I had the honor of presenting at the Association of Health Care Journalists 2010 conference here in Chicago today and was delighted to speak to a packed room (on Sunday morning!  at 9 a.m.!) about how freelance writers (and everyone else) can build their own websites to publish and promote their work online.
