Best of the Betes’ Blog

By | December 1, 2014

Due to the holiday the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs post is a few days later (Sara, don’t kill me).  We are honored to host December’s Best of the Betes’ Blogs and look forward to reading blogs from the community that inspires a lot of what we do, here at DCAF.

If you are not familiar with the Best of the ‘Betes Blogs here is a little background from Sara (Co-creator) .

Sara: I think one of the best parts of Diabetes Blog Week was finding blogs that I had never read before. I really wanted to keep that idea going so I emailed George to talk about bringing back an idea we had first started thinking about way back (!) in 2010. I have seen this idea work it in other blogging communities and we are excited to bring it to the diabetes online community. As of February 2012 the hosting rotates around the diabetes online community.

How does it work?

Here are the categories:

Best Use of Humor
Best Vlog
Best Recipe
Best Use of Photography
