7 Post Challenge

If I have a blogger hero it has to be Suture for a Living-she single handedly inspired me to pursue my own blog, to understand how to make it work for me, and her blogs are always interesting, informative, well written and linked to others who help make the medial blogosphere worth being a part of.  As usual, she led me to the 7 Post Challenge which I just couldn't resist.
Polish Kebab Anyone???

  1. My first post now seems like such a novice effort.
  2. The post I enjoyed writing the most allowed me to combine man aspects of storytelling that I most like and tries to demonstrate how I as a woman/person/mother/neurosurgeon deals with the variety of patients I encounter every day.
  3. A post which had great discussion...well I have to say I haven't been the most popular but writing about medical malpractice seems to generate the most notice.
  4. You can always visit TBTAM for a wonderful mix of food, travel, musings or Toni Brayer, MD for insightful medical thinking.
  5. Obviously none of my blogs have been life-changing-but that isn't why I am blogging so I would offer up Exercising Your Brain and Rage Against Golf as ones I think would be helpful if more people read them.
  6. Titles? Perhaps I should spend more time thinking about them, I am usually most concerned with getting my thoughts down but I did have fun writing Pop, pop, fizz, fizz when Congress was failing miserably in addressing the Medicare cuts.
  7. I wish more had read my blog about JAMA review of Heart of a Lion, Hands of a Woman: What Women Neurosurgeons Do because I am so proud of this book and wish the blog would encourage more people to buy it and discover the amazing talent of this group of women neurosurgeons.


  1. Would love to read Heart of a Lion, Hands of a Woman but it seems to be out of print. Any ideas on where to get it?

  2. Easy! You can click on the banner of this blog where it says AANS Marketplace and it will take you right to the page where you can purchase through the AANS. If you have any problems, let me know and I will give you direct website! Hope you enjoy.

  3. Thanks for the mention. I'm going to tweet this. :)

  4. I'm embarrassed. I read this on Google Reader and never see the site content. Thanks.
