I still maintain that I don’t need to be the person to direct the mob on this one, but there was enough of a push to gauge interest so here we are.
For those of you new to the fun, I had the idea of a “Check-In Day” last year, and I think it went well. The objective for this was not based in metrics. This isn’t about pageviews, or clicks, or referrals, or anything like that.
I like the idea of a check-in day because it helps remind members of the diabetes community of the size and scope of what all of this is. It’s another way to reaffirm the notion that we aren’t alone. It’s an opportunity to say “Hi. I read this. Thank you.”
And, it’s a great way to connect with people new to the diabetes community and discover blogs new to the Internet.
So what do you think, eager-readers? Is this something you’d be up for? We can set a date later, but if we drum up enough momentum are you game to comment on every single diabetes blog you read for one day?
Remember, a comment can be as simple as writing “Check!” on our day of fun. Sharing posts with #dblogcheck on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, Pinterest? will help everyone find other blogs, too. Yes, it can be a lot of work, but I think it’s worth the time and energy.
Unrelated. Instagram filters do wonder for our aquarium.
Have a nice weekend.

I’m game! I appreciated last year’s as a blogger because I see page views, but without any feedback I wonder I’m making a difference for anyone.
I know, I know, THIS isn’t the day for the actual “Check!” I’m just making sure my comment muscles still work…
I did love this day! Glad to do it again!
Sorry I didn’t respond before now. I’m totally supportive of this idea again. I love commenting on other’s blogs because it makes me feel good too. And I’m all for discovering new people. So let’s do it!
