It’s a labor of love but is it worthwhile? Time to stop and reflect.
For me there are several reasons.
It keeps me interested in continued learning about medicine and the science behind it and makes me more disciplined in the way I read.
It keeps me interested in the external issues that impact the practice of medicine. It forces me to think carefully and critically about them.
It provides me with an extensive on line filing system of articles of interest from the medical literature. If I am looking for this or that article I can go to the blog and find it fast.
It has introduced me to many wonderful cyber friends.
Besides, it’s fun.
