Who Am I? And, Revised Guidelines for Writers

Posted on 24 July 2008. Filed under: Call for Papers, Introduction to "We Can Do" | Tags: , |

If you have ever been curious to learn more about the person behind the We Can Do blog, then I have posted a new permanent page entitled “Who Am I?” that is now available from the top navigation bar. In this page, I talk a bit about myself and what motivates me to keep up with this blog month after month. Follow the link to:


If you were thinking of submitting something to We Can Do for possible publication, then I have tweaked the Writing Guidelines. For one thing, I changed the title from “Wish List for Written Materials and Resources” to “Guidelines for Writers” (but the URL link is currently still the same as it was before). Also, I added a few more criteria regarding things such as preferred word-length; languages other than English; use of tables and graphics; etc. Follow the link to:


I know I still owe some emails to people who have already submitted materials for consideration. I apologize. We Can Do is a volunteer project I do in what limited free time I have, so I am frequently behind with my email. Feel free to send me a follow-up reminder to ashettle (at) patriot.net if you fear I’ve forgotten you.

In a few minutes, a post will be going up about the one-year anniversary of this blog: as of this writing (7:40 pm Washington DC time) We Can Do will be exactly one year old in just 1.5 hours from now.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
