Nurses Need to Learn the Business of Blogging

I have helped many nurses discover blogging, learn more about blogging, and even encouraged some (like my friend Nurse Eye Roll) to come out of the anonymous blogging and social media closet. I’ve spent countless hours researching the skills, tools, and methods needed to be a successful blogger and have grown a site that attracts over 100,000 visitors every month.
