Dr. Ramona L. Bates at Suture For a Living showed her appreciation of my blog by giving me this award. This is what she said:
The Sterile Eye who is a Norwegian medical photographer. I love all the videos he shares with us. He is very good at his job and writes well too.
I am truly honoured!
And now it’s my turn to give this award to five other blogs. The rules are as follows:
1.You have to pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award in terms of creativity, design, interesting material, and general contributions to the blogger community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each winner has to show the award and give the name and link to the blog that has given him or her the award itself.
4. Each winner and each giver of the prize has to show the link of “Arte y pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5. To show these rules.
I would love to give a reward back to Suture For a Living, as it’s one of my favorite blogs, but that would surely make an endless loop of awards. So here are five other great blogs I read regularly:
1. Monash Medical Student. Dedication is the word for this blog of Singaporean medical student Jeffrey Leow, currently residing down under. We share the interest in surgery and running, both of which he writes brilliantly about. Jeffrey is also the creator of the only surgical blog carnival – SurgeXperiences.
2. Biomedicine on Display. The blog of the medical museum of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Packed with interesting information and thoughts on medical history, both ancient and contemporary, reading this blog is like watching a making-of-documentary where the museum is the feature film. Always interesting.
3. Øystein in Antarctica. This is not me on the South Pole, but the blog of a friend of mine who was the expedition doctor on the Antarctic research station Troll for the summer season 2007-2008. The blog is no longer active, as he has returned to civilization, but reading it gives a fascinating insight to what it’s like to live on the “ice planet”.
4. IntraopOrate. The blog of the Surgical First Assistant that calls herself makeminetrauma. To her “surgery junkie” is a compliment. Her love for anything surgical shines through in all of her posts. I envy her hands-on access to the human anatomy, and I love her blog.
5. Sushi Or Death. The last blog I want to mention is in no way connected to the medical blogosphere (unless you eat a badly prepared fugu, that is). A former colleague of mine writes on everything raw and fishy. Reading Kariknapp’s blog really makes you mouth water.
