When I began blogging I was seeking to find my place in the online world – to find my voice. Sure I can write, but can’t anyone? When I realized that it wasn’t solely about my joy and ability to write and more about the message behind the words, that’s when my blog started to climb up the ranks of the search engines.
My Words Can Impact the World
When I realized that my words, and stories may help others who are younger than I; and their family better understand life with Cerebral Palsy, that is when I truly began to feel fulfilled personally by what I was doing on my blog. I write with the intent to give insight into my own life, in hopes that it will help others navigate their own journey.
I got lucky in that the niche in which my blog falls into, is relatively small, meaning that there is not a lot of bloggers that write from the perspective of living life with Cerebral Palsy. There is however, a lot of parents who write about life with a child who has Cerebral Palsy, and for that matter a lot of professionals who write about Cerebral Palsy.
But when I started there was only a handful of bloggers who have Cerebral Palsy and write about how life on a day-to-day basis impacts them. I am happy I can fill a void that will in turn hopefully help others better understand Cerebral Palsy, simply by sharing my personal experiences.
