Nowadays, blogs have become a source of information, entertainment and quite often, a source of help and guidance.
We have gathered for you in this post a selection of blogs about disability which could serve you as a source of inspiration, motivation and support. Their main characters connect with the reader through their stories and show the world that everything is possible in spite of their difficulties.
Surfing the network, we found several types of blogs about disability: associations’ blogs, personal blogs in which their writers tell their own personal story and media blogs specifically focused on this topic.
Let’s check some of them:
Viajeros silleros (Travelling wheelchair riders)
In this blog several disabled people write about their trips and experiences across Spain. In this way, they encourage other wheelchair users to travel and inform about accessible places.
Raúl Martínez shares his life and experiences as wheelchair user. This is a very inspiring blog to encourage disabled people not to surrender upon all odds.
Martyn Sibley has spinal muscular atrophy and shares with us his daily life in a very optimistic way. He is the director of Disability Horizons and the author of ‘Everything is Possible’.
In his blog, he writes about him driving his own adapted car, running his own business, about him flying in a plane, and about the fact that he has done ski and scuba diving, etc.
This blog deals with issues related to including disabled people in the university. Interesting pieces of news, comments and the opinion of other disabled students, researchers, professors, volunteers and any other interested person are published.
John Morris suffered a car accident that tied him to a wheelchair for good but this was not reason enough for him to lose his will to travel. He decided to start this blog as a place in which he could share some advice. Now, Wheelchair Travel has grown to become a varied worldwide readers and writers community.
All of them write about the places they have visited and their experiences from the seat of their wheelchair.
