For some reason, there’s been a lot of activity on My Diabetes Secret over the past few days. Actually, I should specify, there’s been a lot more activity than normal on My Diabetes Secret.
I keep an eye on the likes and reblogs to make sure I’m doing everything I can to ensure this blog reaches the people who need it most. Yet, for reasons I can’t decipher, the number of new followers has increased at a significant rate. I wish I knew what made this stuff “stick” with the diabetes community on Tumblr. I wish I knew what drives people to share, reblog, engage, and interact. I wish I could figure out why this entire experiment actually, kinda works.
My hope is that every single reblog represents a “me too”, and every single like represents a “I hear ya”. My Diabetes Secret isn’t a place to try and one-up the struggles of others, but the shared emotions are clearly connecting.
