The MS Conversations blog has been up and running for almost four years and will celebrate its anniversary this summer. Over the last few years the blog has grown and expanded to include many new and exciting guest bloggers from the MS community.
Journaling and writing about your life and experience with MS is a personal choice and is one that is often met with a bit of hesitancy. For some, opening up in a public forum or public space runs the chance of being faced with criticism or judgement; which can be a source of stress. However, journaling or blogging can also hold positive benefits, such as; creating a bond or connection to individuals you may have never had the opportunity to meet in person.
Several options are available to those who are interested in connecting to an online community; whether it is starting your own blog or joining as a contributor to a blog that you enjoy reading, there is an option to have your voice and story heard.
Have an interest in guest blogging with MSAA? Contact Samantha at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. A writing sample will be required as well as a signed consent and release form. All guest blogger opportunities are un-paid, and volunteer based.
