I can hardly believe it, but the Fourth(!!) Annual Diabetes Blog Week is just around the corner. If you’ve never participated before, Diabetes Blog Week was started in 2010 after I participated in a similar event in the fiber blog community. I loved the way Knit and Crochet Blog Week brought the fiber blog community together and helped me discover other knitting blogs, and I really wanted to try to do the same for the DBlog Community. I wasn’t sure anyone would sign up, but oh did you ever, and each year I’ve been so happy that participation has grown and grown!!
I’m so excited for 2013 Diabetes Blog Week, but this time I sure could use some help. You see, I’ve always felt that the most important thing I need to do for DBlog Week is to come up with some really really good topics. After all, if I’m going to ask you guys to blog for a full week on topics I’ve given you, they had better be some good prompts. They also need to be open-ended enough to work for everyone in the DOC - T1, T2, LADA, gestational and T3 (which includes all caregivers and loved ones of people with diabetes). For the first time I’m having some trouble coming up with awesome topics, so I thought I’d open it up to suggestions! What would you like to write about? What issues do you think are important for us to lend our voices to? What would be a a lot of fun to post about? If you have ideas and suggestions, please leave them in the comments section, or email them to DBlogWeek@bittersweetdiabetes.com.
Also, although I have fun creating the banners and buttons, I will admit they are pretty lame. If anyone would like to whip up the graphics for this year, please let me know!
Thanks everyone, and stay tuned for sign up information in just two (yikes!!) weeks.
