I had this grand idea of doing a pseudo HTML/XML formatted post for this month’s Best ‘Betes Blogs list. Then I tried pasting my final text from notepad into this WYSIWYG editor. Big mistake. After some careful editing, I’m finally ready to present February’s Best. Nominated by you, the people. Selected by me, the procrastinator.
If you click just one of these links, I recommend the <Vlog> Winner, but each one of these posts is truly worth your time.

<Art> Diabetes Art Day – 2013 Gallery
Editors note: This was an audible since it felt wrong to not highlight Diabetes Art Day in the Art category. I’m told I’m allowed to do this once but since there were nominations that included Diabetes Art Dat content, I think we’ll be okay. </Art>

That took longer than expected to curate, but it was well worth it. Thanks for the opportunity to host this month, Sara!
