Okay, let's start again30th June 2006
As promised, the blog has now been divided into what had become its two distinct constituent parts. Our new section, Viewpoint, takes off from 1st July and will provide an opportunity for our growing team to exercise their powers of observation and incite on the healthcare events around them. It's also organised in a different way - around author and subject - making it easier to retrieve past entries in a way not always possible in a typical blog.
This blog will now continue as it began before it got hijacked by the newbies and will follow the much more familiar diary format.
So where are we as we enter July? Well, doing quite well, actually. hc2d is now ranked the 42,000th most popular website in the world which might not sound it but is actually quite high. There are millions of websites out there and Alexa (www.alexa.com) only take you seriously once you get into the top 100,000 - then you've arrived. What this equates to is around 2,500 visitors a day on average which isn't bad going only three months in. It means that we're up there with the BMJ, Department of Health and higher than most other healthcare news sites in the UK.
So what next? Well the first development is the launch of our new - and free - weekly news summary, delivered to your inbox every seven days. We've been debating whether a Friday or Monday would be better for transmission but actually - and quite soon - we might as well let our registered users decide for themselves. The new feature will be added to the personal preferences section in the near future.
Our home page has also changed in the last week, the most important feature of which is that it allows new users to register much more easily. And in case anyone hasn't a clue what this is all about, our new FAQ will hopefully have all the answers...
