A year in the blogosphere
The hottest topics of the year were (in order, based on the number of postings):
1. H1N1 influenza
3. Active surveillance
4. Public reporting of healthcare associated infections
5. The role of white coats and clothing in infection prevention
Interestingly, the number one topic, H1N1, wasn't on our radar screen when the blog started a year ago, but it appeared suddenly and held our attention for most of the year.
According to Caslon Analytics, "the average blog has the lifespan of a fruit fly," with 60-80% of blogs not surviving past the first month. Of those blogs that survive past day 1, the average lifespan is 126 days. So, I guess we've beaten the awful odds of blog neonatal mortality.
As always, we invite you to post your comments.
