Same Difference Is Twelve!!!

June 21, 2019

Readers, Same Difference is 12 years old today. My tiny little piece of the World Wide Web has been here for 12 whole years!!!

It has changed quite a bit in 12 years. It has changed so much that it has even changed its name!!!

12 years ago, I was a University student who had just discovered political blogs. I was inspired by an online friend who is a political journalist, who had just started a blog.

I had a passion for writing and a passion for journalism. But when I started Same Difference, then called Remembering The Ability In Disability, I had no idea that I would develop a passion for politics. It took me quite some time to realise that I was being political, just by taking an interest in Disability Rights.

Over the last 12 years, Same Difference has covered many stories. Some have made me laugh out loud. Others have made me cry. Some have made me celebrate. Others have made me scream in frustration.

I have always focused on celebrating the amazing things that disabled people can do, with support. Over time, the site’s focus has been forced to shift. I have tried to cover more serious issues, particularly the UK’s welfare reforms.

From the very beginning, I have tracked the posts that get the most interest from you, my readers. I still read every comment. I make every possible effort to cover stories that you want to read, and I promise that I always will.

I have never forgotten that I wouldn’t be here today without you, readers. Your support means more to me than you will ever know.

THANK YOU ALL. Here’s to the next 12 years of Same Difference!!!
