Diabetes Blog Week Day 7: What We've Learned

Like some of my d-blogger peers (I'm thinking of Cara at Every Day Every Hour Every Minute, today's last Diabetes Blog Week post is going to be short & sweet.

This 7th post: What We've Learned. Last year, one d-blogger made a suggestion for this topic. She commented that "Day 7 should be a post about stuff we've learned from other blogs or the experience of coming together online..." So today, let's do just that! We're writing about what we've learned from other blogs, this week or in full since finding the DOC. What's the experience of blogging been like, and what's the DOC done for you? This post could even be used to look ahead and talk about what the future holds.

This post is supposed to be about what I've learned. Basically I've learned one very important thing about myself & my diabetes since I found the D-OC. That is that I am NOT ALONE! Beyond that, I've learned that there are so many creative, interesting and dynamic Diabetes Blogs out there and their numbers continue to grow! Neither is a small discovery!

Well, that's all for today. More to come after I've managed to digest all of the posts from this past week!

Great post, Scott! Absolutely correct that none of us are alone, and with all of the bloggers now a part of this ever-expanding DOC, the sky is the limit. When we take all this passion and advocacy offline, it's amazing what can be accomplished and no PWD ever must feel like he or she is alone!

Well said. It was hard for me to put into words too, but you've got it right. It's a big community and it's great to learn from each other. Hope to see more from you in the future.

I already wrote this once today, but I feel like I'm back at diabetes camp. At camp the most important thing kids (and adults) learn is that they are not alone. This DOC is like a great big continuation of camp, and that is a good thing!
