From 0 to 100

Today I was looking at my list of posts on EMR Thoughts and saw that this post will make the 100th post to EMR Thoughts!! So, I decided it’s time to celebrate that milestone.

The funny thing about celebrating milestones like this is that I use to do it all the time when I started EMR and HIPAA about 6 years ago. Now that I have so many site, I don’t remember to look back at the newer sites and realize how far they’ve come nearly as much.

The first post to EMR Thoughts was done on April 14 of this year. So, that’s 100 posts in 8 months. Not too shabby. I also love that EMR Thoughts has gotten 128 comments on the site in that time as well. That’s pretty amazing interaction with readers for a new blog. Considering how few people comment compared to just reading and leaving, I’m grateful for all of you that took the time to join in on the conversation.

I also just checked the pageview stats for the site and it looks like in the next day will top the 20,000 page views mark for this site as well. It will be fun to look back on that number a couple years from now. I have a feeling we’ll blow it out of the water over the next year.

I must admit that I really wasn’t sure the type of content that I’d post on EMR Thoughts. I just knew that I had way too much content and not enough places to post it, so I started the site. 100 posts in, EMR Thoughts has turned into my place to discuss the EMR and Healthcare IT market. Any post that has to do with the size of the market, changes in the market, investments in EMR or healthcare IT will likely end up on EMR Thoughts. A quick look at the list of posts on the EMR Thoughts archives page tells an interesting story about the EMR, EHR and Healthcare IT market.

Well, 100 posts down. Now on to the next 100. Although, I bet I’ll probably lose track and not celebrate until EMR Thoughts reaches 500 posts.

Thanks everyone for reading and a Big Thanks to the advertisers on the site.
