Weekly Round-Up

Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and that I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget that if you have written a post that you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

As a patient advocate just starting to find her voice, I joined Twitter during its early days, when it was still a nurturing and inviting space. Most of the amazing people and connections I’ve met over the last 14 years came from Twitter. It’s no exaggeration to say my work has been influenced by these connections, and my life has been enriched by the friendships I’ve made there.

I’m saddened and dismayed at what Twitter has become over the last few years, especially in the past month when its decline has been accelerated by the new owner. Increasingly, it seems like it’s time to move on, but what’s next? I may be ready to give up on Twitter, but I am far from ready to give up on the connections I’ve made, the lessons I’m still learning, and the collaborations I’ve yet to create. This is why Sue Robins new community excites me and gladdens my heart so much For health advocates like me, looking for a space to grow and connect with others, I encourage you to check out this new community.

Now let’s see what else has been happening in the blogosphere this week.

Exciting news from Becky who has released her memoir about breast cancer on Amazon.

Chris shares a cancer story from Australia.

Terri has some helpful tips for getting through the holidays when you have cancer.

Barbara also has a Christmas-themed post for us this week.

Finally this week, it feels like the round-up has been a little light on posts over the past few weeks. Please do let me know if I am missing any blogs that should be included here.

Until next week,

Yours with much love always
