog, that made my day:-) My dilemma is always fear of oversharing/uncertainty about boundaries because blogging is such a strange personal/public diary-like medium, and also that I am a slow writer so it takes quite some time to write a post, and I’m unsure of its value to others, so your positive feedback is very encouraging. I’d love to get into a habit of blogging regularly (like once a month or so), and I miss the regular interactive communication in the blogging community.

        Re. helping with categorising: yes sure, I’ll be happy to… although it depends when it will be, and if I have the time when it happens. but actually it could be done with a table in a shared spreadsheet gradually evolving over time, where all the blogs in the long blog list are read/skimmed one by one & categories added to each in the table. Then later the filtered search option could be created with the most most used categories.

        An additional idea: when reading or skimming through the blogs, in addition to just adding the relevant categories to them in a list, what about writing a brief (like 1 – 3 passages and a screen shot) presentation of each blog and its author, as blog posts on this blog? in addition to the long list. That could provide a consistently structured catalogue of autistic blogs. It would also e.g. allow the blogs’ authors to reply to questions in regard to their blog, where it is easy for other potential readers to see them and ask ore questions, as they are perusing the brief blog descriptions. Also, if the categories each blog is assigned to were added as tags to the blog posts, then that would in itself provide the filtered search option

  5. For me as a reader there’s no such thing as oversharing: I’m endlessly fascinated with people’s inner lives (and can choose not to read if it gets too much). As a writer sharing my inner life feels like ripping my toenails off. The most successful bloggers seem to be those for whom writing comes naturally, who have kept journals since learning to write. That’s not me.

    Regarding your generous offer, I have sent you an email. For anyone else reading this, offers to help are much appreciated.

    • Thank you for including my blog on the list! I know I’m commenting long after this conversation, but was anything resolved with this categorizing/tagging idea? It seems like a very good idea given the number of blogs listed. A simple form sent out to each participating blogger, perhaps? A list of common/appropriate tags that they can check if it applies to their blog topics (autism traits/gender/animals/creative arts/etc) with room for them to suggest other tags you might have missed. Obviously you couldn’t get too specific, but it would be very helpful and would certainly be far less time-consuming than wading through each blog trying to collect topics/tags by reading posts.

  6. Being new to all this I find it quite overwhelming. Too much to assimilate at same time.. need to concentrate on process of blogging before investigating my gender status further. Feel that there are answers to my awkwardness with self from early childhood onwards.
    Can’t deal with everything at once. Just found my way through the communications door and need to get that sorted re blogging. Have placed an order thru’ local Library for appropriate book on WordPress with ” visuals’ .
    Hope to become a more frequent blogger and would appreciate any tips on how to identify cyberbullies etc. as am generally too trusting and had problems in the past on FB.

  7. Erm.

    Uh.

    So you made some pretty significant assumptions about people’s genders and sexualities. And you kinda sorta outed people who aren’t out on those axes.

    So yeah that’s a thing that happened. A list is good. These categories are squicky.

    • Thanks for commenting. The categories were suggested by an autistic blogger. Do you have a suggestion for improving them (if so, how) or would you rather they be eliminated entirely?

      This may be a case of “you can’t please everyone” but I want to try.

      Would you like me to change how your blog is listed? If so, how? If you would like your blog eliminated from the list please email me through the “Contact me” menu item at the top of the page

  8. Why is my blog on this list. More importantly why is it misgendering me. Why is it mislabelling my sexuality and why is it mis labelling my parental status.
    I find this very concerning.
    I wonder why I was never even asked. Oh that’s right we don’t bother to ask the actually autistic now do we.

    • I apologize for misrepresenting you. Please let me know how you’d rather be listed (or if you’d prefer I eliminate your blog from the list entirely).

      I have been planning to contact all the bloggers on the list but with nearly 900 blogs that will be time-consuming. I will gladly accept help on this if you’re willing to volunteer. Meanwhile I’ve invited people (on the “About the list” menu item at the top of the page) to request changes to the list (and I’m delighted when people do).

      • It’s just not really good enough. You have labelled people as cis or non cis you have labelled people as parents or non parents, as heterosexual or not. You have made assumptions about all of these. This is extremely poor form.
        A person should have autonomy over their own coming out and for some you have stuffed that right up. It’s just not really good enough.
        Some NB and Trans people are not out for reasons of safety and you have placed that safety at risk for them.
        To be perfectly honest I am not too concerned about how many people are on the list you should have contacted them before you put them on the list, it’s a simple courtesy. Claiming there are too many is really just not good enough.

        I will tell you this, I am not male, I am not heterosexual, I am a parent, I have both autistic and non-autistic children. Yet you seem to think it all ok to totally fuck this up in every possible way. And even now you still have me in that same position on your list.

  9. I very much appreciate my listing and the time it took to put this all together. However, I also appreciate the gender/sexuality assumptions being addressed by others because I wasn’t at all sure how to begin addressing that. I’ve been thinking about it all day and here are my thoughts:

    It’s a tricky thing to categorize by gender/sexuality in the first place, because while some of us are intentionally a bit vague surrounding our gender/sexuality and wouldn’t want to be necessarily categorized as an identity we either haven’t fully embraced or fully come out as – it’s also disconcerting, at the very minimum, to be listed as something one isn’t. Also, at the present time, with the current categories, I don’t particularly want to be moved from the category I’m in right now for at least a couple reasons (partly why I wasn’t sure about how to address it), but it’s still disconcerting.

    So, I think a category system not gender/sexuality-based would be better. I’d certainly prefer it. Such a system wouldn’t out or misgender anyone, at least. Currently being updated blogs vs blogs that are basically archives would be helpful, for example. Or just a simple alphabetical listing with symbols after them the way you have them now, but only added after you or someone else has checked with the blogger in question and they’ve chosen their own symbols. If you wanted to get fancy about it and had the technical know-how (or knew someone who did – I could possibly figure it out) then the symbols could be links that would bring up all the listings with that symbol on a different page. Those who don’t want any symbols could simply be listed without the symbols. It might also be nice to have a brief (one-sentence-ish) summary written by each blogger after their listing.

    There are many other categorization possibilities too 🙂 I’m sure you’ll come up with something that works well.

    Changing it around and getting consent from everyone would be a huge task, no doubt, but it would be an invaluable resource with more accurate (and possibly more easily accessible) listings. You’d also have the consent of those listed before being labeled, which is a very important thing. I’m not sure if other bloggers would want consent before being listed in the first place (that part doesn’t bother me personally), but that’s something else to consider.

    I would possibly be able to help with emailing people and rearranging things in the new year so please let me know (you can email me from my blog) if you want/need help with such an endeavor and how you would like to go about doing it.

  10. Quite frankly, I find that the categorization is gross, misinformed, and makes lots of assumptions. I am neither cis nor heterosexual, and I’ve talked about that a bit on my actual linked blog, so honestly, I’m finding that this reflects a lack of research on your part.

    The rating system is also pretty appalling. I consider myself a decent writer, but I know that there are writers on this list with far better blogs than my own who are rated lower. Is that because they are more likely to take the time to speak out against injustice? Because I see people on this list who are rated entirely too low for their blog content and miscategorized.

    Come up with a better system. I mean I’m glad that you did fix the fact that I am Autistic and my kids are too, but you’re still misgendering me and making assumptions about my sexual orientation.

    It’s gross and it needs to stop.

      I apologize for miscategorizing you. If you’re not satisfied with your current listing please let me know exactly what you want it changed to.

      The decision to categorize the blogs was made at the request of an autistic blogger. Everything in the listings is based upon publicly available information on the blogs themselves, although unfortunately some mistakes were made. These will soon be rectified by contacting bloggers individually for their corrections. I have received volunteer offers of help with this, for which I’m immensely grateful. I will gladly accept more help from anyone willing to volunteer.

      I agree there’s a lot of arbitrariness in the rating system. Please tell me which blogs you think are unfairly rated and I’ll probably increase their ratings. Generally I’ll increase a blogger’s rating upon request.

      I encourage everyone to contact me if they want to change how any blog is listed or have suggestions for improving the list.

      Thanks for your feedback and helping me improve the list. I may not be able to please everyone but I want to try.

      • Well, I haven’t been The Caffeinated Autistic in about three years, if not more. I have ADHD on top of being autistic, so forgive me if my understanding of time is a bit off.

        I think, to me, the problem lies in the fact that not only did you not obtain consent from the people on this list and how they were categorized, but you made assumptions as to people’s gender and specific diagnosis and the diagnosis of their children. I remember when my name was on the list and you had my kids listed as not autistic, which is bizarre to me because in my description, I refer to them as multiply neurodivergent, and if you took two minutes to peruse my blog, especially the earlier entries, you would know their diagnosis. And that’s fine for my kids. But the problem is that there are people who don’t list their kids’ diagnosis because of safety and privacy reasons. My kids are old enough to share that information, but some others don’t feel it’d be a good idea to share that with the world and given the way that educators and social services treat autistic parents I don’t freaking blame them!

        Basically it comes down to please don’t assume. If you don’t know, you don’t know and you could just classify people as “unknown gender and sexuality or unknown diagnosis”.

        As for me, I am a nonbinary trans person who uses they/them pronouns. I mostly call myself queer because of the specific folks I’m attracted to, most of whom do not fall under the cishet umbrella . In addition to being Autistic, I am also hard of hearing and have ADHD. The rest of your blurb is accurate. Please don’t try and link to my tumblr blog, though, because that particular one is currently defunct.

      • Thank you for your additional comment. There are many neurodivergences besides autism so I don’t consider “multiply neurodivergent” to imply “autistic”. “Two minutes to peruse [your] blog” adds up to almost 30 hours when multiplied by the approximately 870 blogs on the list.

        I have implemented your corrections and added the following text above the list:

        << All information below came from the blogs themselves though some mistakes have been made. Please contact us with corrections or additions and do not rely on the list being accurate. >>

        I realize this isn’t a complete solution but I hope it’s a step in the right direction.

      • Consent. That’s what you’re missing. You’re missing the consent of people on this list. Do you honestly not understand that categorizing people by assumed body type (thanks, AFAB gives me nearly as much dysphoria as being described as a cis female) and by what you think is true of them based on a Google search is really awful?

        I don’t think you really get this but you are putting a lot of folks in danger, and your excuse is “it’s a lot of work”. Well, yeah, of course it is! But if you decide to take on something of this magnitude? It’s your responsibility to represent people properly and do the one thing you’ve yet to do here – obtain consent from everyone on the list if you plan on categorizing them this way.

        If you don’t know, then don’t make assumptions! You assume I’m a cis woman because what? You’ve found a picture of me and think I look female? News flash! Cishet shouldn’t be the default! Stop assuming people’s gender and maybe ask for their permission to be listed this way.

        It’s not that difficult to respect people. It’s really not.

      • But you aren’t, not really. You’re not taking the “consent matters” part seriously.

        So I’m withdrawing mine. Remove my blog from this list. I don’t want someone who doesn’t understand the basic tenets of what is consent to be linking to my blog.

        (Also, helpful tip? doing a search and replace of AFAB/AMAB to NB is sorely missing the point.)

  11. I know of several bloggers on here who are probably uncomfortable having their assigned gender at birth stated, especially when they identify as trans or nonbinary.
    Wouldn’t it make more sense to either stick with lables like “men”, “women”, “nonbinary”, and listing trans men as men and trans women as women, and then let bloggers chose if they wanted further information public, or eliminate the gender divides altogether?
    When you label someone as “AFAB” or “AMAB” in addition to or in place of their prefered gender, you are sticking them back in a gendered box that they do not fit in. And you are outing them without their consent. This is dangerous both to nobinary individuals, and trans people who might not be out as transgender. It’s also rude, as it reduces people to their genitals (sometimes inaccurately) rather than their identity.
    I can think of so many other things I would want to know about the bloggers I follow, such as if they’re activists, if they blog mostly about things unrelated to autism, or if they’re active in multiple disability communities.

  12. I really don’t think replacing AMAB and AFAB with NB is worth a dime of shit to be honest. I note you changed me from cis het to NB when this is also not accurate, not only did you do this change without any real consultation you have continued to do so with out consent.
    It’s really not ok to just list people like this. It’s not just a link on a page to a blog, if it were simply that it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but it’s more than that, you have added a whole rating and categorisation system that is not only arbitrary and inaccurate but also a system that places some people in actual danger. Physical danger, mental health danger and relationship danger.

    What remains clear is that you are more concerned with doing whatever the fuck you want than you are with putting in the effort to ensure that you are not misgenderinng, unceromoniously outing and misrepresenting peoples sexuality.

    And really what the actual fuck has someones sexuality got to do with them being an autistic blogger. This still leaves me scratching my head to fathom..

    But yes the big thing you fail to comprehend here is CONSENT. You don’t have it. You should remove any of those descriptors and categorisations for every blogger except those that have explicitly consented.

    • Like for me, if I weren’t already involved in the LGBTQA autistic community, I’d probably like to know who is queer friendly and such? But I don’t need specifics. And I don’t need inaccurate specifics about other people’s bodies.

      It’s outing without consent. And that’s what the op doesn’t seem to get. It’s awful.

      • “It’s too much work” is the exact answer I got when I asked a production company who premieres various television shows and Broadway shows in movie theaters why they couldn’t provide captions (especially in the case of the TV shows, for which captions already exist).

        So do with that information as you will.

    • I chose not to identify regarding gender stating other attributes but was pursued to give a gender identity reply. Somehow I thought that must have been a “necessary “to be ” accepted ” on Actually Autistic site… I struggle to deal with technology and the various protocols.
      As others have mentioned I’m not really pleased about having my status open to all and sundry… it is my business alone.

      Is there another agenda behind this gender identity project?

  13. You really have categories of “female sounding” and “male sounding” names?? That is 100% unacceptable. It is gross, erases trans, non-binary, and intersex individuals. It ignores unisex names and it is very English language-centric. Hell, it’s fairly American-centric. Honestly this whole listing is a mess with your categories being based primarily on gender & sexuality and largely lacking consent. Your excuse of it taking too much time to ask for consent does not hold water. If you do not have enough time to do a project properly, do not undertake it. At the very least, do not make excuses when you are called out for your mistakes. Apologize and work to /properly/ correct them instead. Remove the gender & sexuality based categories completely until you obtain consent, list all autistic parents simply as “autistic parents of autistic kids” or “other autistic parents”. List others as “autistic non-parents.” Give brief descriptions of the blogs and add more categories as you obtain consent for listing them a certain way and/or have time to peruse them further. You can improve your categories and search features over time, but there is absolutely no excuse to continue to list people’s genders and sexualities, both misgendering and outing without consent, after numerous people have brought to your attention that it’s wrong to do so.

  15. OK. Here are a few more problems: listing year of diagnosis, listing nationality or country of origin, listing psych diagnoses, listing age or approximate age. Are you working for the government or what?!?

    Keep it simple. parents, autistics. Easier for you. Safer for us.

    You have really pushed a few buttons with safety and gender issues.

  16. I can appreciate all the effort you have gone to to compile and now to amend the list. You must have had some idea behind formulating your categories and possibly if consent was sought the reaction by some may have been different.

    I notice that a “poll” was mentioned as a means by which people could choose to anonymously furnish you with the data ( as in numbers of respondents to each category) , however, it is preferable to outline the purpose of requesting such information.

    Personally I can see that the data you were collecting may prove more than interesting regarding certain areas of research into understanding autism, however, confidentiality and consent are necessary, not optional.

    It is very difficult to foresee all ramifications when working alone without input /feedback from others.

    Those who were misrepresented and those of whom you ” assumed gender identity” rightly have cause for grievance but I feel your actions may have been more the product of enthusiasm and naivety rather than of mal -intent .

    Hopefully you will receive well meaning suggestions, possibly offers of help as some above have given, so that fracture/rupture within the community is avoided and respect is maintained from and to all parties.

  17. Hi! 😊 For the record, I’m grateful to be listed. It gives me a warm fuzzy included feeling! You may categorize me however you see fit; I’m indeed a 39-year-old non-binary female who is married to a male partner, with no children.

    Oooh! I have an idea – maybe an adult-diagnosed category? We share some unique experiences 😊 Just an idea, though.

    Anyway, thank you and hats off to you for all of your hard work and exhaustive efforts! Your list is truly a labor of love, and I appreciate it! ❤️

    • I’ve put you in the LGBTQ+ category with the following description:

      39; Dx39; Non-binary woman, Married, Childfree

      Is this OK? Generally when people fit more than one category I recommend the smaller one, where the blog will stand out more.

      I’ll think about a separate adult-diagnosed category, For now I’ll continue specifying age (or year) of diagnosis.

    • What categories and headings would you find most useful? Are text searches an acceptable substitute? For example, we previously had a category “Mothers of Autistic child(ren)”. Now that information has been added to the descriptions, which you can find by searching for “Mother of Autistic”. (This is still in process, not yet complete.)

      Do you have any suggestions for making the list less overwhelming and more useful?

      • I know it would be time consuming, a huge undertaking where major subject threads such as
        ” Diagnosis” & Post Diagnosis”, ” Sensory issues”, ” Mental Processing Styles”, ” Perception”, ” Empathy”, Emotions * Alexithymia”.

        I’ve tried to keep the terminology as non jargonistic as possible, or qualified, to cater for a broad autistic audience. Not all are familiar with current terminology used in research or by the Autistic Community.

  19. I am sorry for all the flack you are receiving. I get that one has to be careful and have consent…but at the same time, you are trying to do a good thing and while its good to suggest changes, the way it has been done a few times to you isnt very kind. It is the difference between good etiquette and boundaries even when something needs to be challenged and a strong sense of self versus feeling threatened and having a lot of past history that causes anger and reproach…which is understandable too but im sorry you are getting the blunt side of things…You know what I would do? But it is a lot more work and you have done a lot…but if you want to move past all of this- eventually I would just change it to alphabetical order and leave out all descriptions and let people sort through those themselves:) It was a sweet gesture but let others do the work. ANd then I would delete all these comments or start on a fresh page and give it a new beginning…What I dislike is that fellow autistics are not giving you understanding for being autistic…which means….that we are all not the same, we are not all well versed in the apporpriate labels, ableism lingo nor even what is appropriate…most of us are concerned about that stuff but we dont all have an equal level of knowledge and you are getting flack for a well meaning gesture that you did not fully understand and your brain simply was doing the best it could in trying to appease everyone but you are also wired differently and it was a well intentioned gesture. Yes, maybe a few things could change for safety reasons but you were not being malicious or meaning to threaten safety- you just wanted to get things out there…but lists can be a little dangerous if too specific….so maybe would you consider simply making it alphabetical and for going all the descriptions and allow others to make their own discoveries of blogs? That way you did your part but others can do theirs and you dont have to take all this controversy?
    THank you for including me on this list…I actually did write a description for mine as requested but I am ok with it not being included…and if you do alphabetical then the rating system also seems less intrusive:)

  20. I also wrote this on my blog to you in case you don’t re check I will leave it here too:
    I am truly sorry for all the flack you received from fellow autistics…while I do believe there is some merit in the essence of what they were saying and of course, we are not always socially appropriate, I disliked how there was not consideration that you are also autistic and were doing things out of pure intent even if some of it was maybe not presented in a way in which people felt safe…I hope you can maybe consider my suggestion to simply list the blogs alphabetically with no descriptions and with wiping all the comments for a fresh start…this way it protects your boundaries but still accomplishes your goals but it also will make others feel safer and a less controversial list…I don’t know if you will have time to check back here but 900 blogs is a lot of work. Thank you for putting in effort to what mattered in your heart to do…that is a very amazing feat. I am sorry for the flack and while I do agree that perhaps the descriptions and safety of the list could be addressed slightly different- I probably would have done the same as you- got myself in a heap of controversery while trying to do a good thing…it’s the story of an aspie life at times…but I think it is more hurtful when people of “your tribe” who are supposed to get that you have these moments, come down harshly on you- the rest of the world does that enough. I am truly sorry, as a fellow autistic, I have been there…like any other human category – there are truly compassionate kind people and there are damaged, threatening or unsafe people and thats ok…or simply people who kindly challenge and hold their boundaries but do it in a way that is also safe to others…You got a bit of both on here and it changed my reading list a bit by how others treated you. At the same time- do consider boundaries for both your safety and others? They are hard and I know it erases some of the work you did by simply listing alphabetically without any other descriptors but at least you still have that amazing list you did!!!! Maybe try to make it work for you too and honour yourself while also considering safety?
    thanks!

  21. GREAT list – amazing service – and I have linked here from my April Mental Health Awareness Calendar under the National Autism Awareness Month/Day category – which I will continue for as long as both of our blogs are extant. I also included your “share” graphic, with a link to your share page.

    My heart goes out to you as I read the angry comments and helpful suggestions about what YOU can do better (for free) with the moments of your life — with seemingly zero awareness of how much work already went into this list, what a great service this is to the blogging community, and that they are biting off the hand of a HUMAN BEING with feelings who is attempting to feed them. OR that you have other items in your life that deserve time and attention. Front-runners take the potshots, unfortunately.

    I was the target of many unfair “pies in the face” ongoingly after I developed the first ADD/EFD-specific coaching curriculum as well (long before the advent of blogging, btw). Looking back to how I felt, I imagine it probably hurts your feelings and that you are likely to ruminate over some of the angry and actually cruel assumptions and comments – maybe even thinking about abandoning the project altogether on your worst days.

    I ultimately had to decide not to link to my student’s sites (etc.) or even do a listing of graduates, because all of the [metaphorical] “animals” wanted to tell Henny Penny how to bake the [metaphorical] bread so that it would be perfect for them to “eat” – but nobody wanted to step forward to help bake all these new kinds of “bread!”

    It was a real loss to the community which slowed down the ability of new coaches to get found considerably, but I was already overworked, under-slept and underpaid, and could only do it in a manner that made total sense to ME.

    MY SUGGESTION based on my experience: DO LESS.

    Take complainers off the list entirely, telling them that if they discover that they actually would like to be found more easily to continue to be a service to the community, they can submit in a comment (WITH the categories they want you to use) and whenever you can squeeze in the additional time you will relist them.

    As for the need to ask permission before listing so that you “out” no one:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If they are on the web as spectrum bloggers they are already out. If they do not wish to be, WordPress has a feature where they can mark their blogs private and they can handle approving follower requests by email – time consuming, btw.

    Expecting you to add many more hours of your [unbillable] time to penpal everyone first is unrealistic and unthinking. LinkLists are no different from links – simply a way to find resources that are already public.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This comment is for YOUR benefit, btw, so if you want it visible for others OR decide not to share any words of my comment that might stir up more unpleasantness, please feel free to edit as you wish (or to leave it unapproved).

  22. Hi there, this is a great list and I just wondered if I could maybe toot my own horn and suggest mine? The site is http://www.sillygoose.me and while it doesn’t have an autism-specific focus everything I write about is, in some form, heavily influenced by a life on the spectrum and I have talked about it, to an extent, a few times on the blog.

    If you could add me that would be awesome 🙂

    • Would you be willing to introduce a category or tag for your autism-related posts? It’s impossible to find them using Google (which does not offer case-sensitive searches) because you abbreviate Asperger’s Syndrome as “AS” throughout your blog.

      Yes, I will include your blog. Please personalize your blog’s description by selecting “About the list/How do you want your blog listed?” from the top menu.

      Thank you.

      • The criteria for inclusion in the list is blogs written in English by (professionally or self-diagnosed) Actually Autistic people about our personal experiences with autism, so your blog qualifies (with or without autism posts tagged or categorized). However blogs like yours with wide-ranging subject matters are usually listed by their autism tag or category if it exists.

        Please let us know if you introduce an autism tag or category that you want included on the Actually Autistic Blogs List. Thanks.

Is it possible for all those teenagers who write about suffering with autism themselves could be under a separate heading to those blogs belonging to parents of those with autism? As much as I love reading the parents point of view it’s nice to gel with different people your age that understand where you’re coming from. 🙂 great blogs though!!
