Write a Blog

 

Listen, let’s just cut to the chase.  If I can do it, anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of a computer and the internet can do it.  A blog written by someone with the disease is not a new concept, as evidenced by the links at the end of this post, but that doesn’t mean that the individual with memory loss can’t contribute something to their family or the world.  Actually, that’s an important point.  Most, if not all, blogging websites allow you to choose your privacy settings so it is either open to the general public or accessible only to those you give a password to.  Therefore, the person with memory loss can really blog about anything-their life, old memories, things s/he wants to share with friends and family, poetry, photos, their disease, whatever they like.  If it’s too personal, they can always restrict access if they want.  Even for those who are computer-shy or losing their pre-existing skills can write a blog by dictating to another person or using a dictation software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking.

For inspiration, try visiting these blogs.  They tend to speak on the topic of Alzheimer’s, but that’s certainly not the only topic of interest to those with memory loss.  I’m sure there are lots of blogs out there written by people with memory loss that never mention the diagnosis.

  1. I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve introduced to your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
