This blog was started by me (Stephie2010) on July 21st 2009. It was started in response to some questions I’d been having trouble answering that had been asked by some viewers of my videos. I’d begun making videos a year before this blog’s beginning, and I still make them though I haven’t in a really long time. September 8th 2007 is when I got my account with youtube, and May 20th 2008 is when the first living blind video was posted.
The first goal of this blog is, was, and always will be to answer any questions you may have. They will be answered as long as they aren’t inappropriate. If that happens they will be ignored.
The second goal of this blog is to try and bridge the gap between the blind and sighted communities. This is the same goal I had when I began my video series on Youtube so many years ago. I/we hope to do this in a variety of ways, and we hope that you find them useful in some way.
The third goal is to help blind or visually impaired people. Whether that is through support, telling stories, sharing information we’ve gathered, giving out useful websites and links, or answering questions you might have.
Here’s the schedule for when we plan to post. Note: sometimes we may deviate from this schedule. The reasons for doing this may vary, but rest assured we are doing it on purpose.
Monday: college/ school experience day. Where we tell stories about our college and school experience, share advice or information that we’ve picked up over the years, or answer questions relating to school or college if we can. We also have a couple of series that we’ve started. One is about cooking, and the other is about blind people who have jobs, or other wise inspire other people.
Tuesday: Tech Day. This is the day where I or someone else talks about websites, apps, or other pieces of technology that I or they find interesting or helpful in some way.
Wednesday: Question Day. This is the day set aside to answer questions that you or someone else has asked me/us. We may also use this day to pose questions of our own to you in the hope that you may no the answer. At some point we’ll have a parrent day on Wednesday as well.
Thursday: Travel day. Which is the day when I or someone else will be talking about our experiences with the long white cane, or telling about experiences with our guide dogs. We may even tell stories about guide dogs from the past. We may even give travel tips that we’ve learned from experience.
Friday through Sunday are catch up days. Just in case we miss a day or three. Though, usually we use that time to take a break from writing on this blog.
Remember that this schedule is subject to change any time I or someone else wishes to change it.
