You might have noticed that The Bipolar Writer blog is going through some incredible changes. I have increased the number of collaborative bloggers into what has become a family to me. Every experience in this mental illness life has its unique parts, and while my interview series has highlighted the different struggles in the mental illness community, it’s point of view is what I write.
I want to end the stigma that surrounds the mental illness community, and I can’t do it alone. I want this blog to be a voice, not just my own, but those that are willing to share pieces of their experience in this mental illness life. For me, creating a collaborative blog was always the answer. It was the goal, the reason why I started The Bipolar Writer blog.
I have also been amazed at the outpour from the community to guest blogging on The Bipolar Writer. In May alone I was able to feature 3-4 guest blogs a week. It is another option that I offer to those who are not quite ready to take on being a contributor blogger. My guest bloggers write their own pieces, link their own blogs, and its a relationship that usually grows– though not always.
I am always thinking of new ways to explore and expanding The Bipolar Writer blog. If you have any suggestions on what I can do better or what you would like to see here, never hesitate to contact me.
I am excited about what my contributors and guest bloggers bring this summer.
Lastly, I want to continue to grow the contributor bloggers, so I am thinking of looking for an editor to help with the amount of posts that come through the blog. I am just thinking at this point, but if you are a contributor already, let me know if you would be interested.
