Like these links – Info, Advocacy, and more.

A quick update of my own first: I’ll be talking with Cherise Shockley and Scott Johnson Thursday night at 9:00 USA Eastern time on DSMA Live. We’ll be talking about the initiative to award medals to Athletes With Diabetes who are out there getting active and competing (the “medal count” is up to 3! Yay!). You can listen in on Blog Talk Radio, and participate in the conversation by calling the number listed on the page:

Now, without further ado, and in no particular order, here are links to things I’ve found interesting, funny, and useful recently around the diabetes blogosphere. Unlike most of these posts, this time I’m actually including a couple of more well-known sites… Just ‘cause I want you to know about what’s happening.


In honor of Diabetes Awareness Month, the folks over at A Sweet Life are giving away a nice set of blue Le Creuset cookware. I want that French Oven. Heck, who am I kidding? I want the whole set! The chance to enter ends soon… like today. Enter here:


The wonderful people at Diabetes Mine are doing giveaways this month too… Here’s their latest.

Also, they’ve released the results from their Patient Voices survey, and put it in a super infographic. Check it out… and click on the image to find out more:


Melissa Lee at Sweetly Voiced has been encouraged by the Big Blue Test this month, and decided to make the effort to walk 10 miles per week for the next five weeks. Awesome… just awesome. And she’s using her activity to be an advocate too, hoping to raise $1,000 for the Diabetes Hands Foundation, creators of the Big Blue Test, in the process. Want to support her? Read the story, then click on her fundraising page to donate:


Finally… these kind of photos always make me laugh. Jen G. (one of our medal winners!) at See Jen Dance had a few questions when she saw this sign at her local pharmacy:


Hope your Wednesday is going well… Have a great rest of the week!

    Thanks for the nod, Stephen. Although, I can’t claim ownership of that photo. The credit belongs to someone else awesome on the internet, which was later found by Diabetes Memes on Facebook. (Which should be in the post somewhere.)
