One of the more difficult posts to put together was my most recent on Nonclinicaljobs.com. The writer of such a topic can’t help but be placed under a microscope. I don’t claim to be a good writer, but in some technical way I am a medical writer simply by writing this post. So even though I can’t come close to turning a phrase like a master writer, I continue to write because I feel as though I have info to communicate. Most of my posts are just that, simple exposition of information with my personal experience and opinions thrown in. Having looked for high quality, high-yield information from those that have been successful in an endeavor is difficult to find, having looked for many years when I was looking for a career outside of medicine. With the advent and popularization of blogging information is plentiful. The difficulty now is to find useful information which is why I love blogging for Nonclincialjobs and FreelanceMD-both have information that is incredibly useful. In the case of Nonclincialjobs, I used what I read there to lead me to my current job. In the case of FreelanceMD, I weekly read an article that I wish I had written. The posts are information that I had gathered the hard way-by trial and error-and is presented in an easily digestible format.
