**D-blog Day was started on November 9th, 2005 during Diabetes Awareness Month, to help unite diabetes bloggers and to create awareness about diabetes.
In case you have never participated in D-Blog Day before, the entire DOC writes a blog post of similar topic that I come up with (or have help with from others) on their personal blogs and on the date of November 9. After blog posts are written, links can be added here on this post for everyone to see. (below)
Thanks to a very special Diabetes Dad, Tom Karlya, who helped me, we finally have a topic for this year… because I’ve had a bad case pregnancy brain!!
Here it is!!! Along with some directions!
Choose a form of Media Outlet to write an open letter to, such as NY Times, CNN, Local/National Newspapers, TV and why it is so important for them to let the world know that diabetes is more than just being overweight and having too much sugar. It is about reporting stories about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Let them know what kind of things you would like them to write about. If there are specific articles or reports they got wrong, let them know about it! Let’s get it right!
