When I realized that my readers are people too

In the beginning of this journey, the blogging journey that is, I spent countless hours trying to establish if I was successful and then what made me successful. I still don’t know the answer the only thing I can I know is people are staying on my site for two minutes or more now.  the one thing I did note when I started this journey was that I would be one in a very small niche.  There are few bloggers who write about their lives with cerebral palsy, often it’s the parents or caregivers doing the blogging. 

Stop caring about the numbers

When I stopped looking at the numbers and started focusing  on better content, I feel I have started to create just that better content. Better content equals more readers equal improved motivation for me to strive to do better still. Do you think I should increase to seven days a week or do you like that I post five or is five itself too much.  I blog because I want to help others and your feedback would help me do you like the new related posts with the images?  How would you suggest I improve this blog? Your feedback is greatly appreciated

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

  1. I love the related posts and I feel like doing several posts in a series helps you to get into more depth about topics that you want to explore or that readers have asked about. It also allows for a deeper and more ongoing discussion of topics or themes. The increase to 5 from 3 days a week was great, I like that I don’t have to wait so long to see what your next post will be. About posting 7 days a week, I would love it if you did but everyone needs a weekend. On the other hand if you want to post every day I will read and comment! :)
