A beautiful Thanksgiving is nearly over, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t at least drop a few sentences of gratitude for readers of EMR and HIPAA on Thanksgiving. I live a wonderful life. I have a fantastic wife that is a wonderful compliment to me. She’s had a lot more to put up with me traveling so much lately for HealthcareScene.com and she’s been a wonderful supporter of me. I have 3 wonderful kids that are incredibly fun and bring so much joy into my life.

Lately I’ve been talking with a lot of people and they invariably ask me what I do. My simple answer is: I’m a blogger. Many times I comment how I never thought I’d be a blogger when I grew up. In fact, if you’d asked me a year and a half ago when I quit my day job if I’d be a full time blogger I probably would have laughed. I’m certainly the beneficiary of a little bit of luck, some great timing, and a decent amount of hard work. Although, I’ve had so much fun doing most of it that it’s often hard for me to call it work.

All in all, I have so much to be grateful for. I’m particularly grateful for all those who read EMR and HIPAA and my other sites and the advertisers who support my site as well. No doubt, none of this would be possible with out great readers. Thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting. Thanks for participating. Thanks to all the advertisers that have supported this site. As I’ve discussed recently with a number of advertisers, my goal is to provide really great value so we have long term relationships with our advertisers. For the most part, we’ve been able to do just that. So, Thank You!
