As we move Managed Care into the blogosphere, my curiosity was arosed about the number of active English language blogs. As with many internet related statistics, I found a wide range of estimates from 152 million (BlogPulse, February 2011) to 450 million — Hat Trick Associates. I unsuccessfully spent a bit of time searching for the number of healthcare specific blogs.
Suffice to say, a surfeit of blogs. Since we seek value in managed care, I pose the question, "What is the relative value of blogs?" — reading blog posts, contributing to blogs, operating blogs.
