Announcing the Topic for Disability Blog Carnival #53: POT LUCK

The latest Disability Blog Carnival is up at DCB 52: Things That Are Therapeutic. There are a lot of great posts, so check it out!

I am hosting the next carnival, and I want to announce the topic: Pot Luck. Thanks, yanub (of Yet Another Never Updated Blog), for your feedback that a broader topic might invite more participants. And the crazy holiday season is over, so I’m sure you all have your blogging caps on! You can submit any kind of post you want for this one. Hopefully it'll open up a lot of great discussions, too!

Submit your posts for the broadest topic of all, Pot Luck, by February 9 for the February 12 carnival! I look forward to reading all your great posts and hosting the carnival—it’ll be my first one! :) I hope it'll be a good one. As yanub said, “When everyone brings their favorite dish, no one goes away hungry!”

Late addition:
A few people have indicated that they aren't sure what "pot luck" means. Maybe it's an American thing??? So, here's a definition from

pot⋅luck –noun
1. food or a meal that happens to be available without special preparation or purchase: to take potluck with a friend.
2. Also called potluck supper, potluck dinner, potluck lunch. a meal, esp. for a large group, to which participants bring various foods to be shared.
3. whatever is available or comes one's way: With fluctuating interest rates, homebuyers are learning to take potluck with the banks.

Basically, this carnival includes whatever you have, whatever you want to submit, anything goes!
