In the past week, I've had three random e-mails sent to the account linked to this blog. Each of them contains a link to a website, and asks me to 'evaluate their site' and consider adding them to my blogroll. I find this odd. As flattering as I find it to be included on sites that I admire (Flea and Charity Doc come to mind) and as much as I strive to someday be included on the sidebar at Mr. Hassle's Long Underpants, it would never occur to me to contact a blogger to ask to be included. Is this how people boost their hit count? Does this mean I have 'arrived' as a blogger? It would be nice to think so, but since I've never had such a request before and now have received three in short order, I have to suspect that it might simply be spam.
On the other hand, I'd like to officially introduce a couple of friends of mine to the world of blogging. Dr. H is an anaesthesia resident, her husband, Dr. J is a family physician currently doing locums in the far north. I've been enjoying their stories for awhile now, and I think that others would as well. Check them out at Adventures in Medicine.
Also, look out for yours truly in an upcoming issue of The Medical Post. I don't know exactly when it will be coming out, but I was interviewed last month for an article on physician bloggers. Hopefully, they'll make me sound somewhat intelligent.
