D-Blog Day was started on November 9th 2005, by Gina Capone of Diabetes Talkfest to help unite diabetes bloggers and create awareness about diabetes.
Our little diabetes community has been pretty quiet - but that is our nature for as long as I’ve known us. On this D-Blog day, I’d like to ask about your opinion on getting more involved in the diabetes blogosphere. It seems that the Diabetes O.C. has been quietly reincarnated. There are social networks like Tu Diabetes and we are a small and quiet part of Wellsphere. The OC is apparently represented on Facebook and Twitter as well.
The online diabetes community has been a big part of my diabetes care over the years. I am, personally, not very involved comparatively speaking these days. As I work to improve my self-care I have been thinking about whether I need to be more involved again. Or is diabetes just a part of my life and I need to focus on some of the other changes I’ve been working on?
