When Sara invited me to host this month I was overwhelmed with joy and felt a great sense of pride. Reading through the nominated posts was warming, entertaining, and just a bucket of fun. Making selections was very challenging because they were all SO SO SO good.
Just after the Super Bowl blow out (go Seahwaks) and in the midst of Diabetes Art Day, I present to you the posts I selected for Best of the Betes Blogs this month:
Best Reference to a D-Celebrity – Katie at Princess of Pavement
Katie is a journalist who was interviewed by a running magazine in Canada. Her story is splashed about the pages and she gets two big big thumbs up for raising diabetes awareness.
Best Post by a Type 2 – Rosie at The Fat Side of the Tracks
There were no nominations for this category, so I am going to point you to a blogger named Rosie (@Rosie_Tomato) that deserves our support. She participates in #dsma every week and has a lot of awesome things to say.
Best Motivational Post – Jen at Young, Fun, and Type 1
Jen celebrates the new year by bringing her awareness and ours to the support people in our lives who make life with D a little better. All good warm feelings.
Best Comments: Jessie from T1D Active Living
I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with Jessie over email, instagram, twitter, and within the blogosphere. She always has something heartfelt to say. She is on our radar!
