I was at a conference a few years back and was incredibly excited about the level of interest I was seeing online in the educational blog posts I was sharing. I remember telling a group of pharmacy people that I was sharing case scenarios and pharmacy education online. I won’t ever get that image of the response out of my head. A very respected member of the education community gave one of the biggest eye rolls I’ve ever seen. They obviously thought it was a stupid idea. I knew from what you all were telling me, and the positive responses I was getting, that it wasn’t a stupid idea.
Looking back, that was exactly what I needed to keep going and fueled my passion to continue to educate in this non-traditional manner. We hit a milestone this week, and I honestly have a hard time believing it. Thanks to all of you liking and sharing the blog posts and pages of the website as well as those who’ve purchased study material or books, we’ve past the 1 million page views mark, which is just incredible to me.
For those of you that may not have been here when I started this blog, I wanted to find a way to share some of the lessons I learn everyday when helping patients and other healthcare professionals. I’ve been doing that since 2013. My goal was a simple 10,000 page views. I think we’ve overachieved 🙂
A huge thanks to my wife who puts up with my need to blog and the time involved in doing it. She’s also helped me so much with some of the books and study materials we’ve created.
Another big thanks goes out to all the guest contributors. I’ve had numerous pharmacists step up and share a story from their personal experience. I feel like I’ve learned more from them than I’ve shared myself.
I’ve had a few brilliant pharmacists who’ve also helped me with the book writing/study guide process. They’ve done a wonderful job and a big thanks goes to them.
