The Effect of Linkage on the Medical Blogosphere as it Relates to New Websites


You expected a peer-reviewed dissertation on the above topic?

Nah, I just wanted to remind everyone who links to Emergiblog to make sure that they have reset their links to www.emergiblog.com.

Now that I have both Technorati and the TTLB ecosystem recognizing the new web address, the links only count if they come directly here.

And please check out my link list. If you are not there it is probably an oversight, which can be easily rectified.

As James Lileks likes to say, thanks! And I appreciate your patronage!

Oh, as you can see, the above shot comes from Stuff On My Cat probably the funniest site for cat photos on the web. We’re talking “laugh out loud” funny. If you love cats, that is!

Although, if it weren’t for the stethoscope I might have thought this cat was dressed as the Pope!

    Heyas 🙂 I changed your link on my site. Would you mind tossing me one? I’m still taking pre-reqs, but I hope to start a program soon 🙂 Thanks!!

    Thank you for your kind comment! I have been a reader of yours for quite some time now, and have blogrolled you already (some time ago; I hope you don’t mind me not asking!). Of course you may link to the site. It would be an honor, actually!

    Feel free to stop by whenever you like. I would have to say that I try to keep my blog upbeat, but every now and then, that “poignancy” comes through. You just can’t get around it with a sick child…or perhaps a rough night in the ER?

    (BTW: I love Journey too–I think my parents played it when I was sleeping in my crib–osmosis or something!)

    The link is corrected on my blog after two attempts! Blogger didn’t save it the first time, even though I verified when going back that it was correct on the template. Weird…one of the reasons you left Blogger, ay?!

    Love your new look. You have been updated. Would you consider linking to me either as a caregiver of a patient or as nurse practotioner?

    I’m a big fan of Stuff on my Cat!

    I like the look of the new site, and will update the link as soon as I get back to my template!

    I enjoy reading your site as a fairly new nurse who just transferred into the ED…

    If you have a moment, I would appreciate a link as well!
