My blog isn’t coming to a close, but it’s time to tone it down – at least for a while, anyway. Weekly updates have taken up my time, and right now, there’s other work for me to complete.
The truth is that this blog isn’t hugely popular. It has gained some attention though, and after working on it for over a year, I hope people who have noticed it appreciate my efforts. Plus, if you’re a fan, then don’t worry – it’s not going in the trash.
Over the past two or three months, I’ve continued to post weekly updates, although reviews of my own life have occurred more often in my blog than usual. It’s easier to tell people about this because I’ve got nearly all the information I need already stored in my head.
The Blog’s New Focus
Now, I don’t want to appear self-obsessed. I know that telling people about my life isn’t everything they wish to read that has relations to epilepsy. But if you look into my archives, you’ll find I’ve already written 60+ posts that should include quite a lot of advice and info.
Everybody learns more as life continues and I’ll spread the word about any information I pick up. I’m looking forward to learning more about other disabilities too. As well as that, many other websites and blogs can provide advice and information about epilepsy.
So right now, I’m going to continue this blog, but generally just tell people about my epilepsy-related lifestyle as I take on a new project with open arms.
Time to take Action
Building a charity from its starting point is going to be a challenge, but a challenge I’m happy to take on. I am unemployed, but that’s not a big problem in my eyes. I’ll keep looking for part-time work. I believe that what goes around comes around. I believe the efforts I make will keep me financially secure enough for the time being.
For now, it’s best to label and treat Disability Central as a project alone. I only want to advertise locally to set up a few meeting groups in my regional area. I’ll then discuss the issues for people with a disability with those that arrive.
Just getting the website up and running has been difficult and took up a lot of my time. I’m sorry it’s still not up and running from the URL I mentioned. But one thing I’ve said from the start is that I don’t want to dive in at the deep end with this charity. I want to start small, and then expand. I’m wondering whether having a decent, professional looking charity website is too much work done before I’ve even had the first group meeting.
It will develop. I’ve had a chat with some very friendly and insightful people, and they’ve given me some good advice. They like my idea, and they like the name of it too. I’ll keep you updated on what happens from now.
