I wrote about disabled accessibility at music festivals! Check it out. 
The sun is shining, there are clouds in the sky… where better to be than in a remote field, burger in hand, listening to live music in the open air? Whether you prefer the vastness of a huge event like Glastonbury or somewhere more intimate, there are festivals to suit every mood and preference. Campaigns like Attitude is Everything and Stay Up Late work hard to ensure that deaf and disabled people can attend live music events, but what are festi...

I wrote about the pros and cons of self-hosted vs free blogs. Lots of #Wordpress  goodness! 
There are plenty of free ways to get a website online, but 'free' doesn't necessarily mean it's right for your business. Philippa looks at self-hosted vs free blogs.

Some pointers for your next job application... 
When applying for a job, it is vital to make a good impression. Most openings have many applicants, so you need to stand out from the crowd.I proofread a lot of CVs, resumes and covering letters and, because I have hired staff, I also know what employers want to see. Here are some top tips to make sure your job applications stand out for the right reasons! Avoid spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. It is really hard to proofread your own...

Are you disabled in the UK? Do you employ a personal assistant? Would that PA be willing to talk to me for a magazine feature? Alternatively, are YOU a PA or carer? Thanks!

A lot of people believe that a venue being wheelchair accessible is the same as it being accessible to all disabled people. So I wrote a post about what disabled accessibility really means. 
Despite it being illegal, and exclusionary, many activist groups run events that are inaccessible to disabled people. There are arguments put forward about the expense of accessible meeting rooms, but they don’t stand up. If you are a left-wing activist of any kind, it is just wrong to hold meetings or events that don’t allow attendees who …

I wrote about how the web makes it much easier for those of us who are disabled to run our own businesses from home!
The internet is breaking down the barriers that prevent many marginalised people from living full, independent lives. A higher proportion of disabled people are self-employed because, by becoming their own bosses, they can design their workspace – and work day – to suit their own needs. For many, self-employment isn't just an opportunity, it might be the only opportunity. Since setting up my own freelance writing business, I have found that the f...
