Actually Autistic Blogs List

For example, type “Atypical Netflix” or “Identity First” into the search bar to find out how Autistic people feel regarding the Netflix series “Atypical” or the issue of Identity-First vs. Person-First Language.

  4. Browse the alphabetical listing for appealing blog names.
  5. Find bloggers…

This is the locomotive that pulled the Jacobite train when I travelled it.

The January picture features the Skye Bridge

This shot was taken on the journey from Plockton to Applecross – it was nominated by Oglach, who blogs at

This classic stone bridge can be seen on the Isle of Skye. 

One of the minority of pictures in this calendar that was not taken in Scotland.

Back to Scotland…
