We are pleased to announce that The Diabetes Self-Management Blog has won two 2007 Diabetes O.C. Blog Awards: “Best Blog,” and “Best Diabetes News Blog.” These distinctions are especially meaningful to us because they have been awarded by the very people we exist to serve: our readers. Many thanks to all who took the time to vote.
The complete list of winners is available at The Official Diabetes O.C. Web site. It includes several blogs that we have linked to in our “What We’re Reading” series, including Six Until Me, Diabetes Mine, David Mendosa’s Blog, and Diabetes Daily. We are very glad to be recognized in such good company.
The Diabetes Self-Management Blog strives to be a resource for people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, people who have had diabetes for a long time and are truly self-care experts, people have just been diagnosed and are trying to get a handle on the whole thing, and everyone in between. Our unique format, featuring a post from a different blogger each weekday, allows our readers to read about (and respond to) stories of daily life from people with diabetes, tips and advice from health-care professionals, and the latest diabetes news and research developments.
In addition to our readers, we thank our intrepid bloggers, Amy Campbell, Jan Chait, Joe Nelson, and Andy Stuckey, for their consistently good work. We also thank The Diabetes O.C. for organizing the awards and the most comprehensive directory of diabetes blogs on the Internet.
