About This Blog

Type 1 Writes is my personal blog about life as a young adult living with type 1 diabetes in Australia. This includes, but is not limited to personal experiences, stories, advocacy, opinion pieces, news and anything else that may grab my interest.

Type 1 Writes is self funded. All editorial, content, and opinions on this site are my own. I aim to be honest, respectful and credible at all times. I am not qualified to provide any medical treatment, advice or otherwise. I am simply sharing what works for me.

I may accept products, services, invitations or hospitalities from time to time at my own discretion. I disclose all gifts or forms of compensation if I choose to subsequently blog. All content and opinions expressed through this blog are always my own.

Pitches and PR requests are welcome, and can be made through my contact page. Please note that I am based in Australia. I will not respond to any messages that do not have a clear purpose or relevance to this blog.

Diabetes Daily began syndicating Type 1 Writes blog posts as of November 2015. Diabetes Daily does not compensate me for syndicating blog posts, and has no influence over the editorial on this site.

I am also employed as a Freelance Writer for Diabetes Daily as of June 2017. Occasionally I may choose to link to my columns over there, however Diabetes Daily has no influence over the editorial on this site.

Type 1 Writes currently displays advertising on the site through a program called Google Adsense. I don’t actually select any of the ads that are displayed, Google does all of that for me. I do receive a small amount of compensation for the ads displayed on my site, which helps me to cover operational costs such as web hosting and domain registration each year. I do not endorse any of the adverts displayed on this site, nor does advertising have any influence over my writing.
