I’m in Barcelona for the 2nd Animas European Bloggers Summit. Diabetes bloggers from Italy, the UK, Germany and Norway as well as throw ins from the US and Australia have come together to talk about how we use our blogs to communicate with the diabetes online community.

Being surrounded by such an amazing crew of folks with diabetes is energising. Hearing about how we reach people, why we write and the value of peer support reinforces (yet again) the strength of this community.

The Animas European Bloggers Summit is an initiative of Johnson & Johnson. J&J funded my travel and accommodation so I could attend the Summit as well as my registration to the EASD conference. There was no expectation from J&J that I would write about my attendance. But I will be because I’m a sharer!
