#7Links – Contribution to the 7 Link Challenge from @ProBlogger

Seven. Such a wonderful number for a list of posts. Darren Rouse, the ProBlogger, suggested a blog post that links to seven other blog posts. This is my contribution to the 7 Link Challenge.

1. The First Post. Tips for watching an online education lesson to get the most out of the training content.

2. A post I enjoyed writing the most. Training for K9 Search and Rescue is a post about my dog Sousa and our training in SAR. I have been reminiscing a lot about my own SAR experience while reading the book¬†[amazon-product text=”Scent of the Missing” type=”text”]0547152442[/amazon-product] recently.

3. A post with great discussion. Do you ever go through the motions? had a great discussion that was made even better because several other EMS bloggers joined me to write on the theme of going through the motions. After reading (or re-reading) click on the links to posts from Steve Whitehead, Chris Kaiser, Tim Noonan, and David Konig.

4. A post on someone else’s blog that I wish I had written. Another list of seven admonishes against envy. I can’t think of a specific post I wish I had written, but I find great value in the blog posts from Seth Godin, Chris Brogan, Steve Whitehead, and Buck Feris.

5. My most helpful post – the Ins and Outs of becoming a conference presenter. This post is from episode 3 of the EMS Office Hours podcast.

6. A post title that you are proud of. One of the most difficult tasks of blogging is titling posts. I strive to write something descriptive, social media friendly, and search engine optimal. These are a few of my most clever blog post titles: Awake, Oriented, and Still Blogging.

7. A post you wish more people had read. Don’t Read this While Driving is about the dangers of driving while distracted. A topic of critical importance for EMS professionals.

Other EMS Bloggers, I would gladly link to your list for the 7 Link Challenge. Readers, thanks for looking back at some of these and other Everyday EMS Tips Posts in the archives.
