Twenty seven blogs, 25 Filipino physician bloggers, 12 Rounds of blogging, 12 wonderfully hosted carnival of posts, and a hundred or more posts. One Blog Rounds, Proudly Pinoy

Come to think of it. What was once an idea came into the mainstream. What was pure “recreation” to some became an avenue for exchanging ideas with everyone. To top it all, the medical bloggers have their voice, on just about anything we can dabble into, medical or other wise.And for some reason, we feel good about it.

Is it the fun, the relaxation, the diversion? A coffee break to our tiring work? Was it to bring up front a certain ideology, belief or campaign? Or was it for the “heck of blogging!”

That heck of blogging it seems, has “some” diagnostic and therapeutic use. For one, we let out our thoughts on issues we choose, analyze and then find solutions to them. Perhaps our fanatic attachments to rigorous scientific investigations has made the relaxed and less stringent “looseness” of blogging invariably appealing.

Still not getting any point in this? Well, that is because for the 13th edition of The Blog Rounds, I will be asking you the same questions.

Why blog? What brought you to blogging? Was it the appeal? The diversion from intoxication? What would you want your blog to achieve? How would you like your blogs to be? The Blog Rounds? Do you think the rigorous scientific gobbledygook should be applied to what you blog? Like food stuff maybe? Do you have loftyaspirations for what you blog? Restrictions?

Long story short, I want your ideas about blogging and The Blog Rounds. Be creative yes, but be specific also. You can throw all kind of rants for and against it, no holds barred. You can also write about you blogging icons or your blogging influence. Just give me a hint why you blog

Hopefully, I get a draft of how, why, what and what’s next for physician bloggers, their blogs and The Blog Rounds.
