Getting Published On The Mighty For the First Time
Today I had my first article published on “The Mighty”. For me this is a huge achievement because the mighty has a massive online audience. Writing for the Mighty means I have a platform to share and raise more awareness about my illness Adrenal Insufficiency and the difficulties faced by people dependent on daily steroid medication.
The Mighty is a digital Publisher that connects people with disabilities and disease throughout the online world. They have a Facebook following of over 235,000 and their stories are often shared on media platforms such as CNN, Cosmopolitan, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, ABC News, Buzz Feed and Mashable.
I must admit, I wasn’t sure if i’d even get considered. You see the Editors at the Mighty get stories sent to them everyday and they cant possibly publish everything they receive. However I thought I’d try and I gave it a shot and they replied saying they would love to publish my piece.
I’m so excited! This is a great step for me. I have dreams of being published in other places in the future but for now this is my first step. To make thing seven better, I was told I am a great writer and asked to produce more articles.
That made my day and so I’ll be sending another article in the coming month with the hope of getting published again!
