Pancreas Bonfire.

One of the things I love about the diabetes online community is the way we don't have to have any clear lines drawn around us. We're type 1, type 2, LADA, type awesome. We're teenagers; we're senior citizens. We're patients; we're caregivers; we're doctors and dietitians. We're newly diagnosed; we're veterans.

And even though none of us would actively wish for more people with diabetes, our circle keeps growing around this pancreas bonfire. (That's a weird mental image... and totally just became the title of this post.) 

So how do we find these voices? Sara and George have come up with a great way to do just that.

It's called Best of the 'Betes Blogs, and it will showcase community-nominated blogs each month, in a variety of categories. In their words:
"As you read blogs during the month, take note of any posts that you think are a perfect example of one of the categories (please no self-nominations). From the 21st to the 28th of each month email bestbetesblogs@gmail.com with your nominations for the “best of”. Then on the 1st of the month visit BestBetesBlogs.com to see the winners."
For the full details, read the rest of the post on Sara's blog! Thanks to George and Sarah for putting this together - I love finding new blogs to read! :)

  1. I love how we're all part of this family without making our differences a big deal. It's no different than a regular family. "Oh, that's Uncle Joe. Yeah, he's got a bum leg." LOL
