Introducing… Best of the ‘Betes Blogs

I think one of the best parts of Diabetes Blog Week was finding blogs that I had never read before. I really wanted to keep that idea going so I emailed George to talk about bringing back an idea we had first started thinking about over a year ago.

I have seen this idea work it in other blogging communities and I am excited to bring it to the diabetes online community. Each month George and I will take turns hosting the “Best of the ‘Betes Blogs” awards.

How does it work?
Here are the categories:

Best Use of Humor
Best Vlog
Best Recipe
Best Use of Photography
Best Advocacy
Best Reference to a D-Celebrity
Best Story of a D Meet-up
Best non-D Related Post
Best Post by a Type 1
Best Post by a Type 2
Best Post by a Type Awesome
Best Post by a LADA/ Type 1.5/ Not otherwise specified
Best story of a D-mistake
Best Motivational Post

As you read blogs during the month, take note of any posts that you think are a perfect example of one of the categories (please no self-nominations). From the 21st to the 28th of each month email with your nominations for the “best of”.

A nomination would look something like this

Sara (include link to blog if you have one) nominates Sprinkles for the Best Story of a D-Mistake (link to the specific post you are nominating on Sprinkles’ blog)

Then on the 1st of the month visit to see the winners.

I am excited to start this project and be able to bring more attention to some of the best posts in the community!

Nominations for June posts start tomorrow!!!!
