Happy D-Blog Day!

Today is a special day for me. Today is D-Blog day (the 5th annual! (special thanks to Gina Capone)!

Today is a day where I am especially thankful for all of you in the DOC (Diabetes Online Community).  The DOC has grown so fast that I can’t even try to keep up anymore.  There are SO MANY great bloggers, tweeters, writers, supporters, and well-wishers.  It makes me so proud to see so many people doing great things out there.

Even with so many people sharing their stories now, we are a tiny percentage of all the folks living each day with diabetes.  You can be sure that all of you sharing your stories are reaching a bunch of folks who need the support and encouragement that we all offer.  Even just being able to identify with someone else in the world dealing with the same things every day can make a huge difference.  By sharing your story you might be giving the next great writer the nudge to give it a try!

Thank you, all of you, for having the courage to share your story.  I’m proud to call you all my friends and family.  We are making change.  We are making history.

  1. Right back at you, Scott. I have enjoyed reading your blog over the past few years. You are always so honest in your writing and, for that, I am very appreciative.
    You give me insight into Riley’ future and I have to say it doesn’t look half bad.
    Thank you for sharing your story with us.

  2. Well put, Scott. Very well put.
    Hope you had a wonderful D-Blog Day!
    Btw, I showed Joseph the video of you and George eating lunch – he loved it, as did I. When you & Super-G get together – whether it’s making a video or just taking a photo through the “eye” of a diet coke bottle – it’s magic! 🙂

  3. Yes… Thank U 🙂 remembering the first days I became active and not just a lurker…lol…not sure what I would do without the DOC support & friendship… much love & appreciation for all your kindness Scott!

  4. Scott, happy d-blog day. Each year this gets more meaningful and more exciting as the DOC grows and we connect together more closely. For me, meeting with you was one of the highlights. I’m especially jealous of George who got to have dinner with you. 🙂

  5. Scott, you nailed it. We are making history. I think back to the first d-blog day we celebrated and I can barely comprehend how far the online community has developed. And, you’ve been a big part of that. So make sure to give yourself a special pat on the back this dblog day. 🙂

  6. Well put Scott and oh how true! It is amazing how we can read a blog written by one and then the next thing you know you find yourself smack dab in the same situation. I know that makes things easier for me! I go back to the blog and reread it and the comments below to help me get through it!
    Thanks for sharing all of your thoughts Scott.
