For almost two years I have been trying my best to blog everyday, when I opened this site I never thought that I would have the followers that I do. My goal was to try and help other cyclists that live with diabetes, I had a very tough year trying to figure out how to race a road bike with diabetes. I had a great support system but no one that could tell me exactly how to race and keep my blood sugars above 100.
As time has gone on I hope that my writing has gotten better but I also hope that my blog gives everyone living with diabetes a little bit of hope, hope that they can do amazing things with diabetes, and that they aren't the only ones that have odd low symptoms or any odd diabetes feelings. What I have gotten from this web site/blog is a new addiction. You can ask Leanne but I have never complained about having to write in two years, that is because of all of the people that check in on the web site day in and day out. When I sign in to the website I am presented with a graph of the past month, this graph shows me how many visitors go to the site each day. It has been amazing how the number has grown in two years and what subjects get more visitors. As I often say I'm very OCD so when I see a spike I make a note that what I wrote about is felt by a lot of other people and that I should revisit that subject again. It is almost like a second job but it is nothing like a job to me and that is what I love.
I love all of the support that the visitors provide. I love receiving emails telling me that they just ran a mile because of something I wrote. The amazing thing is the suggestions that you the readers make, I have learned so much from so many. I now know that Smarties taste ten times better than glucose tabs and do the same thing and I know that it is always important to have money with you on a run or bike ride just incase you run out of food while exercising. I hope that this blog continues to help so many and I want to thank everyone in advance for all that they do for me, I may write each night but the diabetes community is stronger than ever and that what makes so many great diabetes blogs possible.
