Why I Blog: A Short Synopsis




I love all of the wonderful D-related tips shared by members of the DOC (including me!). 


The interactions I have had these last few weeks in relation to the blog have reminded me why I started blogging in the first place, and why it's so important to continue. I'll admit I'm not exactly the most punctual blogger, and lord knows my pictures look like a three year old took them. But the real purpose of Nerdy April's Space Adventures is not to update you about the latest Diabetes-related care (there are plenty of amazing blogs out there for that), or to fill up the interwebs with beautifully composed photographs (again, lots of great places to find those). This blog is an avenue to push the boundaries Diabetes creates, to share stories of perseverance (read: the FAA), and to network with those who may be afraid to question the rules and regulations. Sure, I talk about personal struggles and successes, and meaningless nibbles of information, but that only helps to illustrate that I am just like you.

I don't always think about Diabetes, and it isn't always the main event in my life.
