foxPardon my shouting, but I’m just a wee bit excited at the moment!

This is my “Extra!Extra! Read all about it!” voice.

I just found out that Emergiblog was chosen by for their list of “Best Blogs: 10 Health Web Sites Worth a Click” !

And look who else is there: Amy from Diabetes Mine, Dr. Crippen from NHS Blog Doctor, Dr Lei at Genetics and Health, Mark Myers at Nee Naw and Matthew Holt, from The Health Care Blog.

On any given day I consider it a compliment to have Emergiblog mentioned in the same breath with any of these blogs, but to be with them in this list literally takes my breath away!

I can’t even pretend to be cool about this!

I am thrilled.

So here’s a huge thank you to Dr. Manny Alvarez, Health News Managing Editor of

You made my year!

    Hey Kim,

    Just a quick note to congratulate you on your blog being named one of the Top 10
    Health blogs by Dr. Manny Alvarez at WAY TO GO!

    It took me totally by surprise to have my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog named to that list as well. I’m just a guy that lost a bunch of weight. People like YOU are on the frontlines of health. What an honor!

    Keep up the fantastic work!!!

    Jimmy Moore, author of “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb”

  • […] Perfect timing yet again. Kim at Emergiblog is here today. She and I were both included in’s best health blogs list. But unlike me, she got 30 comments congratulating her! That should tell you what a great person Kim is but this interview should convince you further. […]
