I am dyslexic, but I love reading and writing. My thoughts don’t always get onto the paper or into my laptop text in the way I hear them in my head. I love poetry, meditation, self-healing, cooking, beauty, climbing, sewing and self-improvement materials.
I don’t claim to be an expert in any of these areas, and I know there are a lot of people who know far more than I do.
Having dyslexia and writing for strangers brings some level of anxiety that I want you to understand . My mind has never been able to just focus on one subject. I read well-meant advice given to bloggers to ‘find your niche’ and just blog about that. How can someone like me focus on one thing (my niche)?
One post takes me forever to do and then I have to ask a friend to read it to see if it makes sense and is readable to people who don’t have dyslexia. So, I can’t just write and publish stuff straightaway. It is frustrating and sometimes it makes me really sad.
But onto the positive side now. I’m creative, and I don’t know how to give up blogging, and I don’t want to. So if you find errors in my blog posts it is probably because I couldn’t find anyone to read through them first before I published them. So my apologies in advance. And if you are dyslexic and want to share your experiences go ahead and do it. Don’t be scared. Just give it a go. And if you want to share your experiences here, please feel free.
