Among all the wonderful people I’ve met from the Diabetes Online Community, I would have trouble choosing just one who I would consider a best friend. How do you choose just one? I could list hundreds of DOC Best Friends.
But if I did make a list, near the top of that list for me would be Karen Graffeo, writer at Bitter-Sweet Diabetes, and creator of Diabetes Blog Week. This year’s edition of #DBlogWeek happens May 16 through May 20.
Why am I telling you about Diabetes Blog Week an entire week before it happens? So you can get ready, of course! I know that many of the readers of this blog are also writers of blogs of their own, so if you are writing a blog about diabetes, about your life with diabetes, I encourage you to take part. If you’re thinking of starting your own diabetes blog, telling your story, bringing your light to the world, I can think of no better week to start than next week.
Karen has already posted the topics for each day of the week HERE. Thst’s great for me, because I need a head start this year.
Once we reach the 16th, Karen will post links to a page where you can both link your post for that day, and get other posts to read from that day. You’re probably thinking that this would be a great way to discover new diabetes blogs, and you would be right.
Oh, one other thing: there is now a Diabetes Blog Week Facebook page! Yet another place for you to post to and read posts from.
I really like the topics this year, and I’m really looking forward to the chance to write freely for five straight days. I love to write in this space, and if you are looking for a chance to reach people through the power of your own voice, it would be difficult to find a better platform than Diabetes Blog Week, beginning May 16.
