Carnival of MS Bloggers #130

Welcome to the Carnival of MS Bloggers, a bi-weekly compendium of thoughts and experiences shared by those living with multiple sclerosis.

Celebrating Five Years of the Carnival of MS Bloggers!!  Happy New Year!

My goodness, time has flown by during these past five years. From the very beginning, the Carnival arose from my passion for helping patients, for spreading awareness of MS, and for connecting the MS community.  I have been the sole force behind publishing the Carnival every other week.

As you may have noticed, the frequency of the Carnival has become irregular as of late.  Part of that was due to the wedding in October and part has been due to the increase in my personal advocacy work which has resulted in the decrease of my time to read the more than 600+ MS blogs which exist.

I need your help.  Keep sending links to your favorite recent posts.  If you find a gem of a post on another blog, please bring it to my attention.  Help me to continue publishing the Carnival and strengthening the community.  Post links on your blog to the Carnival (and to Brass and Ivory).  Please advertise this service and help spread the word.  Thank you!!

This concludes the 130th edition of the Carnival.  The next Carnival of MS Bloggers will be hosted here on January 17, 2013. Please remember to submit a post (via email) from your blog of which you are particularly proud, or which you simply want to share, by noon on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.


  1. It has been a tremendous service. Thank you, thank you!

  2. Congratulations, Lisa, on a job more than well done. We, the MS community, owe you so much - love, respect and endless friendship. Great job, my friend.
