Updates on The Blog Rounds and Medical Blogging Summit

Boredom, is one thing I hate from being “incapacitated” by itises of some sort. During these times, watching reruns on DVD and teevee is hatefully irritating!

I am a person who can’t settle down longer than one minute without doing something. And if there is something that would kill me, it’s boredom rather than the disease!

But, enough for that whining and ranting. Lets get back to blogging.

First, I missed TBR. This twice monthly grand rounds in the medical blogosphere went into hibernation for two weeks. I lost track of assigning a host blogger.No host, ergo no rounds. My apologies to all TBR bloggers and readers.

Starting this week, TBR hosting will go on it’s second round, with Prudence MD volunteering to host the coming week’s TBR rounds. The succeeding hosting schedule will follow the cascading schedules as of before. I will post the schedule inTBR archives sections soon. Hopefully, this will all be a relaxed schedule since TBR is published online every two weeks now rather than weekly.

I’m still pushing through with the Medical Blogging Summit and the organizing committee that will brainstorm on it. I need volunteers for the org comm and I have approached some TBR bloggers actually via emails and comments. As Ive said before, we can have a mini i-ball in Manila this late August or early September (around WordCamp time) to lay the ground work for the medical blogging summit. For those who wanted to join the org comm please email me or leave comments on my post so I can get your details and phone number.

I think that’s all what my left hand can type for now!
