If you are interested in starting a web blog, there are different blogging engines — such as Blogger and WordPress. I use WordPress.com. In my experience, I have found the WordPress staff to be both helpful and attentive. WordPress.com also has a forum where you can find answers to your questions and where you can create community.
If I can be of assistance in starting a web log with WordPress.com, please let me know.
In the event that creating a web site or starting a web log is not something you want to do — to create community — there are many other ways to create community. My encouragement to you would be to use your passions — through your gifts, talents and abilities in ways that work for you. And as you use your gifts, talents, and abilities — in ways that work for you — remember that you do not have to be anyone but you.

Be vulnerable, take the risks and share who you are with individuals living with brain injuries. As you reach out to your brothers and sisters, your courage will help our brothers and sisters to have courage. As you use your passions — through your gifts, talents and abilities — you will encourage your brothers and sisters to use their passions — through their gifts, talents and abilities.
As we use our passions — through our gifts, talents and abilities — we will feed one another. As we feed one another no one will go hungry. As we share who we are — who we really are — we give other individuals living with brain injuries the permission to be who they really are. And in the process, we give our brothers and sisters the permission to heal.
And as we heal, we create community.
