Hi Chris,
As to that this list motivating you to create your blog. I'm very indebted
to you for our discussions over the list about accessible art. A couple of
years back I was asked to adapt some works of art for an art history
course and I was very unsure about the whole matter, what to do etc. 
Through our online discussion I learned a lot. It was a very big help. Got
pointed in the right direction.
So if this list motivated your blog, can only say that it was actually you
who did that. Talk about self generation. What comes around goes around.
