My Responsibility As A Blogger

When I began this blog I did it out of boredom. I did it out of personal need; and I did it out of a want I had, that want was to shape a community. I was unsatisfied in finding someone similar in age with cerebral palsy that blogged that proved impossible.

I felt that there were a lot of parents of children in various age brackets that were blogging and that my story could be a voice, maybe even a strong one to give them a sense of what the future may hold.  I had no idea that it would sky-rocket into what it is today. I have a set of core beliefs that I try to infuse each post with honesty and integrity.

The Human Experience

I try to make my blog informative, anecdotal and engaging. Blogging for me is about human experience I am keenly aware of my human readers and when I write I attempt to think of each post as a letter to a long-lost friend,

I hold myself to a high internal responsibility and in doing so I have some questions I wish to ask:

Reader Feedback

  • Am I posting often enough or too often or is it just right?
  • Do you have any post ideas?
  • Any posts you would like to me to expand on?
  • Do you have any feedback about how I can continue to remove the social barriers one post at a time?

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

    Hi Laura

    You are posting just right. Every 2 to 3 days is perfect for me.
    The only idea for posts I can think of is maybe more about you and the disability AND mix it with humor. Those of us with these challenges have a tendency to be so darn serious when we talk about it. (I do it too.)
    Remove the social barriers one post at a time – - I have one suggestion but you could do it to all of your posts. Change the font of the body of the post to Ariel. I don’t have problems reading your posts but I know a few people online that are legally blind but still can read if there aren’t many curls and swirls.

    You write about being aware of your human readers. Are there other kinds of readers and where can I meet them?
