Is Blogging shaping the future of the disability industry? How do you make an impact? And where do you start?
Find out this and more, as our panellists discuss the What's, the Whys and the Hows of Disability Blogging.
Pippa is a writer and digital marketer from Yorkshire, who blogs about chronic illness and independent living at Life Of Pippa. She has a particular interest in accessible education and employment, and wants people to know that you don’t have to ‘defy’ your condition in order to be successful.
The media will try and tell you that life should progress along a set path, particularly when you’re ill: non-disabled people seemingly love to hear stories of those struggling with long-term illness ‘overcoming’ their ‘limitations’. In reality, the path is rarely this linear, particularly when you’re dealing with a fluctuating condition. Pippa hopes to be able to provide practical insight and advice, always with touch of humour, to show that there’s nobody’s path to follow but your own.
Pippa also enjoys books and theatre, and can often be found in her natural habitat: wearing pyjamas and drinking copious amounts of tea.
