Best diabetes health blogs for the year

Alan_s's blog was included in the article below about the Best Diabetes Blogs for 2013. Congratulations Alan.

I appreciate the time and effort you put into helping others with diabetes.

They must not have seen LizzyLou's Diabetes Lounge because I think it belongs on the list as well.

Thanks Ruth.

 

I'm pretty new to the blog world only being up for a little over a year, and don't spend a lot of time advertising.  I guess I should but other things usually take my time.

Re: Best diabetes health blogs for the year

Am I missing something? 


When I try to follow the link, I get only what looks like a title page, with no slideshow. I wonder if my AdBlock Plus software that filters out lots of advertisements and pop-ups is preventing me from seeing the details on the healthline.com page.

Molly,
I just tried the link on my iPad and it worked and got me to the slideshow.

Thanks for checking.

 

I tried disabling the ad blocking for that page, and the slide show appeared.  Rarely have I seen AdBlock filter out anything I really wanted to see.
