Blogging offers creative outlet for physicians

Physicians lead busy lives, and when not dedicating their time and energy to practicing medicine, they often rely on a hobby to unwind. For many physicians, this means something traditional (e.g., playing golf or a musical instrument), but a growing number of medical professionals are seeking a creative outlet as amateur publishers. How? They blog. Also known as Weblogs, blogs are online publications that allow anyone with Internet access to become an instant publisher. Content can range from personal thoughts-similar to a diary-to news and analysis or political rants.
