The 6th annual D-blog Day is coming upon on us November 9 and I finally have a topic. Well sort of a topic more like a project! This year I decided to do things a bit differently and put a creative twist on the day.
What you should know... D-blog Day was started on November 9th 2005 during Diabetes Awareness Month, to help unite diabetes bloggers and create awareness about diabetes.
What I would like to do this is year is to have a scrapbooking project. Everyone will make a 12×12 scrapbook page and take a pic of their creation and post it on their blog. Then you to send it to me through snail mail (send me an email at gina.capone(at)gmail(dot)com and I will give you the mailing address) so I can make a huge scrapbook that will incorporate all of the pages into a book format. I will tie the pages with a ribbon or try to bind it some other way to keep it together. How that will happen really depends on how many participants we have.
Below is a sample page of something I created which is 1 part actual scrapbook and 1 part computer generation because I didn’t have enough supplies! (I will do better than this I promise!)
What your scrapbook page needs to include:
• 12×12 sheet of paper
• The name of the person with diabetes, family name, dedication name
• Diagnosis Date
• D-Blog Day 2011
• I want a cure
• Blue World Diabetes Day Circle or Diabetes Ribbon
Who can participate? ANYONE AFFECTED BY DIABETES
Please use the hashtag: #dblogday and be sure to spread the word!!
Alternative: If you won’t be doing a scrapbook page.
The blog topic for this year is: Why you feel the Diabetes Online Community is so important? especially to you personally? Give examples of other diabetes involvement may you have, on or offline, how it helped you etc… How do you think “we” as an online community can band together to reach broader audiences to help even more people living with or affected by diabetes.
