I’m working hard to get ready for a beta or “soft” launch of a new web site we’re developing for patients. It’s a project we’ve been working with a great task force to get done. The tool and basic design are now in place, and we’re working at a furious pace to plug in content, fix stuff, and get ready to solicit more data about our care providers (info about our docs is currently the most heavily referenced part of our current clinical site). We’re shooting to “go live” by Thanksgiving. For being one of the three readers still with me, you get to take a very early & unofficial sneak peek. Let me know what you think.

I’m still here, watching the rain bouncing off my window early one evening, contemplating a dash to the car and a slow, wet drive home. The rain means there’s a cool front lingering just to the north, relief from the mosquitoes and a respite for my AC. All good things.
Last week a pep talk reader wrote me an email, wondering if she should remove the bookmark she had set to my site. The last time I updated it was at the start of the hurricane season, and here we are, almost at the end of it. She got me to thinking about whether anyone else was still out there, still checking in occasionally.
As many know, I’m in a new more web-focused role (one that keeps me really busy in a good way). I’m not “in the loop” in the way I was in my former communications role, hence more limited in the insights and information I have access to and am able to share. But I enjoyed doing this, and would like to continue doing so, even if the site and effort do take on a different shape and flavor.
My old customized template went as bad as month-old milk, so I had to retire it. I’ve switched to the WordPress default until I can recreate (or find) something I like more. I’ve also traded in my Blackberry for an iPhone (more on this later), and am running a new WordPress app on it that should make posting a lot easier (and hopefully timely).
So, if you are still out there (I can’t imagine many of you are), I hope you’ll find in time the wait’s been worth it.
