the artistic side of blogging

I had no idea when I started blogging that it would mean anything to anyone, except me! As of today I have reached 3,000 hits on lifeofthedifferentlyabled.com since November 22, (not to mention the 15,000+ hits I received in the 11 months that it wasn’t self hosted!) This post strives to outline the various impacts I have noticed in my life since I started this hobby.

I had no idea the impact of the written word
Admittedly I didn’t think anyone would read this but when I got my first email from a mom of a young boy with cerebral palsy; and I realized that this wasn’t about me or well solely for me, that others were gaining as much value reading this, as I was from writing it.
The feelings of being able to give back without a lot of effort on my part
it’s nice to know that with a few minutes of my time, my words reach a vast global audience. This is just an added bonus, and it helps me on days like today when I am struggling to come up with fresh new content.
knowing that I am not alone that others have been through or are going through the same
I just want you all to know, that I find great comfort in the shared experiences of this blog; I feel like it makes those days when you’re grumpy due to tighter than normal muscles the act of writing at the very least makes such days manageable!

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

    I know you had a Google calendar in the past.
