What Medical Blogs are Read at the National Library of Medicine?

In this post, I discussed Citing Medicine: the second edition of the National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health's "Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers," which included a section on how to cite blogs (and other sources of information on the Internet).

To the amusement of a number of medical bloggers, the "examples of citations to blogs" includes many carefully constructed references to some prominent (and not so prominent) blogs. The list -- to the eye of someone who reads blogs -- was not created randomly, and several people have wondered whether it represents the reading list from someone at the National Library of Medicine.

In order of appearance, the following is a complete list of blogs that were cited. Some of these blogs I read regularly; some I haven't read in a long time; and some blogs I would have never discovered if not for this list.
