What makes a good blog? Is number of followers or comments received a good indicator of how good a particular blog is? I have been looking back at my blogposts over the last nine months and wondering what is it all for? My posts seemed to be slightly longer back then, but I am unsure as to if the quality of posts has suffered as the blog ages. I started off with lots to say, but I get the feeling I ran out of things to say or ran out of steam. Although even now, I take some pride out of this blog.
I set up this blog just because I could. I enjoyed reading medical and non-medical blogs and decided to give it a go. Then people started to read it and hopefully like it. I hope you all got something out of it.
So what is the point of this blog now? Are people expecting a funny story everynow and again, is its just one more blog to check on the list? Perhaps I should start telling stories of heroism that I have performed, rescuing twenty patients from a burning hospital? And what is the point of the wider medical blogosphere? Is it to make people laugh or think? Or is it to preach to the converted about how shit governments are and illustrate the inepitudes of managers in the NHS?
Have we made a difference? Is it our job to try and change stuff? Or is it just another hobby?
