Contributing to Ankylose This!

We interrupt this blog for a recruitment ad.

Ankylose This! is a group blog about living with ankylosing spondylitis. I'm inviting bloggers with ankylosing spondylitis to join and contribute to this blog. Membership is limited to ankylosing spondylitis sufferers: this is about our disease, our pain, our experience. It's probably better if you have an existing blog, but it's not strictly necessary. To join, contact me using this form and I'll send you an invitation through the Blogger system.

Anything to do with ankylosing spondylitis is appropriate subject matter for a post: the latest news about the drugs we use; people with ankylosing spondylitis in the media; links; personal experiences. Venting about the pain is definitely okay, so long as it doesn't go overboard. This blog is public; be mindful of your audience, and the fact that your audience could include anyone.

New members may want to introduce themselves and tell us how they were diagnosed and where their disease and treatment are right now; see my and Richard's posts as examples. It's not required, though.

I've applied a Creative Commons licence to this blog: it allows copying and distribution of the text contained in this blog so long as the authors are given credit, the distribution is not for commercial purposes, and no alterations can be made. Let me know if you want to contribute but have concerns about the terms of this licence.

Comments are welcome from anyone -- including the healthy! -- though Blogger registration is required in order to post a comment. (I've decided that talking about our disease is too personal and sensitive to allow for anonymous drive-by commenting, though you may disagree.) Contributors should definitely post comments all over each other's entries.

Update 17-Jan-05: I want to clarify that in order to comment on a post here, you only need to have a Blogger account -- you don't need to e-mail me for that, just sign up at Blogger. To make a new post, though, you need to sign up with us.
