I’ve been writing health stories even before I was absorbed by PT in 2000. Health beat was one of the assignments given to me by PJ when I was starting with them. PT and PJ, by the way are sister companies. When I started my first blog, Mom Writes for a Cause, the intention was to share some of my exclusive stories published by PJ and PT back then. The stories I wrote are not really earth-shaking stuff. I remember I wrote something about the importance of securing health insurance or health card by indigent patients. This may sound trivial to others, but there are certain groups that may find the information useful. How I wish I could also write about cheap car insurance quotes, but that would fall under the business beat which is not my turf.
I was able to published some exclusive stories at Mom Writes for a Cause and then in my other blogs Sketches (used to be Yam’s Files), and then Yam’s Files. I’m not sure if I can still publish the other stories in toto maybe I can rewrite and update some information if needed. For now, I want to try to make Mum Writes Health Stuff a niche blog or a health blog, whatever you may call it. One health information (mostly health issues that I can or my family relate to) at a time.
