I tried my hand at blogging once a few years ago and it basically flopped. I keep a private blog over at LiveJournal, and update this blog on occasion, but I found writing about what I often feel are private emotions surrounding diabetes (even though I know everyone has them) just didn’t work for me.
Over the past few years, however, I’ve become increasingly interested in diabetes product design, especially surrounding accessibility for people with disabilities. I’ve become so interested that I am seriously thinking of a career switch … or, at least, trying to steer my career in the direction of educational technology and disability, since my “career” as it is has barely gotten started!
So, as a result I’ve launched a new blog dealing with diabetes products and visual impairment. It’s called Invisible Minority, and unlike my other blog I’ve planned out several posts already so that I’ll have something to post even if I’m not in the mood. I’m hoping that people find it interesting enough that it develops a readership, but even if it doesn’t I feel like this blog is off to a much better and more focused start than my last attempt was.
