Watch This Space

As my daily hit count logs attest, my medical-focused posts are a constant thing. The topic keeps cropping up elsewhere, as it will. I was even, a couple years ago, a small part of the effort to get an off-grid medical blog going. (And then my job and PC both crashed, and it took a good bit of time to get things rightside-up again, and others carried on while I faltered.)

Also, I'm selfish, as it provides blog-fodder I don't have to dig too deep to mine, and I'd hate to give it up, but don't want to make my blog only about that. Especially when it takes something like Hillary pretending to be healthy, or 40M Africans and one Kenyan trying to kill us with Ebola to pull my string and make me write repeatedly and predictably.

But I'm coming to the conclusion that it's time to make it a magnum opus effort, and probably not on these pages.

So if I can muster the time, resources, and energy to do so, I may spin off a purely medical-focused blog, and/or see if the old one I was nominally going to be a part of can be successfully resuscitated.

No promises, but...
It seems to be an idea whose time has not only come, but like grandmother's rhubarb crisp, just keeps coming back until it's done. I already get well-paid for my expertise IRL, so this would be purely for love of the exercise.

I'm going to have to ruminate on this, and then science the shit out of it.

>Le sigh.<

I will most certainly dust off a spot on ye olde blogroll for it as soon as I see it!

Would be right on that reading it daily if you get the time!

Yes, p lease do so. Your updates on Ebola (what, 18 or so months ago) were extremely important to us. A medical only blog would be a critical - and highly welcome - addition to the grid-down scenario blogs, silver here, ammo there, instant expert gardening skills everywhere.

My wife is an RN, I have a "sciency" background from military testing and IT/Security for a 3-byte agency. Such a blog would go on the short "hit this daily" list.

Oh, btw, thanks for what you've done so far.
