2010 in review

Healthy blog!

Well, the numbers are in! WordPress Bloggers all over have reviewed our blogging success for 2010.

Thank-you everyone who visited and re-visited, and to each of you who provided insightful and interesting comments.

Without doubt, articles about breasts, chocolate, cancer and pain are popular here at Some Energy Thing.

The big story of 2009 – Medical Negligence and the Meaning of Life – continues to receive many visitors. Most readers come from medical  and emergency medicine blogs, and this is a good thing. This powerful, compelling account of my Mum’s near-death encounter with the health system drew the attention of medical and nursing staff at the hospitals involved, and Mum has subsequently been invited to speak at ER conferences and staff training sessions. From horror and despair, came hope and change.

I was surprised – and kind of relieved – to see that two stories about men’s health, one starring Billy Connolly and his prostate,  the other featuring crabs were quite popular. We health professionals love it when men and their generally neglected health needs get some exposure, so to speak!

Roses, asparagus, cauliflowers and images of modern feminine beauty also gathered readers and some insightful comments.

I enjoy creating this little blog, and love that you continue to visit. Without readers, a blog really is just a lot of hot air!

I keep it meaningful, varied, challenging and entertaining. Sign up to receive updates by email or by RSS feed, and you’ll be part of the creative energy here.

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
