Dblog Week – Day 6: Favorites

Today’s topic is all about blogs!

If you have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blogpost that you have ever written? Is it diabetes related or just life related? If you are a new blogger and don’t have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog?

I definitely think that I fall under the “new blogger” bit here.

The first thing that got me thinking about starting a blog was my upcoming trip this summer. Of course, I hadn’t booked or scheduled any of it when I started this blog, but I was hopeful. I figured if I want to blog about my trip, I should probably figure out how it works before I actually leave.

Then I was searching around trying to figure out what else I might possibly want to put out in public for the world to see. I was also trying to figure out what could possibly make my blog special. So I googled diabetes and traveling blogs. I didn’t come up with very many so I thought this might be a good start. Of course now I’ve found oh so many more than I did back even two months ago. Things like #dblogcheck and this DBlog Week have really opened my eyes to many other diabetic bloggers out there.

When I first started this, I also saw all these people that seemed to have diabetes “figured out”. I’d see their awesome flat lines on Dexcom sensor and was like, well, that’s not me. So I thought there might be a chance some people would be interested to see a view from someone who’s not got it figured out. Of course, once again, the longer you lurk around blogs, you notice that no one has it perfect!

There’s not many people who blog about curling, for good reason. There’s generally not much to blog about and it’s a pretty small circle of people (especially in the US). Knowing myself however, I knew there was no way to completely avoid the topic of curling with my life. Therefore, there’s a tiny bit in here about that as well. I’m sure this will take a larger portion when it gets back to being the normal competitive season. It doesn’t help though, that curling is no where near a full time job, and curlers aren’t celebrities, so no one tends to care much about what we’re doing 🙂
