A letter to my loyal readers

Dear readers,

You may have noticed my blog posts have decreased in number over the last year or two. A couple of factors have brought about this change.

After blogging for more than eight years, I am running out of ideas. When I started, I had accumulated a number of things I wanted to say about medicine, surgery, medical education, research, and other topics.

The second issue is the Blogger platform I use is very clunky and slow. I’m sure it has discouraged people from commenting. It even runs slow for me. I just can’t face the hassle of migrating the blog to another site like WordPress.

I am going to try to blog exclusively for Physician’s Weekly, a website I have written for regularly over the last six or so years.

Yesterday, I posted “Odd medical stories. The third one is jaw-dropping” on the PW site. Here is the link.

Whenever the next post is ready, I will link to it from here so those of you who are on my email list will know a new piece is available. I hope the extra click is not too inconvenient for you.

Of course, I will continue to promote my blog on Twitter. If you have not followed me there, you can by finding my twitter handle, @SkepticScalpel.

I thank you for reading and hope you will continue to do so.

Sincerely yours,

Skeptical Scalpel

Ditto from me. I know it's hard to keep finding topics of interest. Gives us an appreciation for editorial writers. All the best.

Hi I'm thinking about going into medicine and I was wondering if there is a way I could contact you more privately. Life is about choices and I would like to hear your opinion on certain matters! Thank you in advance!
