I need your input.

I have been contacted by Health Central's Diabeteens to write a blog for their site. I responded to the email asking for more details, and I am seriously considering accepting the opportunity. The biggest problem is I don't know what I would do with this blog. I would probably maintain this site with more personal diabetes and general life related things. Which would allow the Diabeteens blog to be more about general issues that arise as a teen with Type 1 Diabetes kind of thing. Really I'm concerned that I won't be able to provide enough content for both. I love this blog and the community support that I have here, but this website is a wonderful opportunity. Also I'm not really sure if I'm cut out for the whole writing on a real live people actually see this kind of website. I don't know! So D-OCers, I trust that you will provide some sort of incredible wisdom on this topic.

Go for it! There's one blogger out there who only talks about his 6-year-old kid. ALL THE TIME! I mean, enough already! Would be nice to hear a different perspective. Congrats on the opportunity.

I think it would be a fun opportunity for you, as long as you are able to post at your own pace (rather than be required to do a certain number per month/week, whatever).

It won't hurt to try it. Better yet, you may reach/teach someone who is lost and that would be very cool.
I think your writing style is great. You are honest in your blog and other teens would appreciate that.

Congratulations!

I think it would be wonderful if your writing could reach a larger audience. I say try it and see how it goes...
