I was the only physician in the venue being the only physician-member of CBSi and it occurred to me that in a way, I am privileged.
I am privileged because unlike other doctors, I have at my disposal another powerful tool to help other people. A tool that can reach out to a larger number of people and that tool is in the form of blogs.
Being a blogger gives me an opportunity to practice another aspect of the medical profession which is being an educator, a teacher. With blogs, I can share things I learned on public health, microbiology, health professions education as well as experiences. I can also share news or events.
At times, some doctors seem to be detached with what happens in the world outside the hospital or the medical field. Being a blogger keeps me aware of what's happening. It keeps me connected with society. It keeps me connected with both the youth and the "veterans" of this world.
Being a blogger opens my world to other opportunities outside medicine like contributing stories or articles to Yahoo Philippines (hopefully). I was very fortunate to attend some sort of orientation and training by Yahoo Philippines for prospective contributors this week together with other bloggers and I am looking forward to writing for them.

Being a blogger is really worth celebrating. It brought me more friends and more blessings.
I'm certainly glad to be a blogger. How about you? Are you glad to be a blogger? Feel free to express your thoughts on the comments section.
