HI, MY NAME IS…Kima Cardy
MY TWITTER HANDLE IS.. @my_betes
MY BLOG URL IS…mybetes.com
I’M FROM…. London
ASIDE FROM BLOGGING, I ENJOY… cooking, pilates, walking my King Charles
I’M CURRENTLY WATCHING… Game of Thrones, Grey’s Anatomy & Louis Theroux
I’M CURRENTLY READING… The Etymologicon. It’s about the origin of words and sayings and absolutely fascinating. Each chapter is nice and short and focusses on a different group of words, so I can pick it up whenever I have some spare time. Which is perfect for me, as I’m really bad at making the time to read.
I GOT STARTED BLOGGING IN… March 2015, so I’m still a newbie.
I BLOG ABOUT… Type 1 diabetes, food and wellbeing
I MOSTLY BLOG AT… Home or write drafts on my phone on the tube or during my lunch break
WHEN I’M BLOGGING I LISTEN TO… Sia, Ed Sheeran, First Aid Kit, James Bay or nothing at all.
MY FAVOURITE SNACK/DRINK WHILE BLOGGING IS… Fruit tea/mint tea.
IF I HAD A BLOGGING SUPERPOWER, IT WOULD BE… the ability to automatically have my thoughts typed out. I often think of how I want to phase things when I’m driving or just about to fall asleep.
IF I COULD INTERVIEW ANYONE ON MY BLOG, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE… someone who was diagnosed with type one diabetes before modern technology – disposable syringes, synthetic insulin, blood testing monitors, insulin pumps etc – revolutionised how we control diabetes today.
IF I COULD RECORD A VLOG WITH SOMEONE FAMOUS IT WOULD BE… Sir Steve Redgrave – Olympic athlete, Type one diabetic and Honorary Vice President of Diabetes UK
OTHER BLOGS I GET INSPIRATION FROM ARE… texting my pancreas, diabetesalicious
I LOVE BLOGGING BECAUSE…I find the process very cathartic. It’s incredibly rewarding to receive messages from other diabetics who have benefited from reading about my experiences.
