Ever wonder what we did before the internet?
You’re looking at it.
The Dewey Decimal System.
If you have to look it up, you’re too young to remember it.
Let’s put it this way: it gave Kerri at Six Until Me a nightmare.
A nightmare that became the theme for this week’s Grand Rounds!
Melvil Dewey would be proud!
I’d like to thank Scrubs Gallery for their continued support of Emergiblog. You guys rock, and the site gets better and better!
The Healthcare Today site is growing fast! I’m proud to be in the company of some pretty heavy hitting bloggers over there, and you can easily sign up.
Then, you can submit your own posts to the headlines and vote on those already there. It’s not only a quick look at the blogosphere topics, but mainstream media links as well.
Find an article you like? Submit it for all of us to see.
It’s easy to read, easy to navigate and easy to submit anything you find interesting.
Something I found just a few minutes ago was a post from Clinical Cases and Images: Does Michael Phelps Have Marfan Syndrome? If not for Healthcare Today, I may have missed an interesting look at a phenomenal athlete.
You may have noticed the Johnson and Johnson widget on the sidebar. This connects directly to the J&J Health Channel on You Tube with Dr. Nancy Snyderman.
The topics are varied and interesting, so do check them out.
And of course a HUGE thanks to J&J for sponsoring the medbloggers at BlogWorldExpo! The nursing profession is very lucky to have such a wonderful corporate supporter!
There is some furniture rearrangement going on at Emergiblog.
Apps are coming and going…
It all stems from BlogHer08. Lots of internet folks there with new things to try.
Yedda is an interesting app. You sign up and then folks ask you questions based on your stated areas of expertise/interest. I guess not too many people are interested in nursing, ERs or Jeff Scott Soto, because I’ve not gotten a single question.
Check it out if you are interested in learning more. Heck, you can even ask me a question!
Adoptic is an app in beta that I am looking at closely.
You sign up and join “communities”. Snippets of posts from those communities show up on your sidebar (as you can see here on Emergiblog) and your posts show up on other sites in the community, giving your blog more exposure.
You pick which posts to promote and which communities you belong to.
I belong to the entrepreneur, literature and writing, science and health communities, so the snippets you see on this blog will be related to one of those four areas.
And, it’s not too late to get those Change of Shift submission in! I’ll be putting it together tomorrow (along with getting the youngest ready for college – who needs sleep anyway?), so get those last minute submission in via the contact button or the Blog Carnival submission button.
PS – I’m on Twitter now! Yes, I have joined the Twitter Twiteration! I’m there under “Emergiblog” so if you’d like to follow me (or would like me to follow you), come on over!
