Don’t know where to start looking for blogs?

As you look for cancer blogs, remember there are many different types of blogs (community, solo, institutional, advocacy). In addition, people who blog about cancer blog about much more than cancer. Their lives are regular lives, just sometimes they also write about cancer. It may be helpful to you to search their posts for the tag “cancer,” or you may prefer to situate their writing about cancer in the context of their broader and more mundane lives. I’d love for you to find a blog in whatever way you’d like, but here are some starting points if you feel lost:
