Well we have been busy this last month. I have always enjoyed blogging about disability issues and over the years many websites and magazines have featured my articles. This Summer has been particularly exciting with guest appearances ion a whole batch of top websites. I was especially excited to have my articles published in Able Magazine which is the largest site/magazine for disabled living. I even managed to get a podcast interview with Claire Foxton who runs their social media operation. They published 2 of my blog pieces recently: One about Autistic singles and further post about dating with a colostomy bag which is a topic that doesn’t get anywhere near enough coverage.
I was also published by independentliving site where I discussed the problems of dating after a spinal injury. Their website fascinates me, there is just so much good information about adaptive living and today I interviewed their founder Frances Leckie about the site and how it functions. It has been around for more than 20 years so it is a pioneer in the disability market. Another hugely influential American website goodmenproject.com published a version of my spinal injury article which brings disabilitymatch to an even larger audience.
So why do I spend so much time blogging for different website? Well, in this crowded online world sites like disabilitymatch have to stand out from the crowd and develop a presence beyond their own 4 walls. We are without doubt the largest of the uK disabilitydating sites and much of that comes from blogging and maintaining a strong social media presence. We have always tweeted @disabilitymatch and now we are doing more on instagram @disabilitymatch and of course our facebook page facebook.com/disabilitymatch. That way we can stay in contacted with our members and the wider uK disability community.
