For the past few years, Living Well With Epilepsy has dedicated June as Epilepsy Stigma Awareness Month. This year we are getting the epilepsy community involved through a blog relay. For this to succeed we will need 30 bloggers/advocates/family foundations/epilepsy affiliates who are willing to post ONE day in June on the topic of epilepsy stigma. That’s it, just one post.
Who can participate?
There’s no limit to who can participate. Your site can be a personal blog, a family foundation, a research project, an epilepsy affiliate or more.Your post can be a personal story, an interview, information on an event, just make sure it relates back to epilepsy stigma. Then you need to include a link to the next post in the relay. That’s it.
In less than 24 hours of outreach we had commitments from 5 groups and had an overwhelming response on Facebook. Don’t miss your opportunity.
Start by confirming your participation so we can recognize your efforts. Then, write one post during the month of June on the topic of Epilepsy Stigma. Finally, link to the next day’s blog in the relay. Seriously, it’s that easy. I also encourage you to comment on the blog posts that inspire you.Participate
How will I know which day I need to post?
When you confirm your participation you will be asked to identify your three top choice dates. We will try to schedule everyone on a day they want to post. If we have more than 30 people interested in participating we can have multiple people on one day. If not then it is first come first serve.
What do bloggers get?
Since Living Well With Epilepsy is an all volunteer operation, you will get the following:
- Increased traffic to your site
