Default Blog sites of note ADA and Mayo Clinic

For those that are interested - over the last two months a new blog has started and the Mayo Clinic entered the social media world with entries at youtube, twitter, facebook, and some blogs. See the information here: Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media . It basically came into existence the last few days of Sept 2010.

The Mayo Clinic diabetes blog has been in existence for several years and is located here: Diabetes - MayoClinic.com and the diabetes area is here: Diabetes - MayoClinic.com . Be sure to explore the tabs under Diabetes of which the diabetes blog is one.

On Oct 11, 2010, the American Diabetes Association launched their blog written by Gayle Kern from the communications division. It is here: Diabetes Stops Here | Living with diabetes; Inspired to stop it .

So add these to your bookmarks and enjoy.

One blog I always like to go to is Six Until Me. She writes about her daily life with Type 1 and it is very often humorous but sometimes a little sad as well.Diabetes blog - Kerri Morrone Sparling's life with type 1

Good luck, ThoseBackPages. Not that many Type 2 bloggers blog on a daily basis. Some every other week, and several when they feel like blogging. You are welcome to check out the Type 2 bloggers that I have compiled here: The Type 2 Blogger Lists . Some are still very interesting. Tom Ross is one of the bloggers that posts five days a week and he is on the list.

On the other side, Type 1 bloggers are more active and more regular with blogging. Many blog five days a week.
