What a truly amazing week it has been.. no seriously, truly amazing. I’m a bit overwhelmed. Not just because I’ve been so busy, writing a LOT for people and changing jobs but more so in the support and recognition that I’ve received.

While browsing Facebook, I noticed someone post a link to the Top 30 Facebook Fan Pages by Babble.com and thought, hey.. I have two of them, but there’s no way I’d make it. Perhaps I’ll check to see which pages did make it though.
To my surprise, one of my fan pages did make it! Listed at #24 out of 30, my Autism Understanding and Acceptance page had made the list, and was even #6 in the “best for activism” category.

In a 4 part series on Autism, The Talk on CBS has dedicated each of it’s Friday episodes in the month of April to Autism and on April 8th, focused on the “forgotten parents” of Autism, the dads. This lead to a FollowFriday shout out not only from their Twitter account, but also on television!

I received an email from RNCentral.com mentioning that they created a page listing “50 Blogs you should Bookmark for Autism Awareness Month” and that my blog was included!
Once again, while surfing around, I came across the Babble.com article called “Top 25 Autism Spectrum Blogs” where once again, my blog was listed! Coming in at #21 and #6 in the “best from a dad’s perspective” category… you can see my blog listing here.
Believe me when I say that I’m truly honoured to be recognized but more so to be included among so many other amazing blogs and fan pages. And none of it would be possible without wonderful people supporting me… by reading, commenting, sharing with me… you all have encouraged me to keep this up and keep sharing.
It’s amazing comments on Twitter and Facebook where other parents thank me for sharing my story and advice… positive feedback from people that read this blog means far more to me than any “top x” lists but making those lists is a great indication of just how much of an effect that you all have on me and this blog.
So thank you RNCentral, Babble.com and to you… perhaps something I said one time might have had some sort of impact on your life, however big or small, but your being here and reading makes an impact for me every single day.
