Resurrecting an old blog topic and other random stuff.

When I started the blog I had several “You’ve got questions, I’ve got answers” blogs in which I’d provide you the opportunity to use the “Leave a Comment or Comments” tab at the end of the blog to leave a question for me to answer in a subsequent blog. 

The questions were hit and miss so I’ve not had a “You’ve got questions, I’ve got answers” blog for several weeks.  It’s time to resurrect the questions blog.  Please take a moment to pose a question – anything (within reason) is fair game. 

In November this blog had 3,562 views and for the four months the blog has been in existence it has had 14,367 views.  I know you’re reading the blog – so take a minute to leave a question! 

The blog has been all over the place in terms of topics but if you’re a regular reader you’ve noticed a pattern.  I try to do at least one blog post each week related to my professional life, my opinion of the state of health care or on a current topic in health care. 

I try to do one personal story which usually involves a story about my now 22 month old son.

I also try to have one guest blogger each week.  The guest bloggers have all done a great job and the stories have been informative and moving.  The guest bloggers, like all of us, have a story to share and they’ve done so in a manner that I couldn’t do justice to if I were to tell their story.

I would like your help identifying future guest bloggers.  Is there a story you want to hear first hand, do you know someone who has a great story to tell, is there something or someone you’ve always wanted to hear about – let me know.  I will be happy to do the leg work to contact the potential guest blogger and ask that they consider doing a blog.  Feel free to use the comments tab at the end of the blog to make a suggestion or email me personally cthompson@gvmh.org if you do not want your suggestion to be public.  Anyone is fair game, I have no problem contacting the Whitehouse and asking the President to take a few minutes of his busy day to do a guest blog for me – I won’t guarantee results from any of the suggestions but I promise I’ll ask.  Let me know who you want to hear from.

In the end the blog has been a lot like the Seinfeld Sit-Com –  a story about nothing.

The blog I posted on Tuesday was picked up and featured on The Missouri Health Careers site http://missourihealthcareers.com/ by MHA.  I had no idea the blog was being monitored outside of our local community so you can imagine my surprise when I received word that a link to the blog was posted on the website.  It’s pretty cool and you can use the link above to check it out.  It’s a very informative website and I’d recommend taking a few minutes to check it out. 

Bring on the questions.
