Outside of posting how-to EMT and paramedic related articles that I feel will benefit greatly from reading, I actually enjoy reading other people’s blogs.
And when it comes to paramedic bloggers, there’s a lot to choose from. And like any good restaurant, the menu is quite varied—there’s truly something for everyone.
From those who choose to be anonymous, to those that use the Internet as an outlet to not only explain their day-to-day work on an ambulance, but also utilize their blog to showcase their personalities, paramedic blogging continues to be on the rise.
And it makes for some highly enjoyable reading.
For example, I enjoy Pink, Warm, and Dry because it’s so unique—how many mother’s of two are working tirelessly to take care of their children at home, save lives out in the field while on the job, and blogging about doing both?
Over at InsomniacMedic, you get to follow a blogger who openly declares that his insomnia is “my best friend, but I hate him.”
Too Old to Work, Too Young to Retire shoots from the hip, as does its title. A paramedic working in the Northeast of the United States, this blog is both opinionated and a must read.
Now yes, granted, not all of these amazing bloggers are still updating their blogs (they’re a little busy people, okay?), but that doesn’t mean that their remaining content isn’t still relevant, honest, and deeply intriguing. Regardless of the bloggers’ last post, whether it was in 2013 or 2010, I encourage you to dig a little and see what these paramedic writers had to say on any given date.
Why? Because some of it will make you laugh. Some of it might make you tear up. And some of it will downright inspire you.
So after some careful consideration, I give you my list of the top 51 paramedic bloggers that are working hard to bring you some great, valuable content related to the field of Emergency Medical Services.
And if you happen to venture over to one of their sites and enjoy their content as much as I do, please tell them I sent you!
