As I was first beginning makingallthingsnew, I spent a lot of time checking out the blogs which focused on diabetes. There’s one blog that had been around a long time, and I went through all his old posts looking to see how we addressed the various aspects of this disease.
I liked most of what I read, but I was surprised at all the pharmaceutical ads on the site. Then, in one of his posts, I learned that there had been a big diabetes blogger convention (who would have thought the pool was large enough to have a convention?) down in Florida. The blogger mentioned how wonderful it had been to participate in this all expense paid gathering. If you’re wondering who paid the expenses, it was a major pharmaceutical company. Big surprise.
