Eighth Annual Diabetes Blog Week!
When I first started Diabetes Blog Week way back in 2010 I wasn’t sure if anyone would sign up. I was so excited to see how many of you wanted to participate. And each year I become more and more grateful that so many d-bloggers continue to show such support and enthusiasm for this event. I’m also thankful for all of the help you’ve given, with topics for us to write about and suggestions to help things run more smoothly. Diabetes Blog Week has continued to evolve and grow in a way I couldn’t have ever imagined. And so I’m beyond excited to kick off the Eighth Annual Diabetes Blog Week. Here we go!

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.
