While the rest of the world focuses it’s eyes on this morning’s behavior of Punxatawny Phil (or your own community’s resident groundhog), there’s another celebration going on today.

Today is Rolling in the D‘s first birthday! Or blogiversary. Or whatever you call it.

When I launched this blog on February 2, 2012, I didn’t know what to expect (it was, admittedly, pretty awful at the start). I didn’t know why I was getting into this crazy thing called blogging, or if I would be able to differentiate myself from the many other diabetes-blogs out there. I had no idea if it would last, if I’d be motivated to keep it going, if anyone would care, or if D-blogging was just a silly fad that would go the way of the Macarena. So when I realized I was about to reach the one-year mark, I was in disbelief. I still am. (A longer-than-normal year: leap year, no less!)

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, reading mine, retweeting the “new #dblog” Tweets, and providing the encouragement for me to keep working at my blog about diabetes.  And to keep working at my diabetes as well.

With that said: Year two starts …. NOW!
