Diabetes Blog Week!

Sign ups are rolling along for the 4th Annual Diabetes Blog Week, with about110 bloggers participatingright now. Diabetes Blog Week starts on MONDAY so please join in! You can usethis form to sign up, previewthe topics here, and find all of thedetails over here. I could not be more excited to see what next week brings!

What is Diabetes Blog Week? For those of you who havent participated before, the idea of Diabetes Blog Week is that bloggers sign up to post about a set topic each day for a week. This way, readers can jump around the D-Blog Community and get a plethora of different perspective on a single topic.

When is Diabetes Blog Week?The fourth annual Diabetes Blog Week will take place next week, from May 13th through May 19th.

Where can I find the Diabetes Blog Week topics?You can find the topics for next week on theTopics and Posts page. Theyve been posted in advance, just in case you want to start drafting your posts this week. Usethese topicsas a starting point for your post each day and see where it takes you. Write as much or as little as you like. There are no right or wrong answers just read over the topic and start blogging! Ive also included two wild card topics to choose from. If one days topic doesnt inspire you, feel free to post about one of the wild card topics instead!

Who can participate in Diabetes Blog Week?DBlog Week is open to anyone who blogs about diabetes be it Type 1, Type 2, LADA, or gestational, and its also for parents, spouses and caregivers to someone else with diabetes. If you blog about diabetes in any capacity, please join us! If you dont have a blog but have thought about starting one, now is the perfect time. There are free blogging sites you can use (such as Blogger or WordPress) and members of sites such as TuDiabetes or Diabetes Daily have a blog built right into their profile!

Can blogs done by groups, organizations and companies join?I like to make Diabetes Blog Week as inclusive as possible, so yes, group blogs and professional blogs are welcome to join. However, the posts should be written by a blogger with a diabetes connection and product plugs / advertising will not be allowed.

What if I cant write posts for all seven days? Of course, the idea for Diabetes Blog Week is that everyone who signs up to participate will post on all seven days. Although that is the goal, I understand that life sometimes gets in the way, so if you end up falling short of seven posts thats okay. Diabetes can be stressful enough, so lets keep DBlog Week fun and stress free!

How do I sign up? Once again, Ive created a form to submit your information. Fill it out and you will be signed up and added to the Participants List within 24 hours. There is a space on the form for you to let me know if you have any questions, and you can also email me at any time at DBlogWeek@bittersweetdiabetes.com.
