Here’s a taste of a few blogs I drop in on from time to time, and I would encourage you to check out for yourself…
Steve Whitehead hosts The EMT Spot, and he has recently revamped his site. Not only is his site looking snazzy, he’s sporting a new logo too (courtesy of yours truly). I truly like his site because his articles appeal to all levels of certification, not just Paramedics.
Greg Friese runs a blog called Everyday EMS Tips. He writes about all topics EMS, from unconventional things to carry in your ditty bag to favorite apps, to hot topics in EMS, and continuing education. Greg also recaps his favorite posts from other authors to make sure you get a broad flavoring of posts you may not have otherwise found on your own. He’s also very good at social media and an education expert.
Rogue Medic has of late been tackling tough topics in EMS, and although I don’t agree with everything said on the blog, it makes me stop and think about why I believe what I believe. I remember a certain textbook author/physician challenging us to do the same thing with his EMS Myths a few years ago. Agree or disagree, but be honest with yourself enough to know WHY you feel the way you do.
Like it or not, social media is everywhere public safety is. Ignore it at your own peril, even if you are not an agency PIO. The Social Medic shows you how to make it work for you!
Feel good medicine… The Happy Medic has a little of everything too, including support of the Kilted To Kick Cancer movement, plus leadership tips too.
If you don’t mind a little cynicism, Too Old To Work, Too Young To Retire has a bit of that. As the tagline goes, “Paramedicine, politics, guns, a little Country Western”.
I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I do. This isn’t a complete list of what I like to read, but it is what came to mind just this moment. Find us all on Twitter, Google +, and a few other microblogging/social media places. Make sure you don’t miss out on any posts by subscribing to their (and my) RSS feeds. Thanks for reading!
