Diabetes Blog Week 2017


This is my first year of taking part in this great initiative. I am really looking forward to the challenge of blogging on 5 subjects on 5 consecutive days. This gives the chance to share experiences, gain knowledge from others and hopefully make some new diabetes blogging buddies.

I have been an active blogger for nearly a year now, in fact the 6th of June is my ”Bloggerversary”.
In that time I have learnt so much about diabetes, the people within the diabetes online community and about how blogging works too. I am excited for the venture ahead next week. You can read about why I blog ➡ Here

My thanks go out to Karen Graffeo of  Bittersweetdiabetes.com for hosting this special event, hats off to you Karen 🙂 Please see below from Karen’s website about how next week will work and how to get involved if you wish too.

How does Diabetes Blog Week work?

The main idea for Diabetes Blog Week is that bloggers sign up to post about a set topic each day for a week.  This way, readers can jump around the DBlog Community and get a big variety of different perspectives on a single topic.  The hope is that new DOC connections are made, and that our voices are raised to spread a little more diabetes awareness.

When is Diabetes Blog Week? 

The eighth annual Diabetes Blog Week will take place next week, from May 15th through May 19th.

Who can participate in Diabetes Blog Week? 

DBlog Week is open to anyone who blogs about diabetes – be it Type 1, Type 2, LADA, gestational, etc., and it’s also for parents, spouses, loved ones and caregivers to someone else with diabetes.  If you blog about diabetes in any capacity, please join us!  The more perspectives that are shared the more connections we can make and understanding we can foster.  If you don’t have a blog but have thought about starting one, now is the perfect time.

What if I can’t write posts for all five days?

The idea for Diabetes Blog Week is that everyone who signs up to participate will post on all five days.  Although that is the goal, I absolutely understand that life sometimes gets in the way, so if you end up falling short of five posts that’s okay.  Diabetes can be stressful enough, so let’s keep DBlog Week fun and stress free.
