Further to the reblogs posted yesterday here is this well written piece that gives a very thoughtful and insightful view. Yes, I should read the book myself but I value my mental health so I shall not, well not for the foreseeable future.
This is helpful if you don’t want or do want snow on your blog. I’m avoiding all snowflake blogs for the duration due to sensory processing order that is associated with my autism. Thanks to BlogPad Pro for enlightening me on this subject.
I’ve just found the setting for mine, (I didn’t know my blog had one), and ensured it’s switched to off.
It’s that time of year once again, where we’re all starting to feel some festive cheer, and you might have noticed falling snow appearing on some of your favourite WordPress.com blogs
Are you wondering how to turn this option on?
Go to your online dashboard > Settings > General
Scroll to the bottom of the page and you’ll see “Show falling snow on my blog until January 4th” – simply check the box to turn on some festive falling snow.
If you’ve suddenly discovered falling snow on your blog (maybe you turned this option on last year), simply uncheck the button to turn off.
Invisible disability is a term I have used. Lately it makes me feel a tad uncomfortable. This post goes someway, perhaps, in explaining why…
This is really helpful. Thanks Jasper 🙂
I need to plan for contingencies
I’m nearing the end of my third year living with an ABI (Acquired Brain Injury). Over time I have be able to recognize and tune into about a dozen signals my body gives me when I’m nearing the limits of my sensory loading.
Within the context of dealing with sensory loading, often someone will ask how I’m doing. When casually meeting someone it varies how I answer the question. My answer would be ‘fine’ if I considered the question a greeting. My answer would involve greater or lesser details if it was a question about my well being.
When someone is asking about my well being a succinct response would be easier. I usually respond with varying degrees of detail. A brief response would be easier and more helpful.
Stop Light Metaphor
I have been thinking about it using the image of a stoplight…

Snowflakes are lovely… mostly… I like real ones, and I like them knitted, crocheted, cut from folded paper, still photographs etc etc.
But… I don’t like moving
snowflakes across a screen of text.
What we do with the appearance of our blogs is really up to each author; but if I follow your blog and you have chosen to have snow falling across your page I’m not going to be able to read your posts. I know that I could read via the other way – bright white background and wide width of text – but that too is problematic for me. So please don’t take it personally, but I won’t be able to hang around long enough to ‘like’ or write a comment.
I’m interested to know if this is an issue for other people?
I hesitated in writing this but thought best to be upfront about it.
With love, Tracey xxx 💙
Postscript: the column of words above were meant to be in a different space on each line but publishing has put them into a column. I have tried editing but the words stubbornly refuse to do as they are told. Tut tut… such naughtiness.
Postscript 2: I’ve edited again because what Jasper has to say in the comments is correct. It did sound like I was apologising for myself.
