Medlogs: anyone else not getting feeds in?

Medlogs, also known as Medical News Feeds used to be one of my biggest referrers, and has the potential to be one-stop medblog shopping.


I’ll give it’s not easy to follow my (several) blog-software changes over the years, and that does change my RSS feed address (because I’m not too smart, that’s why). I’ve emailed Dr. Reider (who runs Medlogs) several times, and so far there’s no inclusion of my feeds. (I’m linked in the sidebar, twice, which is nice but not getting the feeds in).

Is anyone else having problems getting their feeds included, and does anyone have a better / more effective way of contacting them?

Update: from the first comments, I’m not alone.

B-52 Model Airplane

Completely non-medical.

Another of those email-forwards, here’s a (really huge) video of an RC model B-52 (which is really, really huge for a scale model).

How huge? A picture, 1K words, etc:

Here’s the link, just be aware it’s as big a file as the model.

New MedBlog alert: Tundra Medicine Dreams

Tundra Medicine Dreams

Call me The Tundra PA. I have been a family practice physician assistant for 14 years. After seven years practicing rural and suburban medicine in the Pacific Northwest, I came to southwest Alaska and immediately fell in love with the place and the people. This is the southwestern Alaskan bush, land of Eskimos, caribou, salmon, and wide-open tundra. Medicine—and just about everything else—is different here. It is The Last Frontier.

For most of my life, I have also been a writer; but I never managed to “realize my potential” in that direction. I suspect a serious lack of “bum glue” as the root cause, but closely connected is the sense that I’ve never found the story I wanted to tell. Until now. This place, these people, and my life among them is the story I will tell in this blog.

I got that out of one of his earlier posts, and there’s another true writer in the medblogosphere! Have a look when you have time.
