*Updated* List of Hospice & Palliative Medicine Blogs (Current & Inactive)

Lego Blogger Picture
**Updated 09/23/2014**
There has been a lot of new blogs since I last posted a list of hospice and palliative medicine blogs back in January 2009. So here is the updated list with a few more categories to help you better see the big picture. I have separated the main list into active and inactive to better help you know where the current info is. But don't skip the inactive blogs, because you will find some good writing there too. Leave a comment at the inactive blogs and maybe they will start writing again.

I also made a wish list of blogs I would like to see someday to maybe spur some action.

So when are you starting your blog?
