Find A Friend
Today is the first day of the Third Annual Diabetes Blog Week.
I just started my blog three weeks ago. It took me a looooong time to work up the nerve to "put myself out there." I knew I wanted to share my story, and hopefully meet others that could relate to me, but I kept questioning if I should really do it. What if some creep starts creeping around on my page? How much info is TMI? What if my blog comes back to haunt me when I run for public office someday (I have NO desire to run for public office, so I'm not sure why that doubt kept coming up.)
I finally started my blog, and lo and behold, I discovered the timing was right. After just three weeks writing a blog, I could participate in the Third Annual Diabetes Blog Week. I knew I had made the right decision to create a blog the minute I saw this, and saw all the wonderful new writers and blogs I could check out.
As far as introducing you to a new blog, I really don't have any outside all the ones participating in this blog week since I'm so new to this world. But I would like to give a shout out to Shannon of An American in Dublin because she was the first person to post a comment on my blog! I felt so great that someone "out there' in internet-land actually read one of my posts and I felt really encouraged. So, thanks Shannon for my being my first connection (and friend, I hope!) from the DOC, and I hope I get to know many more of you in the future!
