I'm Changing My Tune!

Well, it appears that "changing my tune" is a popular theme for the DOC lately.  There was much discussion about the change in tune that JDRF will be making.  In case you missed it, read this article about new president and CEO, Jeffrey Brewer, and JDRF's new direction.

Wendy also changed her tunes on Candy Hearts after a survey revealed that the majority of people prefer to not have music playing in the background while reading a blog post.  She got me thinking about my own playlist on my blog.  You see, I love to hear the music, but I realized that I also "mute" it when I am reading.  So...the first tune I'll be changing is my playlist.  It will still remain on my blog, and you can find it by scrolling down to the bottom of the home page, however, it will no longer play "automatically" when you open my site.  You will have to manually press the play button to hear the music.

But my music playlist is not the only Tune I'm Changing! 

I have also been playing around with the fonts on my blog.  I'm not completely happy, so I'll be fine tuning that as well.

But the real story is about my upcoming blog posts.  You see, I believe that a change is in order.  Boy do I have a treat planned for you!  And I'm not talking about this week's sugar bolus.  (You will have to visit The Princess and the Pump for that!)

We are approaching Ally's 2 year D Anniversary this week.  I have been doing a lot of reflecting.  I realized that it has been almost a year since I started this blog.  My tune has changed since last year and we are approaching our D-Day in a whole new way!

I am a D Mama and I write about my experiences as a "fill in pancreas" for my 7 year old daughter.  Once in a while I mention Ally's thoughts, her actions, in hopes of getting a glimpse inside of her life as a person with type 1 diabetes.  But reality is that I can never completely understand what she goes through, what she feels.  So...I have contacted a couple of very special people with type 1 diabetes.  I have invited them to be guest bloggers for me this week.  I asked them to change my perspective....to help me get a peek inside my sweet daughter's head.  And I promise, they did not let me down!!!  I can't wait to share their insights with all of you!

Stay tuned.....
