Big Things for Scott in 2011!

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.

  1. My Jesse, at 18 is no longer a CWD , but a YAWD ( did I just make that up? Young Adult w diabetes) and is on his way to being an adult… We’ve been involved with CWD for 8 years and it’s good to know that there will be programming for him as an adult …The support he has recieved at CWD has helped him grow into a fine young man.
    By the way- Jesse is still wearing his Cozmo……

  2. We love you wherever you may roam and I give you a lot of credit for sticking with DiabetesDaily for 3 years knowing it would make money but not for you. I’ve been there for over 3 years now and am in much the same position as you. I wrote about it just the other day http://www.diabetesdaily.com/grace/2011/01/confessions-of-a-lazy-diabetic-the-2-words-that-can-change-your-life.php

    The fact that the Diabetes Daily platform allowed us to help more people than we felt we may have brought in on our individual blogs made it worthwhile not because it made good fiscal sense, but in a helping others way…but there comes a time when you have to help better support yourself and your loved ones, too–or else you’re doing the world a disservice by vastly limiting your personal resources which partially help you help others in a bigger way, too. So Kudos to you! I’m behind you every step of the way! Can’t wait to see what comes next.
