The name of this blog is A Cartoon Guide to Becoming a Doctor. Back when I first started this blog about three years ago, my idea was to post cartoons I drew about medicine. I thought it would be a really fun blog. And for a while, I only posted cartoons.
Then I started running out of ideas for cartoons. So I started posting my stories about residency and sometimes my opinions. And those posts often got more comments and hits than the cartoons, and sometimes sparked interesting discussions.
Subsequently, I had another baby, and I just didn't have the time to draw lots of cartoons anymore. And I was sort of running out of fresh ideas.
These days, I try to post at least two cartoons every month, just to stay true to the name of the blog. But I still get complaints along the lines of:
"Hey, where are the cartoons?"
"The name of your blog is a lie."
"You should change the name of your blog."
"Yo, where's the cartoons?"
Yes, I get it. It's called A Cartoon Guide to Becoming a Doctor, and there aren't that many cartoons anymore. It's not like this was some kind of well thought out plan.
I don't want to change the name of my blog. I think there are enough cartoons in the archive that it's still a fair name. The only thing I'd consider changing it to would be The Blog Formerly Known as a Cartoon Guide to Becoming a Doctor. (And then it would eventually just become known as The Blog.)
