Why Everyone Should Have A Blog?

Because of your disability have you ever felt limited or just downright left out?  I have found that there is not much in life that doesn’t require some means of adaption on my part, purely because the world was not designed for someone with a disability, we all have something to contribute to this world; but sometimes the barriers of society just get in the way of our contribution.

Why I am glad I grew up in the time I did

In coming up with today’s post I found myself in a reflective space. Looking out my window the snow is softly falling and the forecast later today looks bleak so I am told.  It is this weather that leaves the thought of going out to be an undesired one, and yet I have a strong need: The need for community.

The digital age helps the disabled

[pullquote]I often wonder what my life would be like if I grew up in a different time.  The internet helps to maintain or build a community that I otherwise wouldn’t have. [/pullquote]The digital age has helped be less lonely, less aware of my physical limitation. That isn’t just because of this blog, its facebook, twitter, ability online and the other places online that I frequent.

Why I love blogging and think we all should have a blog

We all have a story worth telling and I love how the blog for me does not require any adaptation to participate it simply require learning and a learning curve and some dedication. But I don’t “look” different nor do I do things differently from the next guy that runs a blog. Blogs are about shared experience and I hope you will do me the honour of sharing my blog with your friends and family and your community online. I feel like this blog is helping to reduce social stigma and without the internet this blog wouldn’t be here.

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
