Miscellaneous Blog Matters

I haven’t had much time to take care of blog matters lately, so this post is dedicated to blog housekeeping. Well, mostly it’s just me patting myself on the back.

Thank You Notes

I’m a little late with these thank you notes.

After about nine months of blogging, I finally received one of those blogging awards. Amanda at Its All About the Walls awarded me the Rockin' Girl Blogger award and SeaSpray at It’s a Wonderful Life awarded me the Rockin Blogger Award. Thank you ladies. Seasprout is so sweet and she wrote some really nice things about me. Amanda, well, she just questioned whether I was really a woman. That’s okay, Amanda, I don’t hold grudges. Just be prepared to be tagged with every meme I come across during my travels through the blogosphere.

And thanks to Patient Anonymous and Dr. Dino for awarding me the Schmooze Award. Receiving this award was really a pleasant surprise. I didn't think that lurkers were eligible to be schmoozers. If not for Dr. Dino, I would only have 5 readers instead of my current readership of 15. PA has been around from almost the beginning and leaves funny comments whenever she drops by. Thank you both.

My Blog is Unusual

Since I am singing my own praises tonight, I’ll go ahead and tell y’all about how ATM was linked by Readers and Writers Blog, a blog described as “a nonprofit website intended to give writers a place to publish their work at no cost and readers a chance to read that work and, if they choose, to comment on it. We also seek out well-written sites and post them on our blogroll” (emphasis added).

Now don’t go getting all excited for me. ATM wasn’t added to the blogroll, it was just linked because the blog author thought it was unusual:
By the way, one of the more unusual sites I found on the Bohemian road nurse’s blogroll was Addicted to Medblogs, whose author describes herself as “a bored attorney who spends too much time reading (medical blogs) at work.”

I certainly can’t argue with that. Thank you for the mention.

Blog That Made Me Laugh Out Loud At Work

To be honest, I never paid much attention to the pharmacist behind the counter, but now I feel kind of funny each time I walk by. I’ll warn you now, if you are sensitive or lack a sense of humor, avoid FastFoodPharmacy. It has become my “go to” medblog when I get tired of my own bitching and want to read someone else’s bitching. And I mean that in the nicest way.

Calendar Doc Update

I promise it will be up next week. I just haven't had time to work on it much lately.

As always, thank y'all for stopping by.

Note to JMB: I didn't delete this one on purpose. I tried to get technical and put those Rockin Blogger pics in the post but it came out all wrong. So you didn't really miss anything. I'm just not as good as you and Carver are at fancy picture posting.


Amanda said...

I am in such deep doo-doo over that, aren't I?

I wasn't so much questioning that you were a girl as trying to be careful in case I'd screwed up and you WEREn't a girl.

But hell, meme me away. Since I begged, nay, insisted upon being tagged for a meme by you once, I can only say I asked for it :)

Medblog Addict said...

Okay, it's going to be a regular feature of my blog now--"Amanda Get Meme'd" Whenever I see a meme, I'm going to meme you. And that doesn't mean I have to be meme'd first, that means all I have to do is SEE a meme on a blog and its yours. hehehe

Carver said...

I can hardly wait for Dr. August. My inner Mrs. Robinson is excited about the naked pictures. No I don't mean that. I'm no fun at all. I remembered a friend's son recently started med school and now I'm feeling all icky for saying that. But Johnny Depp is closer to my age than my daughter's as I remind her from time to time. If Dr. August looks like . . . I'll stop while I'm behind. By the way, I crashed my blog's first few weeks getting the hang of photo posting. Cheers, Carver

Carver said...

PS I realized my comment was geared towards a male Dr. August (with my reference to Johnny Depp). I guess I shouldn't assume that the shy Dr. August who on retrospect I realize you said would be in scrubs, not half naked, would be a male. I am bad about needing a PS, but I won't do a PPS.

Medblog Addict said...

Carver--thanks for stopping by. You were correct to assume that they would be male. The whole purpose of the calendar was to have an excuse to post pics of half-nekkid men. Of course, there will be an occasional exception.

SeaSpray said...

Fully dressed men? As in blue scrubs?

Glad you liked the nomination. You really did encourage the shy girl, baby blogger I was to continue.

Amanda get memed - LOL! You could even google memes or even better ...make some up! Sorry Amanda - :)

Anonymous said...

OMG Seasprout! Don't get her started on making up memes!!!! Remember, she's a lawyer . . . ;o)

SeaSpray said...

I don't know DP..I think this could be entertaining. :)

Another one with the SeaSprout! LOL!

Mauigirl said...

MBA, congratulations on your well-deserved awards! And I'm eagerly awaiting Mr. August.

Anonymous said...

Oh Amanda...oh Amanda...

Thanks for the mention MBA! and did I read that correctly that there will be an exception to MEN on the calendar? Oh, that would be most lovely.

I'm curious what you will pick for me? Well, maybe not just for me but do you know of any other lesbian/gay women commenters on your blog?


Well, you said I always leave funny comments when I drop by!

Hey MBA,
I must have missed this post last week. Congratulations on this award. Unfortunately you've been doing too much schmoozing at work and not enough here.
Never mind about the technical problems with the rockin'blogger award, just don't screw up the calendar doc photo, which you will have to hurry with, else it will be September doc.

Roger Owen Green said...

Yours is the 2nd strangest blog about medicine I've visited.

Medblog Addict said...

If you come back Mr. Green, please tell us whose blog is stranger than mine.

Girls: speaking of strange, I do have a post in mind that reminds me of a meme (but I don't actually know what a meme is); and Amanda will be required to participate. It's just a question that I want to see how people answer. (You know, so I won't have to think of anything original to write about.)

O.k., I'll bite. :)
