You’re reading the world’s 6th most popular disability blog!

Posted on April 23, 2014

Those of us here at the coop (!) were pleased to get an email recently from a disability researcher called Joseph Reddington, informing us that The Limping Chicken is the world’s 6th most popular disability blog, ranked by traffic.

Reddington works at the Royal Holloway and regularly blogs on a range of issues, including disability (he has a disabled sibling). He told us why he’s started ranking disability blogs: “Disability is historically under-mapped in all contexts, and the internet is no different, when you start to really dig down you find many, often quite large communities, focusing on the same issues, that have really no awareness of each other’s existence.”

Reddington’s on the look out for other blogs to be included in the ranking. He added: “This could only happen with the help of all the people who’ve send me sites to be included in the ranking – new sites are being added all the time and if the Limping Chicken readers know of anything that should be on the list but isn’t, then I’d really appreciate a comment on the list giving me the URL.”

Do leave a comment on his site suggesting other blogs Reddington should be aware of. Here’s a screengrab of the list as it stands:
