My Rockin Disabled Life

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I live with a disability called Spina Bifida and have more physical challenges than most people. The media has wrongly portrayed the disabled community for as long as I can remember and makes us all seem inspirational or depressed. I am on a mission to break all the stigma surrounding disability to help you learn the truth.

    Hi, Sarah! This is good advice. I struggle with promoting my blog. I see some bloggers talking about becoming very successful in just a few months and I don’t know how they do it. Maybe it’s okay if mine grows slowly. Still, it’s much slower than I’d like.

    By the way, I had a bit of a hard time reading your post. The pink background is pretty bright. If you have the time, may I suggest adjusting the theme to make the background a little paler?

      Thank you, yeah it is possible to become a popular blog in just a few months but so incredibly rare and what those bloggers don’t tell you is how much work they put into their blogs! Mine is growing at a slower rate as well but I haven’t been stressing over it and am just enjoying the journey. Thank you for letting me know that my posts were difficult to read because I had no idea and it looks pretty light on my end but I changed the color so I hope that helps!

        Yes, that’s a good point! I don’t have that kind of time for my blog, so I shouldn’t compare myself to people who do.

        The paler pink definitely looks nicer! It’s possible that your monitor doesn’t show colors accurately. I purchased a color-correcting tool for my second monitor. When I look at your blog through my second monitor, it’s readable now!

        I also use a browser extension called “Accessibility Insights for Web.” I’m still figuring out how it works, but it seems to think your site is good now! It does check for things like color contrast.

        Yes I suppose it’s possible but I checked it on two different devices so it should of showed up on at least one. I’ll have to look into these apps to see if it helps!

        That’s odd. It’s also possible that it’s because my eyes are more sensitive than yours. My sensory processing is more sensitive than average. (For example, I hide my face from the TV when a movie has flashing lights because it’s uncomfortable.) Thus, I might find things harder to read when others might be able to manage.

        I also have sensitive eyes because I have epilepsy that is triggered by flashing lights and migraines that can be triggered by bright colors. It’s possible I had the resolution way down on both devices so it seemed lighter than it actually was.

        Oh, interesting! I didn’t know you could adjust the display like that.
