Bolgging wiht Dyslexia

Hi All,

I don't usually do very personal posts but due to some catty comments in the blogger community in regards to spelling & grammar I felt obliged to share with everyone.

The comments were not direct at me at all and I won't share where I read them; I am happy to say it wasn't any of my favorite blogs. It was just one I stumbled upon a few weeks ago.

Dyslexia is one of those disabilities that gets dismissed as someone just being stupid or not trying hard enough. Having Dyslexia growing up was hard and I was called stupid a lot but I worked hard to get where I am and I didn't let my disability define me.

I (almost) have a Masters in Human Resources Management, all that is left is my dissertation, and with the support and understanding from teachers, family and friends I have been able to achieve a lot.

I won't spend the time trying to explain my problems with writing, spelling and grammar but what I will say is when reading my blog if you stumble across mistakes in the text please know I probably don't see them, even though I write all posts in Word first it doesn't always pick up my errors especially when I spell something write but I am using it in the wrong way i.e there & their.

Just remember everyone out there has difficulties with different things and no one has the right to judge them.
My difficulties just happen to be Writing related.

Ciao for now

Love Katrina x
