I am so stoked!
Why? I finally decided to add a forum to the website!!!
I actually added the forum over a week ago but we’ve been testing, experimenting and adding features. We are ready to go LIVE! :)
I won’t go through each of them… most are self explanatory. I do want to mention a few of the more important.
Announcements - read the Forum guidelines first… please.
FAQ’s – Frequently Asked Questions – this category is a “must see” for diabetics in my opinion. Browse the existing questions and feel free to comment.
** If you have a question that is NOT already mentioned… PLEASE ASK IT!
Diabetes News – recent and important news to diabetics will be covered.
** This is my 2nd favorite category. I plan to use this as a ‘mini-blog’ where I can comment on the diabetes news of the day.
Rants / Whines – is there someone or something that irritates you, relating to diabetes care or treatment? Blow off some steam here.
** It will be no surprise to many of you … this category is my favorite. Like the category above, this will be a ‘mini-blog’ where I can rant about the state of diabetes care today…and those who affect it.
Recipes – post your favorite recipes! Please include links if you are using someone’s recipe.
The main reasons I am excited about the forum?
A) People will have a place to ask questions and read answers from people who are successfully treating their diabetes. This is not theory that has been tainted by greed, laziness or ignorance… this is tested and ‘battle ready’.
B) I see the forum as a means to obtain feedback from people, to see the questions and problems that they are dealing with. Obviously if one person has a question, there are likely to be many more who have that question as well.
Your participation, your feedback is crucial to this project.
If you have a question … please ask it in the forum.
If you have comments or suggestions… feel free to add them.
Hope to see you on the forum!
