About Me

"Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing."
Benjamin Franklin

Howdy, and welcome to my blog. I assume if you're reading this you're looking for a little more background information on the author of this humble little blog. I figured it might be easier to make an About Me page to save people having to dig out my Introduction To Bloo entry. So, on with the info...

As you've probably gleaned already, my name is Sara. However most people call me Bloo. My blog is about me (Bloo) and other non-lifestyle stuff such as reviews and my opinions etc, hence the blog title Bloo 'n' Stuff.

I was born 20/04/90 and you can do the maths as to what age I am when you're reading this. That gets me out of having to update it every year. And fun fact: it's the same date as Hitler's birthday and the Columbine shooting. They do say bad things happen in threes, just saying. 

I have lived my whole life in the same little coastal town in Northern Ireland. My immediate family consists of my mum, dad and two sisters. My older sister Jann, who lives in London and my younger sister Eva Paige who I live with. Eva features a lot on my blog as we do A LOT together. She also has a blog, which can be found here. My parents live around five minutes away so we see each other a lot. Along with the humans in our family, we have a bunch of furry family. My babies are my cats Findlay and Ethel and my dogs Baby and Edwin, though Baby is more like my dad's dog. I also have a hamster Rue and three Giant African Land Snails called Violet Chachki, Agron and Duro. As well as my pets my sister Eva has her dog Berty and her own three snails. You can read a little more about my pets, complete with photos, here.

I have a form of Congenital Muscular Dystrophy called Collagen VI Myopathy. You can read more about what that means here.

As I mentioned above, this blog covers a diverse range of topics and things I'm interested in. Including, but not limited to, disability, pets, toys, television, literature, beauty and my opinions on current affairs. You can check out some of my series and my most popular posts in the sidebar.


Welcome to my blog,
I hope you enjoy a little glimpse into the life of Bloo!

    1. Yeah, and hopefully more will come out of the wood work. There are probably more, but they maybe done actually include their disability much :)

  4. HELLO SARA I am a 40 year old (yeah, I know) man with Spina Bifida living in Dublin who only discovered you about a month ago. You know you,re a pretty damn addictive girl you know that? In relation to having a disability yes a positive mental attitude is the imperative difference between succeeding & not succeeding but it can be a little more complicated than that Sara. You surround yourself with a loving supportive family and that right there is over half the battle, but not everybody is that fortunate. Also you will be very aware that, in the media, physical disability is treated extremely badly & perception is reality. What I mean by that is, thru lack of contact, most people have a very stereotypical misconception of how men & women with physical disabilities are, and media capitalizes on that ingrained mindset. You describe yourself as a disabled person but I describe myself as a man first, and secondly with a physical disability. Im not saying you are wrong or I am right - just individual opinions. You are an EXCEPTIONALLY beautiful, hypnotic, funny, charming young woman who never fails to cheer me up when my spirits hit the deck, as everybodys do from time to time. KEEP POSTING Sara Bloo - you have so much to offer this world, this life. I hope you live to be an EXTREMELY OLD and very happy woman. Zoltan xxxx

    1. Yes, this is true. I am extremely lucky but my family aren't perfect either. We've had many ups and downs and don't always see eye to eye. Especially when it comes to my independence. They're on board now for the most part but there's still a lot of disagreement and worry when it comes to my care. Obviously it isn't black and white. A positive mental attitude isn't going to guarantee you a great life but it will go a long way to helping. And yes the media and society aren't perfect but I do believe it's getting better. We have come a long way and I think we will continue to. I describe myself as a disabled woman because that's what I am. It doesn't mean I'm any less a woman first. I make a point to say I'm a disabled woman because it's a bit part of who I am and what has made me the person I am. Much the same way being a woman has. It's just one of the many things that makes me me. On a platform such as this it would be very easy for me to ignore that part of myself and not mention it, but if I did that the many other people with disabilities I have found through blogging wouldn't know we have that thing in common. And the people without disabilities wouldn't know that having a disability doesn't really make me any different. It wouldn't help change the misconceptions. It doesn't matter what way I word it 'disabled woman' or 'woman with a disability' the reality is the same. Though I would be interested to see how other people feel on the matter. I guess I've never been one for getting caught up in semantics anyway. But I digress, thank you for the comment. I'm really glad you enjoy my blog and I hope you continue to. :) xo

  6. also its pretty refreshing to see someone who doesn't let a disability define who they are, but instead keeps moving on through life taking each challenge that pops up and proving your strength :)
