This post is in response to the Bedroom Tag that I’ve been nominated to do by Amanda Gene – thanks Amanda! There isn’t a lot I can say about my bedtime routine particularly, but it’s not something I’ve written about on here before, so I hope you enjoy reading my answers.
Yesterday’s reblog of a guest post went down very well, so here’s another – an interview with me on Amanda Gene’s blog, the first time I’ve been interviewed by another blogger (but already not the last). So do check that out, and Amanda’s blog in general. And in return I’ve also done an interview with Amanda on my blog too, so do give that a read as well. Thank you to Amanda for featuring me! 🙂
P.S. While I’m here, there’s just a week to go until my charity abseil for nystagmus research. So if you can sponsor me it would be very much appreciated, while I try and psyche myself up for the big leap!
Hi Everyone, I got the pleasure of interviewing my friend Glen. He is the fantastic blogger and YouTuber who runs Well Eye Never. Many thanks to Glen for allowing me to interview him and for allowing him to interview me in return. Don’t forget to check out his website 🙂
- What is your name?
In a few days time I’ll be 35 years old.
- Who has inspired you the most in life and your blogging?
My parents also have sight loss like myself, and have always encouraged and supported me to achieve whatever I want to do. At the school for the visually impaired I went to, the teachers there were also very supportive and really helped me to grow in confidence. My friends also mean a lot to me and inspire me, of course. And the blogging community has been so welcoming and supportive of my…

This is a new type of post for me – an interview exchange with another blogger! Amanda Gene came to me with the idea, having interviewed some other bloggers already, and I was of course very flattered and happy to take part!
Amanda has already published her interview with me, so do go and check that out:
I’d love to do more posts like this too. I think it’s a really nice way to learn about other people, for the same reason that tag posts are so enjoyable. Plus it’s very important to support and promote each other in the blogging community, especially as disabled bloggers get overlooked somewhat (which is why I’ve created lists of bloggers who post about sight loss, disability, London & entertainment). So if anybody wants to do an exchange of Q&As like this, feel free to get in touch, either via Facebook or Twitter messages, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyway, here is the interview I did with Amanda. I hope you enjoy it. Do give her a follow if you can, all of her social links are at the end of the post. Thank you so much to Amanda for featuring me on her blog and for answering my questions here as well! She gives great advice on blogging and interacting with disabled people, and it’s really interesting to get an insight into her disability and the things she enjoys.
This Q&A tag is a wonderful creation by Elin at My Blurred World who recognised that, in amongst all of the many blogger tags out there, disabled bloggers didn’t have a tag for themselves. I’m one of the people she nominated to do it, and I’ve also been nominated by The Invisible Vision Project, Amanda Gene and Life Of A Blind Girl, so thank you to all of you! 🙂
So here are my answers, as a post and a video. I hope you enjoy it and find it interesting!
As if nominating me for the Liebster Award wasn’t generous enough, Holly from Life Of A Blind Girl has also nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award twice this year, in January and October, which is very kind indeed, thank you Holly! Do go and check out Holly’s blog, as she publishes lots of great posts about visual impairment, disability awareness and her hobbies and interests.
Update: Since writing this post I’ve also been kindly nominated by Amanda Gene for the same thing, so do go and check her blog out as well.
The Blogger Recognition Award simply requires you to write a bit about your blog and give advice to new bloggers, and then nominate other bloggers to do the same, to share the love and give them some exposure and recognition. So that’s what I’m going to do here. Thanks again to Holly for nominating me!
