Get The Word Out Wednesday Link Up #12

Get the Word Out Wednesday

After a rough week last week at The Zippy I hope we are back on track now.

A little peek into the week:  My eldest, who can barely walk through my house with a walker and has been constantly falling was diagnosed with fibro in addition to EDS, my computer crashed and I lost a book review (Rachel I promise it is coming), the second part of my personal story and everything I had prepared for the EDS Awareness Campaign (that will be shared Friday) and to top it off I developed a death grip migraine over the weekend.

Needless to say those 10 days are over and I am thrilled! My story is retyped and will air tomorrow, the campaign website (thanks to the help of some great women) should go live Friday and my migraine is just a nagging headache.

“Get the Word Out Wednesday” Link-up will be available EVERY Wednesday for blogs featuring articles that will help those with a chronic illness.

This linkup is not only for zebras but ANYONE with a chronic illness that has a personal story, help (allergen-free recipes, ideas), adaptation ideas, testimonial or anything that would be helpful or encouraging to others, (even sharing a day in your life).

The idea of the “Get The Word Out” link-up is to spread the word about our illnesses, adaptations, short-cuts, tools, articles, stories, etc… and support each other during this sometimes lonely journey.

Bloggers struggling with pain and challenges can visit other sites, while non-bloggers can find others like them and follow along while offering encouragement to one another.

I LOVE fun crafty, save money, anything goes linkups but the “Get The Word Out” Link-up is not one of those. We will have a few rules to keep the links useful and uplifting to our readers


1.) Blog Links must be family friendly and link to a post. Not a home page. You may link up to 3 posts in one link-up party.

2.) The links used can offer personal stories of your life with a chronic illness, pain, handicap, physical challenge or invisible illness. Income earning ideas for those with physical challenges (not promoting your downline specifically-it must be an actual post sharing what it is how and it helped you.) Tools (splints, braces, grabbers, kitchen tools, etc… that have helped you in some way to “adapt” to your challenge (illness), recipes adapted to deal with an allergy, articles on helping a child with physical or mental challenges (diet, behavior, sensory, ADD, ADHD, etc…), articles on awareness, information, compiled useful lists, etc…

3.) If you are a reader and do not have a blog but would like to offer an article you feel would be helpful. Just leave the name or a link in the comments and our readers can look it up and I will contact them about joining our weekly link-up. (Hopefully as word spreads we were have an abundance of articles to offer.)

New To Link-ups?

Bloggers here’s how:

1.) At the bottom of this post you will find a blue button that says “Add Your Link”. Click on it.

2.) Follow the instructions on the next page. Please remember to link to a specific post and not your main page. (We encourage readers to explore your page but do not want them to get frustrated and quit looking if they cannot find the article they originally wished to link to.)

3.) Stop by a few of the other blogs and leave a note of encouragement on the articles you enjoyed. Feel free to mention that you were sent there through this linkup. (To encourage them to link-up again.)

4.) Please link back to The Zippy Zebra. I do not have a special button yet but feel free to use the icon at the top with an embedded link OR a simple text link will do. (If you dont know how please message me and we can walk through it.)
