Friendship Matters ~ D Blog Week, Day 1

It's Diabetes Blog Week again, and it couldn't have come at a more needed time for me. Thanks to a very busy schedule lately, and after April's HAWMC, I needed a little more time in the 3D world. Diabetes Blog Week is the perfect way for me to jump back in!

Today's topic: It seems the most popular thing about Diabetes Blog Week is that it helps us find blogs we weren’t reading yet and connect with some new blog friends.  With that in mind, let’s kick off Diabetes Blog Week by making some new connections.  Think about the d-blogs you read that you think we may not know about and introduce us to one that you love!!  Let’s all find a new friend today! 

The act of blogging itself opened up a whole new world for me. So many others out there who, like me, have something to share about their life with diabetes. Together we form this incredible, understanding, and supporting network referred to as the DOC (Diabetes Online Community). And while we share a few common goals, we are comprised of many voices. In fact, I read and follow so many great blogs, it's hard to pick just one favorite, but I will.

Fellow Canadian and BC resident Sherry is mom to two girls, one of whom has type 1 diabetes, and blogs over at Jenna's Pet Monkey. I love reading her posts and you will too. 

I also had the pleasure of meeting Sherry in real life last month, when we happily discovered, after reading each other's Facebook status updates, that our kids were going to be at their quarterly DEC clinic appointment at the same time. And while we didn't get nearly enough to time to chat, it was awesome to finally meet this witty writer face to face!

For a full list of all the D-Blogs I follow, check out my blog roll to the left.


  1. Wow, Jen. Thank you soooo much for such awesome bloggy love. It is too bad we didn’t get to chat more. I feel bad for not starting D-Blog Week. I blame soccer coaching and landscaping for this blog-slacking behaviour. I may just jump in yet, though! You rock, fellow D-Mama! xo

  2. I was looking for this certain information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.
