I think one of the best parts of Diabetes Blog Week was finding blogs that I had never read before. I really wanted to keep that idea going so I emailed George to talk about bringing back an idea we had first started thinking about over a year ago.
I have seen this idea work it in other blogging communities and I am excited to bring it to the diabetes online community. Each month George and I will take turns hosting the “Best of the ‘Betes Blogs” awards.
How does it work?
Here are the categories:
Best Use of Humor
Best Use of Photography
Best Reference to a D-Celebrity
Best Story of a D Meet-up
Best non-D Related Post
Best Post by a Type 1
Best Post by a Type 2
Best Post by a Type Awesome
Best Post by a LADA/ Type 1.5/ Not otherwise specified
Best story of a D-mistake
Best Motivational Post
As you read blogs during the month, take note of any posts that you think are a perfect example of one of the categories (please no self-nominations). From the 21st to the 28th of each month email firstname.lastname@example.org with your nominations for the “best of”.
A nomination would look something like this
Sara (include link to blog if you have one) nominates Sprinkles for the Best Story of a D-Mistake (link to the specific post you are nominating on Sprinkles’ blog)
Then on the 1st of the month visit BestBetesBlogs.com to see the winners.
Nominations for June posts start tomorrow!!!!
