Blogging While Dyslexic

Posted By on September 16, 2009

The other day I received an interesting e-mail, inquiring into my motivations behind blogging. The person who wrote the e-mail seemed to hold a very good understanding that it is a very difficult task for a dyslexic to open up to the world in writing. After careful consideration about this e-mail, IT became one of the things I wanted to write about. The reasons I decided to blog are not unique to me they are probably similar to the same reason most people in the world decide to open himself up to public inspection and possible ridicule. I’ve chosen to lists the reasons to block in order of importance below.

  1. The most important reason I blog, is the slim hope that somebody out there with dyslexia will read this blog and find some kind of hope. In knowing that there are other people out there who have been through the same difficulties same criticisms and ridicule and have made it.
  2. One of the most difficult task for a dyslexic, is communication through the written form, blogging gives me the opportunity to improve my writing skills.
  3. It is definitely a release for all of the thoughts that Go through my head throughout the day, some are important, some I just need a chance to vent, rant, rave or praise.
  4. I hold great passion for Information Technology, not so much the toys but the pure logic behind the science. As a dyslexic I find my interests really lie in things that are 100% logical (I.E.) I love chess because the rules never change, I find it much easier for me to get my mind around things that are constant.

In short blogging while dyslexic might seem like a foolish activity to most, but it is the ultimate release for my day-to-day thoughts and also a great way to practice communication and writing.
