Celebrating Diversity Amongst Bloggers — Post 6

Recently I’ve been invited to do a number of interviews with other bloggers, which has been very flattering. I’ve promoted them on social media and in my favourites posts, and linked to them on my blogger collaborations page, but it occurs to me that I should reblog them as well, to help draw attention to them and give a bit more promotion to the lovely bloggers in question.

So this is the first post, one in a series running on Kel’s wonderful blog Consider Yourself Warned. Check out all the posts in his “Celebrating Diversity Amongst Bloggers” series, as there are a great mix of people featured. Thank you Kel! 🙂

Blogger Interview – Amanda Gene

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:

An Interview With Glen

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 welleyenever@icloud.com

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.

July 2018 Favourites

Time for another monthly favourites post and video, looking back at July. Things were very busy and successful on the blog and social media this month, I enjoyed some fun social events, museum visits and other entertainment, and I even got a bit sporty for once, all while enjoying the sweltering heatwave. So it was a pretty good month, and I hope you enjoy my review of it.

And if you do enjoy reading about the things I get up to, I would love it if you would consider sponsoring my charity abseil in September. That would mean a lot to me. A massive thank you to my amazing sponsors so far! I’ll keep updating that shoutouts page as donations come in, including links for fellow bloggers, so do chip in if you want a mention. You’ll also get mentions in my videos as well, as a couple of people have done in this case. Quite a few people have donated since I filmed the video last week!

Yoocan Do It

“My impairment’s just a dropped stitch in life’s rich tapestry.
I’m successful, independent, it’s no barrier to me.”

I’m rather proud of that motto, which I came up with this week. It’s adapted from a quote in my favourite sitcom (Only Fools And Horses). Del Boy and Rodney are trapped in a lift, with Rodney understandably distraught about his wife Cassandra’s miscarriage, and Del Boy tells him “it’s just a dropped stitch in life’s tapestry”. It’s a line that’s stuck with me ever since for some reason, I just think it’s lovely.

I created the quote to go with a guest post this week, which has had a massive reaction, way beyond what I could have expected. So I wanted to do a post to explain it and give it a bit of a plug, especially for those who haven’t seen it yet.

February 2018 Favourites

Well, what a way to start a new month, with snow all over the place! Winter has seemed very reluctant to let Spring take over, but hopefully things will warm up in the coming weeks now.

And the cold weather didn’t stopped February from being an eventful month. Following on from my January 2018 Favourites, it’s now time to look through what I’ve been enjoying in February. And even though it’s the shortest month, I seem to have packed quite a bit in! So I hope you enjoy this post and video for February.

2017 Review – My First Year In London

As I mentioned in a recent blog post, this Christmas marked my first anniversary of moving to London, and 2017 has been an amazing year.

I said it in that post, but it’s worth saying again – thank you so much to everyone I’ve met and interacted with during the year, whether it be in person or online. By reading, liking and sharing my content, leaving comments, asking questions, sending me private messages and emails, giving me opportunities for guest posts and public talks, and even meeting up in person, you’ve helped to make this year a very special one for me. Especially Fashioneyesta, Aniridia Network UK, Nystagmus Network, East London Vision, South East London Vision, Thinking Bob, VocalEyes, RNIB, Scope, Life Of A Blind Girl, My Blurred World, Luke Sam Sowden and All The Stations, but also everyone else that I’ve had any kind of contact with during the year.

Everyone has been very positive and supportive, and your involvement has enabled me to start this new chapter in my life with confidence and comfort, and fun and friendship. And for that I’ll always be very grateful. 2017 will forever be one of the most significant and happy of my life, nothing will take that away. I hope everyone else has had a good 2017 too, and I hope 2018 is a very prosperous and Happy New Year for you!

So I wanted to do an overview post, running through the things I’ve been up to in the busiest year of my life to date. It’ll give you a good sense of how things developed, and will allow you to check out any blog posts or videos you may have missed if you only found me relatively recently. You can also check out a comprehensive list of places I’ve visited on my Out & About Adventure page at any time. I also recommend you look back through my Youtube videos, especially my London videos and disability videos as there’s no way I can list everything here. And there are loads of Instagram photos you can enjoy as well. So I hope you enjoy my little journey down a very busy memory lane!

The Best Festivals For Accessibility | AD

This advertisement post has been produced in collaboration with Ability Superstore. I have not been paid to feature this article, but I was invited to write a guest post in return for their blog, discussing my sight loss and self-confidence. So please do check that out as well.

I am very selective about the content that I feature, but I have approved this article because I enjoy music and love going out and about, and I feel it contains a lot of useful information for my readers. So I hope you find it interesting.


Festival season is fast approaching and it’s an experience that no one should miss out on, regardless of age or ability. We often think of festivals as unfriendly places for people with disabilities – all that mud, uneven ground and strobe lighting. But here are a selection of festivals and charities which prove that myth wrong, and help people with disabilities enjoy the best festivals that the UK has to offer.
