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!

How Exciting!

    1. Thanks Annabel. This is really important for me and I feel like celebrating 🙂 Think I might open a bottle of sparkling grape juice before I get back on my diet on monday!

  1. Oh wow Angela, this is AMAZING, well done!! I can’t believe your article is now being seen for so many people!! This is a huge step for you!! Congratulations lovely!! I read the article and I was so angry at that person who did that graffiti! Grr what an ignorant really!! It was a great piece!! Looking forward to read the next one 🙂 xxx

  2. Oh wow congratulations this is such an amazing thing for you. I would love to be published elsewhere and hopefully that will happen for me to at some point 🙂 Great post as well so I am not surprised it was picked. Well done again.

  3. Well done! That’s bloody brilliant. I’d love to be published on the Mighty (a lot of my blog posts are about ASD as my son and other members of my family are on the spectrum). I follow them on Facebook and it’s really amazing you’ve had a post published there.

    I’ll definitely read the post and keep up the good work.

  4. Congratulations! A really lovely, well written piece but you were way nicer about them than I would have been. And no swears!

    Hopefully this will be the first of many for you.

    1. lol. Yes I don’t like to swear it’s not part of my vocab. I’m not sure how I would have reacted had it been someone saying it to me- that would have been worse i guess. I often do get dirty looks when we use the disabled parks. I guess because i look okay people think I shouldn’t be using it!

  5. Congratulations! I read the post and I totally agree with you – whoever wrote that needs to take a long hard look at themselves, because it says more about them than anyone else!
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes

    1. Exactly! I felt quite disappointed that someone whether adult or child would stoop that low! I’m glad I spoke out though. Sometimes it’s good to stand upa nd speak out! Angela Milnes
