When The Mighty first came out, I loved their posts. It was like someone was writing my deepest thoughts and it seemed to normalize what we were going through. Then slowly, I kept coming across posts that didn’t sit well with me. It was then that I decided to unfollow The Mighty and I wrote a blog post on my decision.
A while ago, my favorite Christian/special needs writer Ellen Stumbo became the Parenting Editor for The Mighty. When she made the announcement, I was sad because I knew that meant that she cut back on writing for her own blog. As she started posting things on her Facebook page that were from The Mighty, I began to start reading those posts. Slowly, over time, I have started exploring The Mighty, and I realized that they have a completely new platform.
I have began again to really like it and I have decided to become more involved in their community. You can now find me on The Mighty under @Candicewilkinson. Please leave a comment below, I would love to hear your thoughts on whether you have also noticed this difference with The Mighty.
