The Pulse: Diabetes Awareness Walk

Explanatory: The Pulse is a new weekly series at the Maysville Kentucky Blog where we pull something we found in the blogosphere that relates to Maysville and share it with our readers. For those who don't know, the blogosphere is the term used to describe all blogs as a community or social network. Many weblogs are interconnected; bloggers read others' blogs, link to them, reference them in their own writing, and post comments on each others' blogs. This interconnectedness forms the blogosphere. If the web in its entirety were a fishbowl, the blogosphere would be one incredibly large air bubble in that bowl... or something like that.

This week's Pulse comes from Rachel at MySpace and her blog post is about the Diabetes Awareness Walk that took place on Oct. 14th in Maysville:

We walked with everyone else for 1.3 miles on a paved walkway. Every hundred feet or so there were little signs posted along the path with tidbits about diabetes.
