Facebook and A New Look

I’ve decided to update the look of this page (I’m entitled to do so!  See “I’m New Here” on the right) to a different theme.  While the previous theme was crisp and clean, I also felt it was somewhat cold.  This new look, I believe, is a bit warmer and more inviting.  But I’m Still New Here, so things may continue to change as I refine the blog and try to develop a readership.  A few days ago, I also updated the banner at the top of the page.

Also, ROTD now has a Facebook page!  “Like” us on Facebook and new posts will get delivered to your newsfeed, automatically.  Of course, you can also get updates via RSS or through old-fashioned e-mail.  (e-mail old-fashioned?  what does that make snail-mail?).  Maybe one day I’ll join Twitter, once I learn how to express my thoughts in 140 characters or less.  Meanwhile, you can also share what you see here by hovering over the “Share” button at the bottom of each post.

A Proper Introduction

Me and my D-stuff

Hi there!  My name is Scott.  I’m had Type 1 diabetes since 1981 and have lived with it for over 30 years.  I was born and raised in New Jersey, and after stints in Philadelphia and New York, have recently returned to the Garden State with my wonderful wife and two sons.

By trade, I’m an engineer.  At one time, it seemed like a good idea, but it’s actually quite dull.  As I’ve grown, I’ve found that the technology that allows us to communicate over machines isn’t quite as interesting as the things that we have to say.  So while working with machines is still what pays the bills, writing and interacting with people is what I really enjoy.  First was Facebook, then  Now I’ve decided to try my luck at blogging.  So here I am, blog powered by WordPress, blogger powered by MiniMed, to bring you all the interesting stories, observations, and opinions that I can.
