At the beginning of this year I had this idea to read as many medical student blogs as I can. So the first thing I did was to search for those medical student bloggers. As I said in an earlier post, I found more than a hundred blogs. To keep track of them I subscribed to all of them. I used to read some blogs more than others. There was a huge difference in quality and writing talent among bloggers. Some with no doubt could write for magazines. Some are just having fun. And some blogs were no more than an electronic public diary.
Yesterday I made up my mind and decided to let go and un-subscribe to the blogs that there was no more use for me to follow.
From about 150 feeds in my reader, now I only have 60.
I will not list the ones I read or the ones that I wont be reading regularly anymore but I do want to point to some outstanding blogs that I think medical students can benefit a lot from.
So, here are some feeds that I recommend for medical students(in no particular order):
Too bad Lonely Coyote from Medical Student Musings and Graham from Over My Med Body both stopped blogging once they became residents. Their blog's were really interesting and helpful.
Please do not get me wrong. Most of the blogs were great. But some were too advanced for me and some were just ... lets say not my style.
My blog still didn't reach its first birthday. I still did not find a certain niche for it. If you have any advice or suggestions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
