Many people ask me, ‘What’s it like to be a disabled blogger?’ Well, I really don’t think there’s much of a difference between myself and a ‘normal’ blogger. I do think I have an advantage over normal bloggers in the sense that I can mention things that most people never think of mentioning. For example, with technology, disabled people may have certain afflictions that won’t allow them to use the device the same ways an able-bodied person can.
I also get to review products that able-bodied people wouldn’t have a use for. I’ve reviewed adaptive clothing and household helpers that are designed with disabled people in mind. The companies I’ve worked with appreciate my reviews because I represent the audience they are trying to attract.
I enjoy my blog because it helps me connect with companies and let them know how easy their products can be used by a disabled person or if they need to redesign it. I hope I bring a positive outlook and presence to the web and my readers enjoy my content.
