    Dear Dr. Shazam,

    I am an internist with a medical news site, Hot Medical News http://hotmedicalnews.com which I think your readers would find interesting. I have a couple of stories about conditions in the Canadian and UK health care systems which are off the beaten track, and you might find them interensting. If you agree, perhaps you could link to my site.

    Dear Doc. Shazam,

    My name is Barbara O’ Brien and my blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere on the progressive political and health blogophere has earned me the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.

    I’m contacting you because I found your site in a prominent health and medicine search and want to tell you about my newest blogging platform —the public concern of health care and its reform. Our shared concerns include health reform, public health, safe workplaces, and asbestos contamination.

    To increase awareness on these important issues, my goal is to get a resource link on your site or even allow me to provide a guest posting. Please contact me back, I hope to hear from you soon. Drop by our site in the meantime—www.maacenter.org/blog.

    Happy Holidays,

    Barbara O’ Brien

    HI Barbara, I have a few small ads on the site, which I moderate, just to help it pay for itself. Aside from that Mr. Hassle’s Long Underpants doesn’t trade links, unless it’s a resource that I personally enjoy reading (as in my entire blogroll). My interests and the regularity of other bloggers change over time as do my links. Thank you for being a reader.
