NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Don’t know who nominated this blog for a 2009 Medical Weblog Award – but thanks.

We’re kind of a fish out of water in this category, since all the other finalists appear to be doctors – and I’m just an old journalist.

But then again the other finalists write about llamas, cooking and eating (sometimes), and other far-ranging topics you can check out for yourself. And you should check them out – because you’ll undoubtedly encounter some new and intriguing blogs and bloggers.
