A new blog post

Hi there!

I haven’t written in a while. I have had many thoughts of blog posts (and have many drafts hanging around) but I haven’t been able to sit down and write as it has seemed like such a large undertaking. I have been comparing the length of my posts to other (excellent) blogs by autistic people and know that mine come up short. So I stopped writing all together.

Now I have analysed my actions, I realise that I am going to have to swallow my pride and unrealistic expectation to be ‘The-Best-Autistic-Blogger_EVER’ (!) and accept that my blogging is going to be (like myself) direct and concise!

So that’s all folks.

Until next time…!

  1. I’ve not previously felt compelled to comment on a blog before. I read so much across a wide range of media that I couldn’t possibly comment on everything. But having seen your latest blog post I do want to say that I have gained an enormous amount from reading your blog posts. I don’t know how you would measure and define ‘best blogger ever’. I’d hazard that there is no such thing – you could positively and unknowingly enhance and enrich the life of one person through your blog or knowingly gain a zillion transient followers. Only you can say which one you would value most. But for me I have been enriched by your past blog posts for their honesty, insight, emotion and realism. I’m only now slightly hesitant that you might now try to do things differently to be like others ‘successful’ bloggers. I think you are better as you. In fact, your blogs seem to be about your journey finding yourself. And I think you were doing just fine. Thanks for your blogs.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! I really value it. I think what I meant to say (although not very coherently) is that I want to blog in a way that’s true for me and that best reflects my character. Thank you for valuing that too ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I’m always pressuring myself to write long blog posts. And unfortunately, like you, it usually ends up meaning that I’ve got a whole load sitting in draft, and very little published. I end up overthinking them and stressing myself out.

    Blog in a way that’s true to you. Damn right. I need to find a way to do the same. I’m very verbose and never concise, but I need to find some kind of happy medium to enable to me to actually get stuff out there!

    For what it’s worth, I think your posts have always been fab.

  3. Yes, I have the same problem! I am reading other autistic people’s posts and they seem so knowledgeable and long.
    I also sometimes don’t have energy to write. Keep going in your style!
    Be the best you, you can be.
