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, VocalEyesRNIB, 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!

Guest Post – The Best Festivals For Accessibility

This is the first guest post I’ve ever had on this blog. And it doesn’t have to be the last – if any of my blogging friends would like to collaborate on something, especially those that I already follow and enjoy, then I’m open to ideas.

This post is from the Ability Superstore Blog, where they regularly post useful advice and links for disabled people on a variety of topics – in this case talking about accessibility at music festivals. I love music and going out and about, so this is a perfect topic for me.

This is being posted at the same time as a guest post by me on their site. It’s all about how I’ve grown in confidence over the years, so please go and check it out!

Thank you so much to Natalie for inviting me to do that, and for giving me permission to reproduce her post below in return. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
