Even though there is plenty of important health news to write about today, I would be remiss if I didn’t set aside this final post to thank Michelle Rafter and more than 180 bloggers who pitched in to share in Word Count’s Blogathon 2011. People have egged each other on throughout the month and we have picked up new social media skills, made new friends, and exchanged posts.

I launched my blog, Patient POV, at the end of March 2011. At the time, I was posting maybe twice a week. Stepping up posting for 31 days straight definitely enhanced the visibility of my blog.

I have been passionate about my blog and love the camaraderie that came with this challenge. The structure has been a godsend. I learned to be a bit more self-reliant on WordPress, yet know when consulting an expert makes sense.

Tomorrow, we are having a blog wrap-up party. I hope to participate in more writing challenges, such as #madwriting and shorter blogathons ahead.

Tomorrow, I will be pushing for a new habit: getting my posts up first thing in the morning, instead of late each day EST –perhaps the worst time to secure visibility. I also hope to strive for more variation and breaking up posts into more manageable sizes.

Back to health and medicine first thing in the morning.

I wouldn’t mind setting up a collaborative medicine and health blog challenge. Let me know if you are interested in trying something like that on twitter at lauranewmanny or in the comments below.
