Each piece of media has its lifespan, and the ASDA Weblog isn’t any exception. This entry is the ultimate ASDA Weblog submit. The ASDA Editorial Board will now solely deal with Contour journal.
Once I was in highschool, I used to take heed to The Bugle podcast hosted by Andy Zalzman and John Oliver. When Oliver’s HBO present Final Week Tonight blew up, episodes of The Bugle grew more and more scarce, till in the future they introduced they might discontinue the present. I felt devastated.
However the present survived in actuality and in spirit. Years later, Zaltzman revived The Bugle, which he and rotating friends host. The Bugle additionally exists in spirit on Oliver’s present. The biting satire that made The Bugle so outrageous now permeates all through the lengthy rants on Final Week Tonight. The reveals could have modified, however the individuals who made them haven’t.
Which brings me again to ASDA Weblog. I’ve been a part of the ASDA Editorial Board for 3 years, beginning in 2020. I witnessed transitions ASDA made when the pandemic hit together with Contour shifting from print and digital supply to a digital-only publication. Regardless of this alteration, our writers embraced the brand new Contour and continued to inform the profound tales of dental college students. The identical will occur with the ASDA Weblog transition. Whereas we’ll not replace the weblog, we’ll discover a house in Contour for all our weblog writers. The spirit of the weblog will proceed to thrive there.
Let’s take this second to have fun the tales we’ve lined within the weblog in recent times. Listed here are a few of my favorites:
As my time period on the Editorial Board approaches its personal conclusion, I look again at my time with unbelievable fondness. Serving the Editorial Board has been a chance of a lifetime. It opened the door in my dental faculty training to locations exterior the clinic and classroom that I by no means would have imagined. Now we have an important crew. I can’t wait to see what the subsequent Editorial Board will deliver and what the way forward for ASDA publications will seem like.
