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 way back (!) in 2010.
I have seen this idea work it in other blogging communities and we are excited to bring it to the diabetes online community. As of February 2012 the hosting rotates around the diabetes online community.
How does it work?
Here are the categories:
Best Use of Humor
Best Use of Photography
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or send a DM to the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs twitter account (@bestbetesblogs) with your nominations.
A nomination would look something like this
