Five Years of Women’s Health News
Well, I missed it myself, but this blog turned five years old on 5/19/10. Things have been kind of busy around here recently, hence the lack of material or real commentary – I missed my own wedding anniversary this year because I was in Washington, DC at a medical libraries conference* for work.
This would be a perfect opportunity to reflect on this site’s purpose, and how I haven’t been giving it enough attention, and the state of blogging in general, and what-does-it-all-mean-and-where-is-it-going?, and how have Twitter and Facebook affected the landscape of content, and…and… Instead, I just read Say Everything: How Blogging Began, What it’s Becoming, and Why it Matters, which I would highly recommend to my friends who have been thinking about amateur blogosphere contraction lately. Tracing the history of blogs, their popular reception, and some of their major characters, it’s a nice reminder to stop worrying about change and stats and influence and post frequency, and to just put things of interest out there as long as one finds it enjoyable.
*I actually kind of really love medical library conferences, but will not be marrying them any time soon.
