Oblivious to D-Blog Day

By Courtney | 3 Rookie Marks »

Before I started blogging about my diabetes, I was oblivious to the blogs of other diabetics. I had no clue that they existed, it wasn’t something that I had ever thought about or searched for. Actually, that’s a lie, I vaguely remember seeingSixUntilMe before I emerged into the Diabetic OC.

Last year, during Diabetes Awareness Month (this month, November) I missed D-Blog Day. This year, I almost missed it again, because I didn’t know about it until today when I started reading blogs this afternoon and saw entries about it.

D-Blog day was created in 2005 by Gina Capone to help unite diabetes bloggers and create awareness about diabetes. This year, I’m not sure what to say, other than there is an extensive array of diabetic bloggers out there and there are some great communities where they all unite and help each other out and band together to bring awareness of this disease.

If you ever want to see what they’re writing, I suggest checking out the headlines at Diabetes Daily (which is one community); TuDiabetes is another community; if you’re a woman with diabetes then DiabetesSisters is worth taking a look at; DiabetesFriends is another one; and there’s also Diabetic Connect.

3 Rookie Marks On Oblivious to D-Blog Day

  1. I’m not sure if it is a good or bad thing to be oblivious to D-blog day!

    Happy D-blog day either way!

  2. I’m jealous you have something better to do on a Sunday than park in front of the computer to read blogs and such. Belated Happy D-Blog Day!

  3. LOL! Lee Ann. I can hook you up with better things to do on your Sunday mornings.

    I was out running (a whole 7 miles) in 30F weather and then because, you know, running is such hard work, I took a nap.

    If it would help you not be jealous I’d be happy to call you on those weekend mornings and drag you out of bed for long bike rides and runs in the cold weather ;)
