Hi there, I'm a journalism student at MMU and currently working on writing a article about confidence and inspiration for people with a disability. I just want to know a few opinions about how people feel about bloggers with a disability trying to inspire people to be more confident about themselves. Nothing will be published, let me know what you guys think! Thank you :)

    Hi @rabiaak welcome to the community! 

    @Sam_Scope, @Pippa_Scope and myself are bloggers. 

    I don't write in the hope to inspire others, instead my aim is to share my story and to raise awareness. I write about how I have coped with various emotions with what I have been through and if that helps another person to realise they are not alone then brilliant!

    Overall, i don't think it's because we want to inspire others but we do want to support each other ?

    Couldn't have put it better myself, @Ami2301!

    If you inspire people along the way that's great, but it's definitely never been my intention/ primary purpose for blogging. Best of luck with your research!

    I agree, it's not about inspiring but talking about my life in the hope of creating more awareness and letting others in a similar situation that they arent alone. Often it is also just very cathartic for me to write it all down :)

    Thanks for the responses! Just wanted to ask opinions on the fashion blogger Sophie Bradbury Cox on Instagram. She is promoting body diversity in the fashion world especially women with a disability! Let me know your thoughts, thank you :smiley:
