Introducing the New and Improved Best of the ‘Betes Blogs!!
What’s so new and improved about it?
Let me tell you –
When Ninjabetic George and I came up with the idea for the Best ‘Betes Blogs, the purpose was to bring attention to the great blogs posts from around the diabetes community. There are so many tremendous bloggers and well-written posts, with new bloggers joining us almost daily; it can be difficult to follow everything. By giving people the opportunity to nominate blogs, the hope was to connect everyone’s circles together and allow people to expand their network of support and encouragement.
After several successful months of posting the Best ‘Betes Blog awards, it became evident that George and I needed to take it to the next level. If he and I are the only ones publicizing the awards, then we aren’t really expanding the community as far as we can! And that’s where YOU come in.
Each month, the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs will now be hosted by a different blogger within the diabetes online community. We will do all the detail work for you, and all you have to do it pick the winners and write a post with the results.
Here’s another big change –
Nominations are now open all month long. If you read a post that deserves a nomination, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the specific post and the category in which the post fits OR use twitter to direct message the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs Twitter account (@bestbetesblogs) with the same information.
George and I will still handle the details with the e-mail and twitter accounts and then send the host all the nominations to choose from. The host gets to choose from the nominations and post the results on their blog on the 1st of the month. It’s as easy as that!
We are starting the new and improved Best of the ‘Betes Blogs on February 1st over at Texting My Pancreas. Start sending in your nominations now, and if you would like to host in the coming months please e-mail us.
Pass the word – we want the Best ‘Betes Blogs to truly represent the best of the entire diabetes online community!
