As some of you who read various EMS blogs in the EMS Blogs network know, the entire enterprise will be moving. Dave, our hardworking and very supportive blog master, has made arrangement with the First Arriving Emergency Services Network to take over administration and support of the blogs that comprise EMS Blogs. The story is here, for those interested.
In the short term this means that there might be some outages on the various blogs. For now we’ve been told that blogging will continue as it has. Which means I’ll be continuing to post as much as I can when what passes for work doesn’t get in the way.
I’ve been trying to strike a balance between EMS and my other interests with varying degrees of success. I’ll continue to work on that as well as post more frequently.
Over the slightly longer term, I hope that I’ll be able to update the look and feel of the blog. Many of the features available using Word Press are a bit beyond my ability, so hopefully having new back end support will allow for a more modern look. I’ve been blogging for seven years now, as amazing as that might seem. Most of that time has been with EMS Blogs and Dave have been very helpful and supportive over that time. Life has a way of interfering with what we want to do and life has taken Dave on a few twists of late. As he relates, he doesn’t have the time to do the technical stuff that even a simple blog like mine requires. Not to mention the outside attacks on the server that seem to be a fact of life on the Internet these days.
Thank you, Dave for doing everything that you did over the past years. Thank you also for taking steps to keep the network running, although I’m sure giving up actively running the network is not easy. It’s never easy to let a labor of love go to other hands, but sometimes it’s needed.
Stay tuned over the next few weeks, I’m not sure what will happen, but I’m sure it will be interesting.
