tomorrow March 1, 2012. Last year The NFB of Utah launched a new
website, BlindHow.com. This sight has been up for more than six
months during which time we have received over 500 posts with over
160 comments from over 370 members. Thank you to each of you that
have contributed to BlindHow.com. We have had an extremely
successful six plus months and look forward to the continued success
in the upcoming months and years. Whether you have submitted
content, made comments, asked questions, or even just used the
website to obtain information, we thank you.
On March 1, 2012, BlindHow.com will be implementing an exciting
incentive program! The purpose? We want you to visit, sign up, test
drive, make comments, rank content, and become a contributor by
submitting articles, videos and audio files. There are thousands of
resources available on the web, but they are scattered and they take
valuable time to find and sift through. We encourage you to submit
content from the web that you have found enlightening, positive,
and/or helpful. We also welcome original articles, videos, or audio
tutorials. We want and welcome both!
How the contest works:
This contest will be a drawing, so anyone who participates has a
chance to win. Every time you post original content to the website,
we enter your name into the drawing 7 times. Every time you post
information from another source, we enter your name into the drawing
3 times. Every time you make a comment on someone else's post, we
enter your name into the drawing 1 time.
The contest will go from March 1, 2012 to April 15, 2012. Please
content you post or comments you make on BlindHow.com as this will
be the only method used to track participation in the contest.
If you haven't visited us, please check out BlindHow.com and see
what it is all about. BlindHow.com allows for community members to
view and share video, audio, or written tutorials and information on
a myriad of topics regarding blindness and visual impairment.
Topics could include things like, "How do you use an iPhone with
voiceover?" "This is how I put on makeup every day: how do you?"
"How do you mow your lawn?" "This is how I downhill ski."
If you can't find the answer you are looking for, then we want you
to ask! If you have something to share, then become a contributor
today! We know that there are many different ways to do one thing.
For example, I may iron my shirt one way and you another. Knowledge
is power and sharing is caring! You can make a difference.
Our primary goal is to create a positive environment where community
members are willing to ask thoughtful questions and share knowledge
related to blindness and visual impairment that will improve lives,
encourage independence, and increase self-confidence.
To all, best of wishes.
The BlindHow Team
P.S. Please remember to let us know of any way we can improve your
