More Accessible Blogs

30 Days to a More Accessible Blog is a great series of posts that really will help bloggers make their blogs more accessible to those that may not be able to use many of our blogs. I’ll let the author of the series explain (from his introduction to the series):

‘This series is entitled “30 days to a more accessible weblog”, and it will answer two questions. The first question is “Why should I make my weblog more accessible?” If you do not have a weblog, this series is not for you. The second question is “How can I make my weblog more accessible?” If you are not convinced by the first answer, you will not be interested in the second.

Over the past five days, I have presented character sketches of five people:Jackie, Michael, Bill, Lillian, and Marcus. These people have several things in common:

They all have a combination of physical, mental, and technological disabilities which make it more difficult to use the Internet.

Although fictitious, they all represent real people with disabilities, and they use the Internet in ways that real people with disabilities use the Internet.

They all have difficulty reading your weblog.

Starting Monday, and over the next five weeks, I will present tips that you can immediately apply to your own weblog template to make it more accessible.’

I’d never considered this before – it is well worth the read – interested in your thoughts on the series.
