It’s been asked of me why I blog. I am sure other bloggers, especially health care bloggers, are asked this at least once. I’ve said before that I think bloggers are egomaniacs with inferiority complexes (me included). We love what we have to say and want everyone else to love it, too. Putting our thoughts out there helps to soothe that inferiority some of us don’t like to be associated with.
But health care bloggers are a special group. I think on a whole we want to get our message out there. We want the public to know the inside workings of health care. We want people to understand where we are coming from, our experiences, our education, our opinions. I specifically started The Life and Times to help women think about and question their choices in maternity care while giving myself a platform to vent. Being a cog in the wheel of a system you disagree with in so many ways takes its toll.
Rebirth is no different. But why start it in a new blog? I felt it necessary to continue what I was doing with some new skin.
