I Blog for the Love of the Craft

People ask me on occasion how it is that I manage to keep up with my blog, in other words, how is it that I write five days a week. The answer is simple, I write for the sheer love of it. I think it is wonderful that others benefit. But, I do it for the sheer love, in the hopes that my words help others who have an interest in cerebral palsy and living with it. Yes, of course my views and opinions are uniquely my own, but when I started I didn’t realize one thing. It took me years to realize just how humbling this blogging thing can be. I have formed many virtual relationships over the last couple of years, that of Ashley Denby or Jo and Monkey Boy, just to name a couple. When I saw the human side of blogging that is truly when my blog took off.

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.
