February roundup of the EMS blogging world


The Social MedicFrom one guru of social media in EMS to another. The Social Medic, David Konig, has started a bit of a blogging masterclass on his own blog.First off is a post that walks those new to reading blogs through some of the common terminology that you may find when visiting the EMS blogosphere. If you have never heard of a ‘ping’ or a ‘permalink’, then this is the post for you. ‘Blogging terms to know’ is an essential first look for any reader who has decided to explore this alternative means of sharing information and best practice (The Social Medic, 2011a).He then follows up with ‘Choosing an identity’, that looks deeper into the decisions that need to be made if you are thinking of venturing into blogging yourself (The Social Medic, 2011b). Think you have a name in mind for your blog? Is it the right one? Go and have a read and think about the image that you want to portray to the internet and to represent your service and/or profession.
