A Little Tribute To Fellow Disability Blogger Elizabeth McClung #BADD2013

May 1, 2013

Readers, it is with shock and sadness that I have just found out that disability blogger Elizabeth McClung died on Monday, April 29th.

When I started Same Difference almost 6 years ago, Screw Bronze was one of my favourite fellow disability blogs to read and one I regularly kept up with. Elizabeth was a disability blogger I admired, since she had ‘got there first’ and ‘been there longer.’

I sadly lost touch with Screw Bronze over the years, as the disability blogging community in the UK grew, but I always remembered it and Elizabeth with affection.

Screw Bronze has always had a place on the Same Difference blogroll. The best tribute I am able to give to Elizabeth is that it will forever stay there.

Elizabeth was a regular contributor to Blogging Against Disablism Day, which just happens to be today. So it seems somehow appropriate that we, who ‘met’ her through her blogging, heard the very sad news of her death on this day.

Our fellow disability blogger Goldfish, who runs BADD each year, has dedicated this year’s event to Elizabeth’s memory. I’m sure I speak for a lot of my fellow bloggers when I say that my thoughts today are with all who knew Elizabeth offline, and all who gained something from following her life through Screw Bronze.
