Blogcation! See you at NACDS?

Well, it is that time of year again. I am taking my usual two-month break from blogging, a.k.a, a blogcation. Yes, I'm sorry to report that your subscription fees only covers 10 months of Drug Channels.

Drug Channels is now read by almost 5,000 people each month (and gets almost 12,000 unique visits monthly). Obviously, I only know only a small fraction of you. If you haven't done so, please send me a message if you'd like to chat on the phone or even meet in person at the NACDS meeting in August. (I'll be working during most of July and August despite the blog's summer hiatus.) I'd be pleased to discuss how I help people understand this evolving industry and develop strategies to deal with it. Plus, meeting me in person at NACDS may convince you that I am not just a computer generated avatar.

My summer reading list from 2008 is still worthwhile if you are looking for something wonky to bring to the beach. See Summer Reading. If those books are not enticing enough, you can always revisit some of the most popular and controversial Drug Channels posts from 2009 (in chronological order):

I'll be back to blogging after Labor Day. Have a great summer!

    the real question following today's blog (given the picture you posted) is do you surf?!

    Safe travels! Hope you and the family can sneak some fun in amidst all the work.

  3. Happy 4th of July, Adam. Enjoy reading your informative and entertaining articles!

    Great job this year. You have a distinct insight into this industry and a very simplified way of effectively communicating complex prinicples. Thank you for all your hard work and your willingness to share.

  5. Hope you are having a great work/vacation time. Did you change your blog format? Seems like you have more links.. Have you considered using twitter? What would you recommend as the best source of information for a small pharmaceutical manufacturer company?

  6. Hi Sonya,

    I'm still working, just not blogging.

    We are in the midst of a site redesign for the Drug Channels blog. It's not finished yet but should be done by early August.

    I am holding off on twittering b/c it is a too much of time commitment. I have an account (here) but have not advertised it widely yet.

    Please send me an email (links above) if you'd like to discuss your questions.
