First Post of 2009

I’m back.

Being a non-medical blogger in a medblog world, and a confirmed lurker, I knew I’d never have a lot of visitors, so I never worried much about numbers. But when my Sitemeter numbers started showing 2-3 readers a day, I became concerned. Turns out, all I needed to do was install a new Sitemeter code and I was back up to my usual 15 visitors a day. (Thank you regular visitors; y’all are the best!)

After I wrote the post about jumping the shark, I received a few e-mails suggesting that I write more about work and my personal life.

I stopped writing about work because, when I first started blogging, I made the amateur mistake of accessing my blog at work and now I’m not 100% sure someone at work doesn’t read my blog. I’d feel more comfortable writing work-related posts if I knew the people I worked with weren’t reading my blog. But, I’m going to try to post more work related stories. It's not like they don't already know they are arrogant, exasperating asses.

I’m not real comfortable writing about my personal life because that’s just the way I am. Plus, in the beginning, I’d only write about the bf when I was pissed at him, prompting a few comments and e-mails about how I should dump the bum. My posts put a good man in a bad light, and that wasn’t fair to him. But I will try to post more personal stories, mainly about the similarities I see between the practice of law and the practice of medicine, and how occasionally reading the medblogs helps me deal with some of the issues that come up in my personal and professional life.

Now, that wasn't so hard, was it?
