Thanks to a tip from Diabetes Notes I've discovered the Healthcare 100, a new global ranking of top English-language healthcare blogs from eDrugSearch.com -- and also discovered that little 'ol me here at DiabetesMine.com is currently rated No. 8. Cool!Heathcare_100_logo_2

The rankings are based on stats from Google, Bloglines, and Technorati, and a proprietary scoring system from eDrugSearch.com itself. And okay, the placements do seem to be moving targets to some degree, as new blogs are continually submitted and bump others around. Still, it's nice to make the Top 10 cut!

Congrats also to my friends at MedGadget, Kevin MD, Matthew at The Health Care Blog and Dr. Charles for taking top spots.

Stay tuned here for more news you can use, and feel free to tell a friend, of course :)
