Are doctors good at anything else?

Naysayers you all.

Calling us blawgers…or worse.

Nothing productive will come of all that time you spend in grandiose self-promotion. Wait, isn’t all self-promotion inherently grandiose?

But now, after 622 posts, 2052 comments and 1818 tweets, I finally have something to show for it.

Did you know the press get free coffee and food? And it’s pretty good.

I just so love new adventures. The thing is, after I signed up and finished my first my bike race, I called myself a bike racer. That’s quite debatable.

Don’t worry, I promise not to call myself a journalist or writer. I’ll just stay a blawger.


P.S. This would be a great time to thank the many real writers and journalists that have helped (and help) me along the way. You know who you are. Thanks so much.



  1. Congrats on your first press pass! I felt the same (although merely a humble patient) when I covered the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress last fall for my blog readers. Wasn’t expecting that fantastic – free! heart-smart! – food in the media centre!!!

    Have fun…

  2. Jeez, you’ve joined the Fourth Estate! I don’t know if I can trust you anymore. Just kidding. I really appreciate the time you take to keep all of us afibbers informed. I love reading your posts and learn a lot every time. Fortunately for me, my ablation was a success, but I know it might not last forever so I enjoy keeping up with all the research you report on.
