US bigger and better again!31st May 2006
I was delighted when Sarah Jackson Han agreed to join our blogging team. I have known Sarah for a long time and her passion coupled with writing skills are second to none when it comes to this sort of thing. What I didn't expect was that her first blog would generate such interest (which, in case anyone was wondering, is why we have kept it on for such a long time).
Since appearing on hc2d, Sarah has been invited to conferences and a major US broadcaster has expressed an interest in airing her article - in fact she's been stealing all the limelight!
Our response is that we are going to split the blog into two parts; the first half being the continuation of this stream of consciousness; short, sharp, snappy entries in typical diary style with updates on the progress of hc2d and insightful observations on the latest news stories.
The second "blog" - which we're going to call Viewpoint - will allow extended commentaries and essays to be posted which we will leave on-line for longer periods. Viewpoint postings will be more in the style of The Guardian's Comment is Free "blog" (which we think is great) and will be provided with more navigational tools to select entries by subject or author. Watch this space!
We also need to think how best to respond to our American audience which appears to be growing fast. Again, watch this space...
Since it's the end of the month, a few stats. Yesterday, we had the maximum number of visitors so far visiting the website and it was the first time we exceeded 2000 hits in 24 hours; (co)incidentally, 2000 was around the circulation of our first issue of Healthcare Today.
The second issue of our magazine is due out any day and will be available as a free download to registered users courtesy of IDIS Ltd, to whom we are very grateful. Of course, there's no substitute for a hard copy you can hold in your hand and carry around so you might want to consider a subscription instead?
Enough of me - now back to Sarah....
