Viagra For Women

Viagra for women push-lucynurseThe week after BlogHer09 was exhausting.

Viagra for women I had traveled across the country two weekends in a row, viagra for women and was working 12-hour shifts in-between (and after) to make up the time I had taken off. Viagra for women I was doing some writing and had two articles due on a deadline.

Viagra for women Plus, viagra for women it was my week to host Grand Rounds. Viagra for women Lots of stuff on my plate and if I wasn’t sleeping or working, viagra for women I was glued to the computer (not that there is anything wrong with that…).

Viagra for women So on Monday, viagra for women as I finished Grand Rounds and was ready to hit the sack before working the night shift, viagra for women I noticed a link had been made to Emergiblog from Grunt Doc. Viagra for women I checked it out and it was a “Happy Blogiversary” note.

Viagra for women Oh geeze – Emergiblog WAS four years old on August 3rd and the date had totally slipped my mind! “Wow!” I thought, viagra for women along with (a) Grunt Doc keeps track of that stuff? and (b) how nice of him to mention it, viagra for women I’ll have to leave a comment saying “thanks”.

Viagra for women The next morning I got home and, viagra for women as is my wont, viagra for women I hit the computer. Viagra for women The “Google Alert” for Emergiblog was in my mailbox and I opened it. Viagra for women Holy cow! There were a bazillion links! My first thought was “oh geeze, viagra for women what did I do now?”

Viagra for women Well, viagra for women they were all “Happy Anniversary” posts (including a video from Mike at Dr. Viagra for women Anonymous and a hilarious post by Dr. Viagra for women Rob!)! I nearly fell over! I guess Shane, viagra for women official “web guy” of Emergiblog, viagra for women had mentioned the date to a few bloggers. Viagra for women It was like coming home to a virtual surprise party!

Viagra for women (Confirmation of date confusion: fourth anniversary and the beginning of my fifth year of blogging.)

Viagra for women Many, viagra for women many thanks to all who posted best wishes! I was touched and had a lump in my throat more than once.

Viagra for women A special thank you to Shane who keeps Emergiblog working smoothly no matter how many widgets I ask him to place (and I’m the queen of widgets!), viagra for women handles my ads and still answers all my questions after four years running.

Viagra for women It goes without saying that this blog would be a web page in the dark if it were not for the folks who read it, viagra for women so

Viagra for women For all the support, viagra for women encouragement, viagra for women commenting (pro AND con) and reading – thank you!


And now for some fun Emergiblog facts (courtesy of my SiteMeter, viagra for women you can see it at the bottom): as of today, viagra for women August 5th, viagra for women 2009….

Average daily number of visitors: 433

Total visitors over life of blog: 470, viagra for women516 (some perspective on this: NHS Blog Doctor did 500, viagra for women000 in six months!)

Number of page views: 1, viagra for women026, viagra for women888

Most visits by web page (top three): Crass Pollination, viagra for women the twitter feed for Bojustbo and Code Blog (thanks, viagra for women guys! : D You can bet I’m right up there on your reader lists, viagra for women too!)

Top three search words: “Emergiblog”, viagra for women “Nurse Jackie” (!), viagra for women “pain scale 1-10” (I cannot believe “Kasey Kahne” did not make the list…)


Now for just some plain old facts:

My blog fathers: Hugh Hewitt and James Lileks

Number of posts: 805 (whoa, viagra for women that averages out to .55 posts per day, viagra for women 16.7 per month, viagra for women 201 per year!)

Number of comments: 7, viagra for women068

Number of times comments blocked: once (It was my Nurse Jackie post. Viagra for women I mean, viagra for women I can only take being called a “turkey-on-a-high-horse” so many times : D)

My first link: Circadiana, viagra for women by Coturnix (aka Bora!) on August 16th, viagra for women 2005 to this post (originally posted to my old blogspot site).

Number of lattes consumed during blogging: 4, viagra for women397, viagra for women777 (okay, viagra for women I exaggerate)

Number of times I hosted Grand Rounds: 5 (if I counted correctly, viagra for women themes have been Wallace and Gromit, viagra for women the Beatles, viagra for women Nascar, viagra for women Starbucks and the Emergency Room)


My totally worst experience blogging EVER: My first Grand Rounds (March of 2006) at the old blogspot.com site (which seems to have not made the transition over to this url). Viagra for women I was almost done. Viagra for women There had to be 70 submissions, viagra for women at least (I may increase the number every time I tell the story). Viagra for women It was late Monday night.

I lost the post. Viagra for women Suddenly it was gone! It disappeared. Viagra for women Vanished off the face of the internets. Viagra for women

I started again, viagra for women clicked to save the post and it vanished.

Now I am frantic. Viagra for women One is never late with Grand Rounds. Viagra for women I found out the post was too long for Blogger to handle, viagra for women but managed to get it up somewhere around 0400 or 0500 that Tuesday morning. Viagra for women (Pic thanks to Rita at Supporting Safer Healthcare! From back in 2006!)

I decided right then and there that I would leave Blogger and get my own domain. Viagra for women I do believe that was when Shane entered the picture and this version of Emergiblog was born after that, viagra for women with my own domain name and, viagra for women may god bless, viagra for women a WordPress format!

And never looked back…..until now.

    I still have the captioned photo I sent you after the March 2006 Grand Rounds/Blogger debacle – I’ll email it to you again for your “memories” collection. 🙂

    Happy belated anniversary Kim! If I’d had a blog I’d have left you a note too because August 4th is my anniversary: I’ve been working as a nurse for one year. I might not have made it if not for you. I wrote a paper in nursing school about e-mentoring and how I was finding support and encouragement through reading the blogs of other nurses. Anyway, I can’t possibly thank you enough for C-o-S and for connecting me with other blogging nurses who dispense invaluable advice for nurses and nursing students. You are the best!

    Happy Blogiversary! Wow… That went by fast! I remember when I was just a “neurotic nursing student” and started reading your blog. Your support helped me get through a lot! Congrats and keep up the wonderful work…
