I first met John Lynn about 3 years ago when we were both attending the first Practice Fusion user conference. We were chitchatting in the lunch line and discovered we were both bloggers. John then astonished me by saying that he was making a living blogging! At that point, TheDoctorWeighsIn was about 6 years old and I had never made a penny off of it–in part because the companies that wanted to advertise on my site had products that I didn’t want to support and in part because I didn’t want to/didn’t know how to/didn’t have the ability to MARKET my blog.
Watch this really fun conversation with John as he describes his blogging empire (now called HealthcareScene.com) and his upcoming Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference on April 7-8, 2014 in Las Vegas. I will be attending not only as a speaker but as someone who wants to learn how to do exactly what John does!
Enjoy the video!
