First just a little background Gina is a facebook friend that I have recently met since Cara's dx. She is a Type 1 and very very active within the diabetic community on and off the computer. I first met her on Juvenation a website for Type 1's.
Gina's facebook statues update read: Don't forget D-blog day is November 9. Details with the link below. Very interesting I thought to myself and I click the link and copied and pasted for you all:
It’s November and you know what that means? The air is crisp, the leaves are yellow and orange. And, It’s diabetes awareness month! It is our chance to shine as a community and for the past 4 years we have! We dubbed November 9 as our D-bloggin’ holiday! Which is dedicated to blogging about diabetes awareness and support.
What do you do on d-blog day? Well, you can write on your blog if you haven’t in a while. Or, you can make a poem, introduce yourself if you have never blogged before, tell us about a new website that you found or get out of the d-closet and start a blog and stop being a lurker!! Basically d-blog is anything you can think of diabetes related.
Just put D-blog Day 2009 or Happy D-Blog day in your subject so we can find you. If you are on twitter the hashtag is #dblogday
Also, add this awesome logo to your blog post (below) that my friend Chris Bishop of The Big D blog designed for us! Thanks Chris
I will be compiling a list of people that have d-blog posts on November 9 and you will be able to find them here. Be sure to let me know if you create a blog post on Monday, in case by any chance I miss it!
Get those creative juices flowing people because its D-Blog Day 2009!!
Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts!!
