In an ideal world I would be publishing this post on January 1, 2011, because that’s the time for big announcements, right? But early tomorrow morning I am heading out of town to work with Kerri and the folks at CWD. We are building an amazing ‘Adults With Type 1” program into the Friends For Life conferences, and are getting our feet wet with some of the staff and will be doing a few small presentations for people attending the Family Support Weekend.
You might have noticed that I’ve got a new home here. I have been blogging with Diabetes Daily for almost three years, and it has been wonderful. David and Elizabeth have been gracious hosts, and gave me a platform to reach many people. I’m forever grateful for that, and Diabetes Daily will always have my support and appreciation. I hope that many of the great community members will continue to visit me.
This decision was hard for me, and I don’t see it as “leaving” Diabetes Daily. I’m in an interesting (and scary) period of my life. Since I lost my job with Cozmo, I’ve been trying to find a way to support my family while contributing to the diabetes online community. It has been hard, and while I’ve made a little progress, I’m a long way from being able to pay the rent every month. So I need to step my game up a few notches. And to do that I need to brand myself and shine a light on all that I’ve done so far, and all that I hope to do in the future.
I’m hoping this will help. Welcome.
“Imagine having to pump your own heart because it didn’t do it by itself. And when you want to sleep you have to pump it slower. For exercise you would have to speed it up. You would have to know the rate of pumping for every activity. Do you think you could do it? Do you think it would be easy?”— George Simmons, Facebook
