Improving the Medical Blogosphere
Newcomers to any group often bring fresh ideas and insights to that group which are worthy of consideration and may even generate change. Traveling Doc, the blogger of Borneo Breezes, is such a newcomer, and has a new post up on her blog which deserves thoughtful consideration by medical bloggers. I won't try to synopsize her post, as it needs to be read in its entirety; go over and read what she has to say. Read the comments too, as she further elucidates her ideas there.
Moof also blogged about the post on Borneo Breezes, and--as usual--has additional food for thought. Her comment section also contains some good feedback.
As Traveling Doc suggests, diversity of opinion--politely discussed--is an essential component of growth and change, and is to be encouraged. Blogs are an ideal format for such discussion. The medical blogosphere can only benefit from more such critical thinking as she is offering.
