Grand Rounds, Vol. 8 No. 11: The Tumblr’d Edition
Hello and welcome to this collection of medical links from across the web, written by providers, patients and analysts that work on the frontlines of modern healthcare.
This is my sixth time hosting Grand Rounds (three prior times on blogborygmi’s blogspot site, twice on Medgadget.com), and my first time with Tumblr.
I’ve been hearing about Tumblr for years, and after finally making the leap a few weeks back, I figured it might be a good fit for Grand Rounds today, as well.
Grand Rounds has traditionally been motivated by traffic – hosts wanted their efforts rewarded with new visitors. Submitters wanted people to follow their links.
Now, however, I think the motivations are a little more muddled. Do people want followers? Likes? Retweets? Customers? Klout?
Well, what I want to do today is simply this: serve up some links to compelling healthcare writing from around the blogosphere.
There are no comments on this Tumblr. If you want to say something, you can offer your two cents via a link on Twitter, FB or G+. Or better yet, join the Tumblr community and give one of these links below a heart — or reblog it (with or without your commentary).
That’s my vision, for this week at least. Next week, the carnival moves on, and you can check out the next interpretation of Grand Rounds at GlassHospital.com.
