FOR BIRD SPOTTER/PHOTOGRAPHER/FAN – If your disability has curtailed your ability to visit the great outdoors, clipped your wings (pun thoroughly intended) and/or handle the necessary gear. Perhaps start a blog/webpage where you review new equipment, share tips, talk about sites and talk about breeds.
Experience suggests that if you start off with a free site, intended to contribute to the community of practice in that space, you are more likely to be successful when you seek to add paid features to your efforts. Such as a subscriber’s area (perhaps using a service like Patreon) – where supporters, followers and fans could pay a few dollars a month to support your efforts. One idea that you could use on your patrons’ page would be an advanced copy of something that you will be posting to your main page. This kind of approach could be pursued from home, with little more expense than a home computer, internet access, web hosting and a Patreon account.
A more advanced approach to this might involve a YouTube channel, a webinar, or a regular podcast.
Amongst the advantages of this kind of approach is it allows you to share your expertise and stay engaged with your hobby irrespective of your disability.
