I find it gratifying that Being Cancer still get over a hundred visits a day even when I don’t write new posts for days at a time. Of course, the most popular feature of this site is the list of personal cancer blogs, my mega-cancer blogroll that has become a unique resource on the web. This feature takes a lot of time and energy to maintain and build.
So I would like to make a special appeal to blog visitors to help me to build and expand this list. Please refer me to blogs that are not yet on my list. The most convenient way might be to copy and paste the URL or web address. Or else you could just refer me to the blogroll on a particular website.
As the summer winds down, I plan to wind up my efforts to build the Cancer Blogs lists. My goal is to build past 1000 cancer blogs. I will probably break the feature down into three or four separate pages to make them easier to navigate, maybe even changing the tabs to reflect on which page a particular cancer can be found – i.e. Cancer Blogs A – D, E – K, L – O, P – U.
Halfway through the history of this blog, I changed my criteria to include cancer blogs which were no longer active but were still published and accessible. Blogs can cease to be active due to the death of the blogger, but also because the blogger is in remission and no longer feels the need to blog. These blogs are still valid and useful as legitimate, honest histories of persons who endured specific episodes of cancer. Nonetheless, I will strive to include the status of each blog, the date of diagnosis, and the specific sub-type of the cancer.
We are all in this together. Together we can do things that can’t be done individually. Take care, Dennis
