The Big Top Ten
This is Lisa writing to you today, and I just wanted to take a moment before getting into the heart of this week’s post. I’ve been blogging for BlindAlive roughly every other week since December of 2014. It has been my privilege to share stories, suggestions, and information with you. I have been the beneficiary of many of your kind words, and I wanted to express both my appreciation, and my hope that our paths will cross often.
Mel will be bringing you the last blog post, at least for now. This is an excellent time to reflect on the blog and to have some fun. For the past few years, we have brought you the top ten posts from that calendar year. However, this year, we are bringing you the top ten posts of all time.
What struck me is that there’s a recurring theme that runs through all the posts, and that is the quest for knowledge by our readers.
More of you read about Exercise Programs for People with Glaucoma than any other topic.
I remember the developers of a popular fitness app with excellent accessibility support being asked How do Blind People Exercise? This apparently is a popular question, because many of you came to that post looking for answers.
Those with Diabetic Retinopathy also found information in a post tailored specifically to their needs.
Questions abounded regarding the Importance of a Yoga Mat, and you were able to find information you needed to make the best choices for you.
If you want to start your day on the right side of the bed, you could also find information on the blog about a Good Morning Stretch.
I suspect that many curious sighted people found their way to the post, Is it Boring Being Blind, as, likely, did some of our blind readers as well.
I clearly remember when Mel wrote her post: My Claws are Out. The empathy and sharing brought about by that post was phenomenal!
Many of us love our apps, and we received much positive feedback about an Accessible Meditation App.
Finally, Seven Tips for Better Posture in Just One Minute a Day rounds out our top ten.
We hope that not only will you continue to put into practice what you have learned, but that you will share that knowledge with others.
All the best wishes to each and every one for a wonderful 2019 and beyond!
