No two ways around it; website development for people with disabilities – knowing how to set up your own website – is a form of freedom.
You can create your own portfolio, online resume – you can showcase your talent, present your opinions and make money. For us especially in the disability community, it is a means of disability empowerment. This is because (as I expand on in this post), if you can build your own site, you are building your own platform. When you have your own platform, you can sell, say, advocate, create and commune whatever you want.
For us, rather than needing to seek permission from an agency or hope our spoons will last through an interview, we can actually create a site whereby we can sell what we make, we can connect with others, work online, generate income.
Start Your Own Blog!
I’ve been blogging for over 10 years now (gasp!) and want to share some of the things I’ve learned along the way. That includes how to set it up, how to understand WordPress, what ads and sponsored posts mean and how to make money from it all if that’s what you want. Plugins. Social media. How to tap into all of it.
Below are all of the posts that I’ve written about wordpress, website development and starting your own blog.
