So today is D-day for me. LOL I have to work another frackin midnight. So I’m oh-so excited about that. I swear my whole week is ruined knowing I have to find the sleep and strength to survive the 30hr adventure. (for anyone who has visited here before, you know how much I love midnights)
I guess it’s par for the course as a nurse. I really should suck it up and shut up, but my body just doesn’t handle the flip-flop all too well. And to add salt to my wounds, my 70mile drive, one-way, does not make it any easier.
I was super-excited yesterday when I got a ton of twitter follower alerts. I got a slew of emails notifying me of other tweets wanting to follow me. I thought at first it was more of the fraggin’ spammers, but to my pleasant surprise it was a TON of nurses and fellow medical professionals that were on twitter. The found me by way of Beth, on her blogsite PixelRN . She put up a grand ole’ blog post about all the nurses and medical professionals on twitter. And she started a master list! So like all the rest I too clicked the list to add everyone. It was way-cool to see all the nurse chatter late last night on twitter.
The medi-tweet experience (or tweeturses) got me thinkin’. I remember years ago when I first got interested in blogging. I thought it would be cool to do some nurse-themed blogging. There are of course tons of nurse blogs out there, but I thought I could join the fun? That of course didn’t happen. It took me until this past May to create To Be A Strong One, and it’s been a very bumpy road… I am my own worst enemy when it comes to blogging.
So after much thought, I’m gonna create a separate nurse blog for myself. (yeah… I’m stupid and crazy) My goal is to mesh my current blog with my new blog eventually. I have met so many wonderful people so far in my blogging adventure. I’d hate to lose my readers. Since they are so few and far between. I truly think I can have the best of both worlds, it’s just gonna take some time and transition.
Most of my readers are from the fitness and weight loss world. Even though they seem like worlds apart, I think it will mesh well. I mean medicine is medicine, no matter how you slice it or dice it.
I’ll be probing some of my repeat offenders here to give me their input.
I guess I just can’t let the nurse blogger in me die.
Lately I’ve been noticing some new ‘faces’ on twitter and the Blogosphere. Not so much as in new users.. but literally new faces. So I finally caught on to what the heck everyone was doing, and I too have been Manga-fied. I visited FaceYourManga.
I even created one for my wife.. and sent her the pic. LOL.
