Writing a blog can be a fulfilling experience, but it can also be a demanding one. Mostly, that’s because it takes a lot longer to write than to read, and the readers always want new material. A blog updated once a month will soon cease to be a blog at all. The thing is, I feel like I’m starting to regurgitate some of the same material. It’s not my intention to beat a dead horse, but it seems to happen anyway. I think that this space could be improved by the addition of a few extra bloggers.
In the past, I’ve issued a call for guest authors, with varied success. This time, I’m looking for people who would like to blog on a more regular basis. Maybe you want to write a blog, but can’t seem to write more than once a week. Maybe you had a blog and had trouble maintaining it. Whatever the case may be, if you have a passion for health care, politics, policy and the like, and a desire to communicate your ideas to a diverse audience, I’d love to hear from you.
I’m seeking 2 or 3 individuals to join me not as guest authors, but as blogging partners. This may even lead to a change in the name of the blog to signify the expansion. There are lots of possibilities, but it depends on you. If you’re interested, send me a note. It would also be helpful if you included a resume and/or a writing sample. The deadline for consideration is October 31, 2011. Please forward this call on to those you know who might be interested, applicable listservs, etc.
