Here is my first post - mostly stolen from Kim.
The responses for my blog are as follows:
1. Who runs this site?
This site is run by Linda, a student nurse and epidemiologist. I have a master's degree in Epidemiology and a bachelor's in Microbiology. Before going back to nursing school, I worked in Emergency Preparedness planning.
2. Who pays for the site?
The site is provided for free by blogger.com. It costs me nothing to maintain.
3. What is the purpose of the site?
The purpose of this site is to give me a forum to discuss my experiences as a nursing student and mother and other topics related to nursing.
4. Where does the information come from?
It comes from my own experience, the majority of my posting is anecdotal. All patients, staff and hospitals are either composites or have identifying information concealed or altered to allow for patient confidentiality. When applicable, links to information sources are given.
5. What is the basis of the information?
Please refer to question number four.
6. How is the information selected?
The postings are based on what I want to write about and what I feel will be interesting to read.
7. How current is the information?
It could be as current as my last lecture and internet research allows.
8. How does the site choose links to other sites?
My links are based solely on sites I have read and found interesting.
9. What information about you does the site collect, and why?
The site collects no information about anyone other than what is recorded on the site meters.
That information is used just for my own personal interest in seeing where my readers come from .
10. How does the site manage interactions with visitors?
Hopefully they comment and I comment back! I use word verification to stop spammers. All opinions are welcome and only posts containing profanity would be removed.
