davidrothman.net in the “Healthcare 100” (and a reader poll)

Well, this can’t be right.

According to eDrugSearch.com’s algorithm, this blog isn’t just in the Top 100 Healthcare Blogs, it is in the Top 10.

Some of my favorites are also in the top 100:

Medgadget.com – #1
Kevin MD – #2
Over my med body! – #10
Polite Dissent – #12
Science Roll – #37
Women’s Health News – #97 (Hurray for MedLib Blogs!)

Funny, I never set out to write a “healthcare blog.” Go figure. I sometimes wonder how the approximately 900 subscribers to this blog’s feed break out by profession. I’m curious what portion work in medical libraries, what portion work in libraries of other sorts or are library students, and what portion are clinical professionals/students of one sort or another. I strongly suspect that more subscribers are libraryfolk than medicalfolk.

In an attempt to find out, I’ve created the quick poll below. If you have 20 seconds to spare, I’d be grateful if you were to select the radio button next to the option that best describes you and click “Submit Vote.”

  5. You’re great, that’s why you’re on the top of the list. And your number of feedreaders is just awesome!

    It seems that I’m the only medical student here regarding the survey so far. It’s weird…

  6. Congratulations, David! There are blogs which I ‘scan’, yours is one I really read from A to Z. πŸ™‚
