Rumor has it

Rumor has it… that Scott from Rolling in the D is hosting Best of the ‘Betes Blogs this month.

I love finding out about new blogs each month and reading the great stuff that people in our community share. It’s like

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear…

In case this is the first you are hearing of the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs or in case you forgot, there are several different categories in which you can nominate posts.

#bestbetesblogsBest 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
Best Diabetes Art Category


All of these words whispered in my ear,
Tell a story that I cannot bear to hear.
Just ’cause I said it, it don’t mean that I meant it,
People say crazy things.
Just ’cause I said it, don’t mean that I meant it,
Just ’cause you heard it…

As you read blogs during the month, take note of any posts that you think are a perfect example of one of the categories listed above (please no self-nominations). Email or send a DM to the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs twitter account (@bestbetesblogs) with your nominations.

The “Best of” are only as good as the people who nominate. There are those who nominate every month and I am very thankful for those people. But there are so many more people in the diabetes community who we haven’t heard from. And that hurts a little.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

Nominations end this month on Friday August 31st at midnight. Due to the Labor Day holiday, Scott will post the results on his blog on Tuesday, September 4th. I am excited to see the results.

I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
And you played it, to the beat


I mean, really? You expected me to write this post WITHOUT sampling Adele?


  • Did I ever tell you about the time (last week) when I learned something new about diabetes that I hadn’t known previously from a dBlog, despite having D for over 30 years? That’s a great reason for me to nominate that post.

    ‘Cause there’s a side to you that I never knew ,never knew
    All the things you’d say,they were never true, never true
    And the games you’d play, you would always win, always win

  • Listen, you maybe if I had more time free to even set fire to the rain I might have noticed this earlier. However, I am had not hit the entire blog reading section of my day. Thank goodness the power is up in the offices or I would have no internet and no clue as to what you were talking about.
