Veteran diabetes writer David Mendosa, whose comprehensive web site has served as a resourcMendosa_head_shote for so many of us, has joined the ranks of D-bloggers! He's begun writing a Type 2 Blog for a company called Choice Media, which owns Health Central,, HealthScout and hundreds of other web sites. Mendosa will now include much of his previous newsletter content in the new blog. Some of his first entries discuss the Gylcemic Index, Worst Pills, Scams and Quacks, and Alternative Therapies. Check him out. I am adding a link here under "Professional Diabetes Blogs."

Also of note: Allison Blass, who put together the Diabetes OC site (online community), is launching the 1st Annual Diabetes OC Blog Awards. You can vote for your favorites in 10 different categories -- by Dec. 14 -- so lots of us will win! Keep me in mind, ay?
