Here on the Liberare blog we love making posts that are catered to our readers and amplifying disabled voices by allowing disabled women to tell their stories. However, as much as we love our blog, there is room for everyone to have a platform, and today we want to spotlight other disabled blogs that give us awesome thought-provoking experiences. In order to make a difference in the disabled community, we feel it's important to work together in order to encourage each other and push each other forward.
This blog is part of a series, and today is all about bloggers in wheelchairs. Stay tuned for next week when we'll be discussing blogs that focus on different disabilities.
Without further ado, here are our favorite disabled bloggers that you need to check out!

She's always going on crazy adventures, so a lot of her content focuses on accessible adventuring and the troubles of traveling as a disabled woman.

Kathleen Downes created The Squeaky Wheelchair based on her life riding around in her squeaky purple wheelchair. Kathleen discusses incredibly important topics related to being a wheelchair user but also just general topics relating to disability. She speaks about how to advocate for yourself in medical situations, how to deal with chronic pain, and even the hard-to-talk-about subjects such as inspiration porn.
