Tell us a little bit about why you write about your health online and what got you started.Apparently I saw the future, sub-consciously, so I've already written something that would fit into this category. I wrote it for my "About the Blog" section of this page, and I can't find a better way to word a response to the prompt, so here it is!
This blog was originally made when I was in sixth grade, in 2009. I was inspired to make a blog because my dad introduced me to Lee Ann's blog. In fact, I couldn't come up with a name, so I tried to call my blog "The Butter Compartment," as well. My dad then explained to me that using that name was stealing and that I needed to come up with my own blog name. After much thought, I came up with "Insulin Pens Don't Have Ink." I called my blog this because I had just made the decision to try insulin pens, rather than using my pump. Soon, I shut my blog down because I was only reading two blogs at the time, (Now I am reading tons of blogs, check them out here.) and I was discouraged because only a few people reading my blog. (Views were not why I started my blog; I just didn't have any inspiration for posts.) A few years later, I realized that I wanted to blog again, so I made this blog and used the same title, even though I am back on my pump. I've been blogging since my sister was diagnosed with diabetes, and I haven't turned back! Today, I write because I want to show other people that diabetes doesn't have to be just a burden, it can bring a little bit of good to their life, as well.
Well, that is it for today; stay tuned for tomorrow's post!
