I have been blogging for 4 years, and it hasn’t gotten really serious until the last 2, I’d say. I have amazing readers who inspire me and who I hope are inspired when they come here. Or at least entertained for a moment. As ironic as it is (because of the name), my blog really has become more of a nursing blog than anything. And I’m okay with that.
It’s not the sort of nursing blog where you’ll find articles with the newest evidence-based practices. It’s not a blog about technology in nursing, wellness tips, or about the humorous parts of the job. If I had to define it, I’d say it’s a nurses’s personal blog about life inside and outside the hospital.
So. For 2014 you can expect more stuff for nurses. More nursing product reviews. More linkups with Paige and you nurse-bloggers. Another awesome week of blogging in May for Nurses Week (here’s 2012 and 2013 if you want a look). As I write, the part I look forward to the most is hearing what my readers have to say. I love the sense of community having a blog gives you!
And so, as my blog is settling into it’s own little niche, I hope you’ll stick around. Please let me know if there is something more you’d like to see here! And follow on instagram (@anna_the_nurse) where I post more non-nursing stuff than anything.
A little bit about the nurse link-ups if you’re new:
Each month Paige and I pick a theme for nurse-bloggers to write about. We post on the last Wednesday of every month. Linkups are open to nurses, student nurses, aspiring nurses, retired nurses…we’re flexible. We follow HIPAA guidelines and do not post any identifying information about patients in our posts. We LOVE when people link up with us!
Our January linkup is all about the essentials. What does a new nurse need when they’re first starting out? What do you wish you’d had in the beginning? What did you get and realize you never used?
