I don't read a lot of diabetes blogs. I read Six Until Me, and occasionally a few that link off of there.
I read all my friends' blogs, but none of them are diabetic and they never post anything anymore.
So really, I need to get more involved in the DOC (Diabetes Online Community).
When I started this blog, I really didn't expect anyone to read it. The only thing on here was a presentation that my teacher thought deserved recognition. And thus began this blog.
At first, I thought out, planned, and edited each and every post. And I only posted things that were huge; the presentation, the story, the WDD awareness. But since I made that promise to myself, I've been using this as a medium to express myself. No planning or thinking - just being who I am.
I don't have
I'm also one of those silent lurkers who doesn't comment on anything but still wants to be recognized. But now, I feel like I'm starting to come out of my shell. Participating this week was a big leap.
So I need to find some friends. And hopefully this week will let me do that.
Actually, looking back at this post before publishing it, I realized that maybe I have found one friend. Kerri, at Six Until Me, inspires me every day and is an awesome role model. Her blog was the first real-people diabetes-related thing that I read, and I've never gone back. So although she may not know it, she is a really good friend. Thanks.
And because I am going to find a friend this week, here's a list of all the D-Blog Week participants.
