Living Well With Epilepsy’s Epilepsy Blog Relay™ is an epilepsy awareness movement designed to maximize collaboration and eliminate stigma.
The concept is simple: 30 bloggers, in 30 days. Each blogger takes one day of the month to post either on their own site or on Living Well With Epilepsy. Every story showcases some aspect of life with epilepsy. In each post, participating bloggers acknowledge the blog relay with a link back to Living Well With Epilepsy and to promote the next day’s post.
We run the Epilepsy Blog Relay™ every March June and November. And the themes include but are not limited to the following:
Week 1: Epilepsy in Everyday Life (1-7)
Week 2: Epilepsy and Families: Awareness Matters (8-14)
Week 3: Tech and Innovation in Epilepsy (15-21)
Week 4: Creativity and Epilepsy (22-31)

In June 2015, Living Well With Epilepsy launched the first Epilepsy Blog Relay™. The effort was modeled after the United Nations’ Shot@Life initiative to harness the power of bloggers to raise awareness of epilepsy related stigma. Throughout the month, participants covered epilepsy stigma in their own ways, on their own sites. They posted personal stories, information and updates on epilepsy events. This effort was extremely successful. In less than 24 hours 10 bloggers had filled 30% of the slots. In less than 5 days all 30 slots were filled and Living Well With Epilepsy was turning people away with the promise of more relays in the future. Bloggers participated from the US, England, Cameroon, Australia, and Canada. All participants saw a sharp increase in traffic to their sites and all made headway in their efforts to raise awareness.
