Generic Viagra Online

Generic viagra online push-lucynurseThe week after BlogHer09 was exhausting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Generic viagra online (Confirmation of date confusion: fourth anniversary and the beginning of my fifth year of blogging.)

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

Generic viagra online 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!), generic viagra online handles my ads and still answers all my questions after four years running.

Generic viagra online 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, generic viagra online so

Generic viagra online For all the support, generic viagra online encouragement, generic viagra online commenting (pro AND con) and reading – thank you!


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

Average daily number of visitors: 433

Total visitors over life of blog: 470, generic viagra online516 (some perspective on this: NHS Blog Doctor did 500, generic viagra online000 in six months!)

Number of page views: 1, generic viagra online026, generic viagra online888

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

Top three search words: “Emergiblog”, generic viagra online “Nurse Jackie” (!), generic viagra online “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, generic viagra online that averages out to .55 posts per day, generic viagra online 16.7 per month, generic viagra online 201 per year!)

Number of comments: 7, generic viagra online068

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

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

Number of lattes consumed during blogging: 4, generic viagra online397, generic viagra online777 (okay, generic viagra online I exaggerate)

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


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

I lost the post. Generic viagra online Suddenly it was gone! It disappeared. Generic viagra online Vanished off the face of the internets. Generic viagra online

I started again, generic viagra online clicked to save the post and it vanished.

Now I am frantic. Generic viagra online One is never late with Grand Rounds. Generic viagra online I found out the post was too long for Blogger to handle, generic viagra online but managed to get it up somewhere around 0400 or 0500 that Tuesday morning. Generic viagra online (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. Generic viagra online I do believe that was when Shane entered the picture and this version of Emergiblog was born after that, generic viagra online with my own domain name and, generic viagra online may god bless, generic viagra online a WordPress format!

And never looked back…..until now.

    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…
