I really enjoy reading the blogs. At first I only read the ones I could relate to. However now I find I get something from all of them because even the topics I cannot relate to teach me about things I have little or no experience of and help change my attitude towards those things - for example disabilities I have no experience of.

I was just wondering how people go about getting one posted up on the website. I would love to write about either mental health or driving and how learning to drive changed my life, or maybe both combined. Do I need to have a blog website or can I just send it to Scope for them to consider?

Thanks :)

    I think a guest blog from yourself would be great @66Mustang - & please do include how driving changed your life. You write well, & that's a great start, so just say what matters to you. As Cher says, you have a story to tell, & I look forward to hearing it. You never know who you might help, even if they don't comment, & that in itself makes it a great idea. :)
