Six Until Me turns Two.

Happy Birthday, Blog!Two years ago this morning, I wrote my first post.  The next day, I wrote another one.  And another.  And another ...

Today marks my second blogging anniversary (blogaversary?) with Six Until Me.  I've been a proud member of this community for two years now, subjecting you guys to my ramblings for seven hundred thirty days.  Three hundred thirty-three posts.  (333? Larry Bird!)  Four thousand, six hundred fifty-eight comments.  That's a sizeable smattering of little Siah Sausage, (mis)adventures with Larry Bird, freelance excursions, laughs, family fun, new career endeavors, relationships, and all these diabetes moments.  You have let me share it all with you, and I am forever thankful.

It's been a true pleasure blogging alongside you guys for the last two years.  Blogging has given voice to some of my deepest, fearful questions and had them comfortingly answered with "Me, too."  It has given me a way to teach my friends and family about diabetes without having to say anything at all.  And it's given me a huge support team with whom I can share my victories, like yesterday when the retinologist shined the light into my eyes, patted me on the shoulder and said, "Kerri, your eyes look excellent.  I can barely see any sign of damage." 

Thank you guys for making blogging such an important and supportive part of my diabetes management.  And thanks for putting up with my silliness for the last two years.

Congrats on two years of blogging! Your blog is one of my top favourites - you're a terrific writer and I look forward to reading many more years of Six Until Me (and that ever-elusive book you're working on! I'll be one of the first in line for a copy of that one :D ).

I find comfort in reading your blog, thinking of my own daughter as she grows up with Type 1.

Keep on bloggin'!

Thank you for sharing your everyday experiences with us--It is soooo nice to know that there are other people out there who really understand what I'm going through. Keep up the GREAT work!

Congratulations on your 2 year blogaversery!!! I am trying to catch up on all of your writing and there is a lot. Have a great weekend--Dave

Your silliness has kept me sane and laughing during some of my most frustrating moments with the 'betes. I'm actually thankful to have been diagnosed during this tech-y, blogerific age. It allows me to have plenty of those "Me, too" moments as well. Thank you, Keri!

Two years? For some reason, I thought you had been doing this longer than right before I started reading!



Happy blirthday! It has been a great pleasure for all of us too!

Great news on the peepers.

Happy blogaversary, Kerri! I'm so glad you're blogging about living with diabetes. Of course, you're the reason I started blogging, so you do have that on your head.... ;)

Happy Anniversary!!!

Two years, w00t. Good for you. That's a huge amount of effort.

Keep on writing.

Happy Anniversary! And thank you for everything you've written. It's always nice to have someone who's experiences you can relate to, even if it is just through a computer screen. Thanks Kerri. :)

Great news on the eyes. Next time you're on the phone with Larry, be sure to thank him.

Thanks for sharing your life, and inspiring others to share theirs.

And, I have to say, I've seen that same flower logo on the back of a jeep that's parked on a street I ride by on my way to work. Each time I ride past it, I wonder whether they're a loyal reader of yours...

Congratulations on the blogiversary and the GREAT eye exam!

Happy two years! Every day when I log onto my computer, you are the first site I go to. I look forward to it every day! Thanks for giving so much to your blog. It has helped me and so many others with diabetes.

Your blog looks very good for its age.

I love reading your blog. Thanks so much for sharing.

Carey - Didn't you hear? Two is the new ... one.

Thanks, everyone! :)

Congrats, Kerri. Nice work! Mine is just over 2 as well... so do you think we're both approaching mid-blog crisis or something? ;)

I'm a new reader of yours but, Kerri,


Does a blog a day keep the Endo at bay?
