A blogging agency asked the question: show us your first blog post, and what have you learnt since then? Such a great question!
Since that post, I’ve learnt it’s not about how many people visit my blog a day, but the difference I can make to just one person through sharing an authentic, engaging story on my blog.
So many people have told me they read my blog and now have hope for them or their child, that they’re no longer alone, and that they feel empowered to tell their story. I’ve met some amazing people through sharing my story of living with a rare severe skin condition and visible difference.
Thanks to The Awesome Foundation Melbourne for believing in the Australian Ichthyosis Meet to throw it a $1000 grant, and to all of the individual financial donors and to the companies who have provided products for the goodie bags. I can’t wait to reveal who has come on board!And thanks to the Ichthyosis patients and families for getting involved, helping out and seeing the importance of a social meet.
