If you’ve visited before you’ll notice a change in look and name of this site. What was Parenting Solved has become 33 Charts. I began writing on children’s health issues through Parenting Solved in 2006. While I wrote consistently through much of that time I have found myself over the past few months working to maintain my focus on honest, innovative material. I feel that I need a change.
Through 33 Charts I’m transitioning to a medical blog with some emphasis on social media. While much of my content will appeal to health care professionals, there will hopefully be an audience with e-patients, media professionals, social media types and anyone else curious about the intersection of medicine and web 2.0. I hope to maintain a pattern of clean, focused posts that create thought and dialogue.
If you’re a parent reader I hope you’ve enjoyed the content that I have delivered over the past three years. I’ve enjoyed your feedback. I’ll continue to cover the most compelling children’s health issues but not necessarily from the perspective of a pediatrician writing to a parent. I will keep all of my Parenting Solved content in place for this next generation of parents but it will live happily under 33 Charts.
And why the name 33 Charts? This was the number of charts remaining on my EMR the night I decided to make this transition. I wish the story was more dramatic.
I look forward to your thoughts and insight.
