My blog started because I wanted to spread the word about Cushing’s syndrome, however the blog took on a life of it’s own, explaining all of my illnesses as invisible ones. I discovered I had a lot to say. I wrote “page” after “page” of content, but those were not blog posts, once I figured out how to actually blog, I had a day to day job to do that gave me a purpose. I now blog for the purpose, it makes me feel good to communicate with people that actually read what I have to say, whether it be about invisible illnesses or day to day life. I feel like I have a job again and that makes me feel less than useless. I needed this blog.
My advice to new bloggers: 1) Let the blog take you where it takes you, and 2) seek out bloggers to follow that have similar interests.
