I have been doing a bit of searching around and checking out other blogs. There are loads and loads of people posting about their experiences of autism and aspergers syndrome, but not so many sharing their experiences as visually impaired people or of bringing up visually impaired children.
I started to wonder why this might be. Is it that visually impaired people don’t find it easy to blog? Is it that visual impairment isn’t that interesting? Is it that there is nothing to blog about because everything goes so smoothly without any hitches or ‘funny’ moments?
Well I don’t believe any of this is true. Perhaps there really are loads of people out there blogging away and I just haven’t found them. So, I will just have to fly the flag and share my stories in the hope that others find them interesting and useful.
O said ‘hello’.
On that note tomorrow should be an interesting experience. We are going to try live tweeting from our journey up to the Lake District for the Channel 4 news ‘No Go Britain’ campaign. Great idea, but I’m not sure about the practicalities of trying to see to tweet on the go as well as guiding D, supervising 2 kids and organising the luggage between us. Negotiating the stations will probably be the easy part!- (hope i haven’t tempted fate with that one!
Thanks for reading and hope to do a few updates over the next few days, but don’t find it so easy to do using the phone.
