This is the second year in a row where my blogging “birthday” has passed and I haven’t realized it until after the fact. I guess time flies when you’re having fun, right? One year felt like a really big deal – it felt “official” – and now two years feels like it means that I have some real stability and staying power.
There are definitely days where I sit here thinking that I have nothing to say; days when I can’t imagine writing another post because I have no idea what to write about. There are also days where I struggle with the balance of posts – how much do I want to share about my disability, and how much can I share about clothes and makeup and things like that without losing the interest of people who care about disability?
And yet (shocking no one who knows me in real life), I somehow always come up with something to talk about, with something else to say. I really love having this outlet – blogging is as much for letting me have an outlet for my thoughts as it is for other people reading it! I have always loved writing, and blogging has given me a way to explore that in a really fun way.
I also hope, that in some point over the last two years, I’ve helped shed a little more light on what it’s like living with a disability. That I can care about both my need for plastic straws and my need for stylish clothes that fit me well. The issues that come along with living with a disability can often be more societal than medical, and that’s why I think it’s so important for society to understand disability more. There are so many different ways to do that, and I hope my blog does its own small part.
And of course – I’m so grateful and thankful to you for following along and reading. I have loved connecting with you so much! I’m really looking forward to this next year, and to see what it brings.
