Recent Changes to Everyday EMS Tips

I had some downtime at Newark Airport a few weeks ago. And by downtime I mean 5 hours camped out on a chair near the terminal B baggage claim. I splurged on the Boingo wireless and used the time to make some site changes. A few of those changes:

1. Social share buttons moved to side bar. +1, Twitter, and Facebook like have been moved from the top of the post to the left side of the post. Your shares of Everyday EMS Tips posts are a leading source of site traffic. I really appreciate every share. Thanks.

2. Training Tab on Nav Bar. I added a three drop downs to the Training tab on the nav bar. These are resource pages. So far I have created resource pages which link to other posts for:
a. Hot Topics – 12 Lead ECG, Capnography, MCI and Bath Salts
b. Patient Assessment – patient assessment and vital sign measurement related posts
c. Race Reports – recaps of races I have run in 2011.

Do you have other suggestions for improvements to Everyday EMS Tips? Many of the changes I have made have come through user comments.

Thanks for your ongoing support. Your occasional clicks on ads and purchases through affiliate links help me cover the costs of hosting and sending the weekly email newsletter. Thanks!
