This Google video shows that it takes about 2 minutes to start a blog on Blogger.com. Creating a web site has never been easier.
The video length is 1:58 minutes from start to finish and this includes writing your first post illustrated with a photo.
There are many medical blogs out there but we can always use a few new good ones. I do not have a blogroll in the sidebar but I subscribe to at least 40 medical blogs in Google Reader.
ScienceRoll points to an integrated feed of several genetics blogs. This is an interesting idea. I tested something similar with our hospitalist group and members generally liked it. We used the "RSS-to-web page" feature of iGoogle and the approval rate was nearly 90%.
It would be nice to have feed "pipes" (similar to Yahoo Pipes) of blogs in different specialties:
- A feed pipe with general medicine blogs
- A feed pipe with hospitalist blogs
- A feed pipe with cardiology blogs
- A feed pipe with nephrology blogs, etc.
It would be interesting to see if students, residents, fellows and specialists find these feed pipes useful.
