Starting a blog is easy. But maintaining a blog costs time and effort. Especially when having a job/while studying (and having a private life as well).
This blog almost celebrates its 4th year (February 2012).
I’m happy to notice that many established (bio)medical & library blogs, that inspired me to start blogging, are still around.
All these blogs are still going strong.
The same is true for the blog ScienceRoll by Bertalan Mesko (emphasis on health 2.0), that celebrated its 5th anniversary last month. That same month Sterile Eye (Life, death and surgery through a lens) celebrated its 4th year of existence.
This month Highlight Health (main author Walter Jessen) celebrates its 5th year anniversary.
And the nice thing is that Highlight Health celebrates this with prize pack giveaways.
There are 4 drawings. Each prize pack consist of the following:
- A one-year subscription to ResearchSaves Magazine.
- A one-year subscription to NIH MedlinePlus magazine.
- A paperback copy of Don’t Cross Your Eyes … They’ll Get Stuck That Way.
- A hardcover copy of Smart Medicine: How the Changing Role of Doctors Will Revolutionize Health Care.
- A Webicina T-shirt (e-patient or a web-savvy physician).
All you have to do is to subscribe to the blog in the form of an email alert. People, like me, who are already subscribers are also eligible to participate in the drawings. (see this post for all info)
With so many ’golden oldies’ around, I wonder about you, my audience. Do you blog? And if you do, for how long? Please tell me in the poll below.
If you are a (bio)medical, library or science blogger (blogging in English), I would appreciate if you could fill in this spreadsheet as well. You are free to edit the spreadsheet and add names of other bloggers as well.
