#travel #blog Wheelchair Travel

Well, here’s your top tip for ranking higher on the #travel1k leaderboards: don’t change the name of your blog and have it completely inaccessible when the count the week’s results!

Not that anyone except us would need to know that, but we were in rebranding downtime for the week of February 7th … and doooooown we plummet to #218. Well, thanks to all our tweeps for keeping us on the charts at least with Twitter points!

This week we saw the biggest climbs from Irham (Trisvelogue) (up 616 places to 466th), CanTravelWillTravel (up 447 places to 392nd), and RichandCat LifeinourVan (up 283 places to 390th).

Just one new travel blogger this week. Please join me in giving a warm welcome to Amelia Old who went straight in at 334th.

Well done to this week’s top three Matt MattCharles McCool, and Howard Blount (Backroad Planet / #TBIN).

And let’s go find the highest ranked one we haven’t reviewed yet for this week’s visit — ooh, this one’s something special! At #11 up from #70, we have: @WCTravelOrg’s Wheelchair Travel!

Hello, I’m John Morris. I’m a 28-year-old car accident/burn survivor, triple amputee and wheelchair user. I created this wheelchair travel blog to share my experiences traveling the world and overcoming the barriers to accessibility.

After my car accident, I was told that my disability would make travel impossible. That was four years ago, and I have since visited 29 countries & territories and flown more than 750,000 miles – all with one hand, a passport and my power wheelchair!

I began blogging about accessible travel and disability issues to help guide you through the process of planning your own wheelchair accessible vacation. It is my hope that you will be empowered to experience the joys of life through travel. Follow along as I travel the world and find the inspiration for your next trip! 🙂

Alright, now that’s hardcore. Messr. Morris has been to ten times the countries of the average American

… and he’s done it with one hand.

Well, this is definitely the first blog we’ve ever seen where the About page comes with a trigger warning. If we ever start feeling our life is difficult, we know where to read to come up with some inspiration!

Technically, BuiltWith tells us it’s a standard WordPress setup, and as always we recommend Dreampress as your best choice for that, free Jetpack Professional and all; standard set of plugins as well, plus a number of advertising plugins that don’t look familiar, so that’s a blog to get some tips from…

… once we have enough traffic to make more than the couple of coffees’ worth a month Jetpack Ads are pulling in, anyways!

So if you are someone who needs an accessible travel resource, this is definitely the best blog we’ve ever seen; and it does strike us that some signal boost on accessible travel would be a merit making kind of thing to do, so we’ve put @WCTravelOrg on the Twitter pay-close-attention list, and you should notice some retweets for the acessibly travelling among us in future!
