What makes my blog successful or not?

This is a question I know I have posted before but I would like to share why I think it is: when this blog was founded I was bored on a winter’s day. I literally

knew nothing about blogging aside from the fact that it was an online journal of sorts.

What I wanted from my blog

By sharing my life on lifeofthedifferentlyabled I wanted to share one person’s story who lives on the spectrum of the umbrella term of Cerebral Palsy. I thought at first I would put it out there on a small scale but since its start December 2009 we have had over 9000 hits thanks for making this possible.

I would like to know?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook

    The way you keep us and yourself on your toes

    (and in balance).

    The writing: not too much and not too little.

    The variety of topics which you cover.

    The mind-mapping and the other geekish stuff!

    The way you use social media.

    9,100 hits. That must have been surprising to you back in December!

    New here – found your blog through the Disability Fair on Dave’s blog.

    My son has what the docs consider CP. I like to get a perspective from somebody who lives with it, since he is non-verbal.

    Can’t wait to see more!

    Steph and Christopher :P

    This blog you can gain so much information on articles, anything really. You learn so much about people with CP and how they can do anything that people without a disability can do. Taking the time to make a blog on a day-to-day basis and sharing the world how you have overcome obstacles. I think that’s awesome when you & people reach out beyond the stars.
    The thing that keeps me coming back to the blog is:
    - It’s an exciting stuff (it’s like what are you going to write next?)
    - You share what is in your heart
    - When you write it’s a whole other world (your writing is like a waterfall. Meaning it goes with the flow and it’s so peaceful when you write. It’s a wonderful gift that you have.

    A successful blogger has at least 30 coherent things to say to the average person per month (a talent I wish I had myself LOL :D ) #smilesandhugs

      On the other hand, the intelligent things which can be said on Twitter are virtually infinite.

      (If you don’t want the whale on the beach …)
