    Hi everyone,

    I'm in the process of preparing for Step 1. I'm documenting my progress from the very beginning (registration all the way to the exam date) on my blog found here.

    http://step1blog.blogspot.com/

    Hopefully, you'll find it both entertaining and informative.

    Good luck on the exam! :)

    Advertisement? That post wasn't an ad or a spam!

    For those who didn't read this first entry, it was from a guy inviting people to his Step 1 blog. I think its a great idea to start a thread listing active USMLE blogs. I was going to put mine up before I saw that the earlier post was deleted.

    I think we can benefit from having blogs of people studying for the Steps listed up here as a sticky or something. It's a good means of support. Who's with me for a blog sticky??

    BTW, I get about half a dozen referrals every week to my blog from blogsearch by people who are search for USMLE blogs. There's a definate interest in the blogosphere.

    People may not register on SDN in order to promote their own website. That is what the user was doing.

    Members are welcome to post a link in their sig, but not use posts to promote their sites.

    Yep, that's a great idea. Yahoo, MSN groups and mIRC channels should join the list. We can call the sticky "Community Groups and Blogs"
