Find a friend.

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!

Truth be told, I was introduced to all of the diabetes-related blogs by other people in the Diabetes Online Community, so I have a really good feeling that I read just about the same things as everyone else doing D-Blog Week. Instead of being redundant, I’d like to give some props to my favorite Facebook group.

You all know what “memes” are, right? Those internet graphics that everyone seems to be posting, sharing, and maybe giggling over? Well, Type 1 Diabetes Memes is a group started by two young Type 1’s, and they take pre-existing memes and make them d-funny, and sometimes even post original ones. The cover is an image of a Monopoly board with spaces saying things like, “Visit to the Endo” and “Chocolate Cupcake.” (Although, it should probably be the Game of Life and not Monopoly, when you think about it.) 2500+ people like the page, and I find it refreshing that so many of us on Facebook alone just need a laugh from time to time to escape the madness.
