I’ve talked before about volunteering with the National Psoriasis Foundation, especially the One to One peer mentoring program. As a result of my work with the organization, I was invited to the Climb the Hill for a Cure conference in Washington, D.C. It starts Sunday, and I couldn’t be more excited. I get to be involved in workshops on getting my point across (blogging, social and traditional media), the One to One program and psoriasis research.

But even better than that, I get to use my knowledge as a small-town newspaper editor and a blogger with many tens of readers to talk about—you guessed it—getting your point across. And while I’ll definitely be blogging and Tweeting the conference, I want to pick your brains: what do you see as the purpose of your blog in particular and patient blogs in general? Are you an activist offline as well as online? How do you use your blog and social media to raise awareness about your disease and or chronic illness?
