When I first started blogging about EMR, I use to mark every traffic milestone with a blog post. In many ways I miss those early days where it was exciting to think that anyone read my blog. It was amazing to think that my blog ticked over into digits when I hit 10,000 pageviews. Now we do close to 10,000 pageviews a day across Healthcare Scene.
One thing that hasn’t changed is that I’m still a stats addict. Although, I’m more refined on which stats I look at now. I’m more interested in trends and opportunities than I am in overall numbers. With that said, when I checked my stats for EMRandEHR.com today I paused for a moment when I saw that my stats program was reporting 2,002,454 views all-time.
What many don’t realize is that I only started this other blog because a Dr. Jeff asked me if I would create one. 21 posts into it Dr. Jeff got a job (at an insurance company I believe) and so he didn’t have time to blog any more. I hated the idea of the blog going to waste, so I would post to it occasionally. I also almost sold it about three years ago. Boy am I glad I didn’t. Little by little it continued to grow into a wonderful destination that I’m very proud of today.
One of the things I’m most proud of on EMR and EHR is all the great writers that participate on it. Over the years we’ve had Anne Zieger, Jennifer Dennard, Priya Ramachandran, Katie Clark, Katherine Rourke, David Lynn, Dr. West, and Dr. Jeff. Not to mention a whole series of guest posters. I’m lucky to associate with these great people. They’ve certainly become the voice of EMR and EHR in many ways. I just am along for the ride.
