Hi I'm Kim, I write the blog crippledscholar. Thank you for visiting my page and considering supporting my work. In addition to blogging I am also a PhD student in Critical Disability Studies.

I blog about disability. Focusing on disability in the media, disability rights, cultural commentary and personal essays. I even one time published an awesome guest post (I'd love to have more of those and to be able to pay the people who write them).

I am primarily starting this patreon in the hopes of being able to make my blog more accessible. I currently do not have the option to add accessibility controls like changing the font size and colour contrast. I have had mixed responses to my current visuals. Some people don't like it (which I've tried to control for by cross posting my stuff on Medium for an alternate option) while others appreciate it. Accessbility is alas not a one size fits all issue. So ideally I would like to add the capability for users to set their own preferences.

In order to offer this I need to upgrade my Wordpress.com account. I cannot afford to do this at present and need to ensure I am not only able to pay for the initial upgrade but also keep covering the annual fees.

Any funds that I receive that exceed my lowest goal will go towards continuing to deliver quality content and supporting me through my PhD.

Unfortunately, a this time I cannot currently offer any other reward than my undying gratitude. Though it remains to be seen if particularly generous people can buy their way into being my favourite person.

Thank you again for considering supporting my work. I truly appreciate your interest in my work.
