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.
