Las Vegas Airport Parking Rates

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Las Vegas Airport parking rates are better than those at LAX. $8 is better than what I typically pay. I was in Las Vegas again this past weekend (I’ll be back the week of the chiropractic orthopedists conference) continuing the research I’ve been doing, for an ongoing series of local search presentations. The presentations are intended for chiropractors and other local based small-business owners. I took lots of photos during this past Las Vegas trip. The sign above says that parking for Terminal 2 in Las Vegas is only $8 per day. As part of my […]

Continuing Education and Running Reno

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Ask any chiropractor that’s sat for 12 hours or more doing continuing education and they’ll likely tell you they’d rather be doing something else, especially since most chiropractors tend to take continuing education courses on weekends. Earlier in June I was in Reno Nevada for the California Chiropractic Association annual convention and chiropractic relicensing seminars. It was a three day event which featured quite a few opportunities for relicensing hours which translates into sitting for long periods of time inside a hotel casino conference room. I get stir crazy when inside for long periods of time […]

7 Summertime Stories from Chiropractic Days Past

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Here’s a summary of seven summertime articles from the past, all posted during the summer, from as far back as year 2000. Summer time should be getting all of us outdoors for increased activity and enjoyment. You don’t want to spend your days sifting through 10 years of chiropractic news content when I can be pulling out juicy bits of information from years past, while you kick back and relax, basking in the glow of July’s rich sunshine. Of course you are welcome to browse through archives on your own,  but then what excuse would I […]

Changes Coming Summer 2009

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Change is good. Were facing another summer here at the headquarters for Planet Chiropractic and Chiropractic Blogs, and while there is plenty of activities scheduled, there’s going to be some summertime fun taking place as well. I like taking time off to rest, relax and recharge like anybody, and living at the beach, this is about the week prior before we begin to slow things down and enjoy the sunshine, versus spending time indoors. The photo is of a “sprite” and was taken at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. It is a peaceful image, […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. If you have been reading Planet Chiropractic news the past few months you may be wondering what’s been going on with all the marathon related content. Actually, we’ve had marathon related content for about four years now, but there’s really been plenty of marathons taking place in the past few months. I love to run. Most people who know me know that I like to get out on the beach and run as a way to keep physically fit and mentally fit. I had been reminding myself that I’ve got to summarize some of the marathon […]

Press and Media Releases

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I receive e-mails several times a week from businesses and individuals seeking to post press releases and media releases to Planet Chiropractic news. In the more than 10 years that people have been e-mailing stuff our way, I’m surprised how few have discovered the difference between the right way and the wrong way to submit information. Just because you’ve developed a new chiropractic adjusting device, or have just become an affiliate for some sort of nutritional multilevel marketing program, doesn’t mean you have news to share. It may be news to you, but it’s really not […]

26 Mile Plus Sunday Running Marathons

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. The 2009 Boston Marathon runs on Monday (420), April 20th, with some 25,000 plus people be taking to the streets, testing their will against Heartbreak Hill (mile 20ish), and racing to the finishline in historic Boston. It’s one of the few US marathons taking place on a Monday, instead of the traditional Sunday morning event. It’s not the only Marathon that runs on a Monday (in Boston the Marathon may as well be a holiday since schools and many places close for the day), the Los Angeles Marathon has decided to move their normal running date […]

Twitter Blog Mentions To Date

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Now that Oprah and Ashton Kutcher are talking about Twitter, I guess more people are going to be increasingly getting in on the conversation. I wasn’t sure when I first started mentioning the microblogging service on Chiropractic Blogs so I did some searching through the archives. Looks like I first made mention of the service on November 4th of 2007, in a post about the 1 Second Film Project. I’d been using Twitter for a few months before that time, but I wasn’t too active in posting tweets. It was the BarCamp 4 Los Angeles event […]

20 Crazy Word Combos

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Checking website stats is a funny thing. On a chiropractic blog you’d expect to see results for terms like chiropractic, chiropractor, and other things directly related to the field, but there’s so many seemilngly unrelated words that bring visitors… to all websites. I like the process of discovering what those words are. The photo to the left will start us off. It was taken as part of a functional leg length assessment but that’s not what people see. What many see is a pair of Black High Heeled Leather Stitched Pumps and that’s what they may […]

Constant Content Creation Drives Traffic

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. What’s a geek chiropractor to do on Friday night? Well, I came home from the office (a rocking week serving Los Angeles) and cleared an 8′ whiteboard in my home office, so I could set week ahead goals on it. I showered, weighed in (195), posted next 7 days of workouts, vitamin intake schedule, and plans for 9 blog/news posts to be completed. I love setting goals. More than that, I love checking those goals off the old school way (check marked and erased). I sat down to get started on the first post, paused to […]
