Diabetes Blog Week Post#5 - Favorites and Motivations

Diabetes Blog Week Post #6

Click for the Favorites and Motivations - Saturday 5/16 Link List.
If you have been blogging for a while, what is your favorite sentence or blog post that you have ever written?  Is it diabetes related or just life related?  If you are a new blogger and don't have a favorite yet, tell us what motivated you to start sharing your story by writing a blog?  (Thank you Laddie of Test Guess and Go for suggesting this topic.)

My Favorite blog spot I have written was a post that I felt I put a great deal of myself into the blog. It felt incredible to put my words into a blog instead of carrying it around on my shoulders. I tend to do this way too much. I also tend to be incredibly overly critical of myself even when I am doing my best I can. I know discussing complications has really been the most difficult part for me to write but I would not change a thing because I have gotten emails from others struggling with similar issues who say my blog helped them.  My goal of my blog is to make sure others don't feel alone in dealing with Diabetes.

I know I still feel so incredibly proud of this blog. I posted it back in January of this year. I know I worked on it for quite a while before I actually posted it. I know it is one of my favorite blogs this year but after writing blog for three years it is very difficult when I have written 660 blog posts so far. I know I have to say starting my blog has been the best decision for me and I thank everyone has spent time reading mine. I love being part of such an incredible group of people.


  1. Great selection, Tarra! I enjoyed reading that post.

  2. Thanks for sharing that post. I agree that most of us (including me) don't like to talk or read about complications. I guess its like most of the bad things in life - we don't like to talk about getting old or getting sick or getting hurt. But I agree with you in that its important to share these stories, and I think you're extremely brave for sharing and hopefully empowering others in similar positions.

  3. I have to agree it is incredibly difficult to write about. The surprising thing is that sharing you can meet others with similar challenges. I know at times even after three years it can still be difficult to discuss but I will never regret doing so. Thank you for such a nice compliment.
