Disability Blogs

Disability Blogs

Disability blogs that are BY people with disabilities. This goes across the disability spectrum – you’ll see blogs by blind, deaf, physically disabled. It is neuro-diverse.

This is NOT a list of blogs that are about disability, per se; rather, the blogs all have an intersection of disability in common.

This is a small collection of disability blogs, but will hopefully grow as more people add theirs to the list.

Please join, share and visit other’s blogs. And come on over to join the Facebook group, The Federation of Disabled Bloggers, and hashtag your photos on Instagram to the 365 Days with Disability project (the photo project that is by and for the disability community).

  1. Add “Hearing Elmo”. Denise Portis, the author of the blog, is a cochlear-implanted late-deafened lady with Menieres. Like you, Meriah, she is an amazing advocate! Her blog is very real.

    • Sounds great, Kerry (and thanks for the compliment!) – please add it! I’ve set up the list so that everyone can directly add either their favorite blogs by a person with a disability, or their own (if they are a blogger with a disability). Thanks again!

  2. I just emailed Denise at Hearing Elmo as I wasn’t comfortable putting her link on your page without her permission. It’s in the queue, but if you could refrain from posting it until you or I hear back from her, that would be great! Thank you!

  3. Love this list. You can add mine since I am a mom of a child with Down syndrome and severely food allergic kiddo. My blog is not entirely about living with a disability. I just wanted to drop you a line and say how much I enjoy your blog!

    • sorry I meant to say CAN’T I guess I shouldn’t be typing after my glass of wine, oops.

    Thank you so much for this blog and info. I just became disabled three and a half years ago due to a near fatal wreck. Before the wreck I blogged all the time as well as doing other forms of writing. After the wreck I stopped writing period. I was learning how to take on my new life (I am a quad incomplete now) and felt what did I have to offer as a woman in her forties coping with disability. As time has gone on I have the desire to blog about my life and some of the hurdles that has popped up on my new path but have been afraid it would come off as me complaining. I am coming to see that it isn’t complaining but educating the world thanks to the list you gave. Thank you so much. I will be back to give my blog address once I set everything up.

  5. I love your blog, I will pin this. Feel free to add my blog too, i’m talking about blindness and relationships, etc. lifestyle stuff. What theme you use? Are you using WordPress? Thanks!
