I am Meg(z)han, it’s a combination of my actual name and my nickname, it’s basically a signature on all of my social media accounts. I’m in my early twenties and I live in the USA.
I have a disability, I have Arthrogryposis, it is a joint disease that affects my arms and legs. My arms are bent at the elbow and are stuck like that for rest of my life. Since I can’t use them, I’ve had to learn how to do things with my feet. I can text, type, etc with my little painted toes. I use an electric wheelchair to get around. It’s hot pink and black. I have another one that is a push wheelchair, I call it “The Death Trap” only because it’s the only chair I’ve managed to fallen out of in my whole life!
This blog is my baby! I started blogging officially in late 2009, but I didn’t create this blog until May 2011. I would say this is a lifestyle blog. It’s made up of different things. I talk about fashion, music, photography, etc. I try to tie my disability into everything; my focus is to show everybody that because I have a physical disability it doesn’t mean I can’t live a little! This blog is my way of showing the good and bad sides of it.
My blog opened a few doors for me lately! In August of 2015, I started hosting the #USBloggerChat chat on Twitter. I was in charge of the third week of the month. I tend to choose themes that both bloggers AND non-bloggers can chat about on there. I like to open my days to anybody!
I am a contributing writer for Disability Horizons. It is an online magazine written by people with different disabilities. I mostly like to write about music and conduct interviews. I became an editor for Bloggeration Magazine in 2015. Which was also an online magazine but for bloggers written by bloggers. I was the disability editor there, but I think my role is different from what I feel comfortable talking about on DH. After 6 months, the writers were let go but I think the articles are still readable, and I have a *disclaimer tab underneath the About where you can check out all of my articles on both sites!
One of the things you’ll notice is that I have a slight cat obsession. It was created when a stray kitty named Bootsie that my sister befriended one weekend and she started having kittens! Tubby was from that first liter she had, he comes around every now and then. Mostly we have two from each of her other two liters that stay around the house. Midget, Grumpy, Stormy, and Bear-Bear! April 2015, Bootsie and two of her daughters Wren and Midget had their last set of kittens. Wren ran off a little after she brought her three babies over to the house. So now we have Oscar, Felix, Tavy, and Nelly! My sister has other three: Otis, Toni and Gru! If you’re not into cats at all, you may not like this blog very much!
If you want to ask me any more questions down below are different links you can use, I’m mostly on Twitter though! Hope you enjoy your stay on my blog!
