My blog turns six today.
I’d always been fascinated by blogs. I loved the way they offered a space for writers to share their own daily thoughts, and also the way they offered a space that readers might look forward to visiting every day.
When I first started writing here, I had no real idea what this blog would look like.
There was nothing out there (that I was aware of at the time) that wasn’t medical or professionally geared around diabetes. Especially in Australia. Diabetes just sounded like something that I should write about.
I just wasn’t convinced that anyone would be interested in reading about it.
Joining in Diabetes Blog Week was probably the thing that encouraged me to just write. Not to mention connecting me to so many d-peeps all over the world. I realised it didn’t have to be perfect, it just had to be me.
It’s hard to believe I’ve managed to fill so many of these pages, let alone fill so many of these pages about diabetes.
Honestly, thanks for coming along on this journey with me and for helping to make the great big world around me that little bit smaller.
