4th Annual D-Blog Day: November 9th

November 6th, 2008

**D-blog Day was started on November 9th 2005 during Diabetes Awareness Month, by Gina Capone to help unite diabetes bloggers and create awareness about diabetes.

If you have a blog and would like to participate in D-blog day it is this Sunday, November 9th. Make a post and call it D-Blog Day, Happy D-Blog Day or anything with D-Blog day in the name of it.

To show your support for this 4th Annual D-Blog Day send your blogging friends a Happy D-Blog Day comment. Usually, people will write a poem or haiku of inspiration, shout out a new blogger, write their diagnosis story or if they lurk diabetes blogs, they will delurk.

**Once you do your D-Day blog comment back here so we know you are joining in this fun event! I will make a post of all participants here randomly during the day on Sunday.**

To find and see a listing of all of the D-bloggers check out THE DIABETES OC Website.

Show your support for the diabetes blogging community! Participate with us this Sunday.

Every year we make a new logo to post up on your blog. So please post this logo up on your site for D-blog day. Just right click it and copy the image location. You can use either size.

    LOVE the logo!

    BTW, where should people send a notice about their blog on d-blog day? What about people just starting a blog for the first time? How do they connect with others reading and writing blogs?

    I most definitely will be participating. I enjoyed designing the logo and am fortunate enough to be the featured blogger on the Diabetes OC, so I will have a post up there and will likely have one up on my own blog as well.

    Really looking forward to seeing and hearing how people celebrate D-Blog Day.

    I decided to start off my blog by participating in the annual D-Blog Day. I didn’t even know this existed until just days ago, but I’m excited about it. I look forward to seeing how and what other diabetics choose to post to recognize the day, and to meeting new people.
