My vote for Blog of the Year

There be another contest on the interwebs where my site has the honor (Sorry Mark, honour) of being included with some of my favorite sites.  So I clicked on a link to vote and was unsure who I should vote for.  I could vote for myself (and there is still time) but for today I wanted to share with you my decision process in voting for Fire Critic’s 20009 Fire/EMS Blog of the Year.

In the voice of Jon Lovitz from SNL.

Fire Daily is not only half the mind behind the new Firefighter Netcast Show (debuting January 12th), but is a great fire service read with the 360 burn size up of the web feature and others.  He has a nice bit about how he has gotten this far and a great recap of why he likes each of the other contenders for the FC2009, but I heard he leaves his trash out all night, so I can’t vote for him. Yeah, the trash.

Firegeezer is the site that gave me my big break.  Between Old Man Geezer on the fire side and that Fossil of a Medic Ward covering EMS they are your one stop shop for everything Fire and EMS.  Wait, that makes it sound like I should vote for them.  I take it back, they just sell mugs, pay them no attention.  No attention at all, that’s it.

999Medic is a fraud.  A complete fraud.  The guy got all the way here and he isn’t even a Paramedic.  True story.  I’m surprised he hasn’t been disqualified already.  Just because he created the Handover Blog carnival…big whoop!  I met him and he isn’t even the guy in his photos…or something…well I can’t vote for him now anyway.

STATter911 isn’t just Dave Statter you know.  It’s a bot!  How else could one man post pictures and a news report from a fire that hasn’t even started yet?  Whenever someone asks me something about the fire service, I check statter911 first to see if it’s true, then claim the information as my own.  No way is STATter911 eligible, way too accurate.  Look over there now, I bet there’s already a story about who won this contest and it’s only the 6th!  Can’t give you my vote. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Rescuing Providence is written by a Lieutenant with a bad back!  Ignore the whole published author, writing style and emotion on the blog, pay attention to the fact he is injured!  Just because he’s making a movie from his wonderful writing doesn’t make him the best, does it?  Sorry Lt Morse, if you were healthy I’d give you my vote. Yeah. Yeah, injured.

Firehouse Zen seems like a great choice for fire/EMS blog of the year, but look again.  Most of his posts are about responsible leadership and thinking through decisions on the fireground.  If I wanted to be responsible I’d work for UPS.  UPS, or maybe the TSA.  yeah, TSA, thet’s the ticket.  Too much white helmet stuff, Mick, I can’t give you my vote.

Everyday EMS Tips by Greg Friese?  That guy has 11 billiondy learning websites and has a huge impact on young paramedics and EMTs.  EMS Bootcamp?  Seriously?  If I was a smart guy I could do all that teaching stuff too Greg.  And all the twitter updates.  Shoot…um…well…you’re too…um…teachy.  Yeah, too teachy, no vote.

The EMT Spot – “I’m Steve Whitehead and I write posts that make you really think about your job and those around you.  And I have the coolest banner on the interwebs.”  He actually told that to me once, so no way am I voting for him.

Engine 9 RFD.   A single engine blogs from all three shifts about life in Roanoke?  I know, but this video alone gets them my vote for Fire/EMS blog of the year.  If that isn’t a firehouse video, I don’t know what is.  This video gets my official 10th LOL on the interwebs machine.  Even the music was timed perfectly.

I am also very appreciative to the Fire Critic, the other mind behind the Firefighter netcast, for creating this contest and letting me be a part of it.  I hope to win and have hired a large group of alzheimers patients to vote for me every day.  So there.  Ha!

In all honesty, friends, this is an impossible field for me to choose from.  I will vote for everyone because I read them all regularly and respect their motives, content and intentions.  I chose everyone. Everyone, yeah.

  3. Shoes specially made for losing weight are available today and [B][URL=]mbt sandals[/URL][/B] can be quite effective. These shoes have been out for a while and some companies have risen to the top [B]mbt shoes review[/B] demonstrated that they can provide a quality product to consumers. One [U]MBT[/U] such type of these shoes is the MBT Shoe made by a company called Swiss Masai. In case you [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] did not MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. In this write up we want to take a [U]mbt sneakers[/U] closer look at these special shoes.

    The development and idea behind the MBT shoe design is quite [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] interesting. What the shoe attempts to do is structure the shape of the shoe so [U]mbt sneakers[/U] that it simulates walking on sand. Specifically, the they want to attempt to make it as if you are walking [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] along the natural sand environment of the Masai in Kenya. Sports trainers have known for quite a while now [U]mbt shoes clearance[/U] that working out on dry sand is a great way to get in excellent cardiovascular condition. As you [U]MBT shoes[/U] walk on sand it creates an uneven surface on your feet and it forces you to shift your center of gravity to [U]mbt shoes review[/U] an unnatural position. Your body compensates for this by using several different [B]mbt sneakers[/B] muscle groups in your feet, calves, thighs, and torso that you would not use wearing typical shoes. This is the ideas [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] behind the MBT weight loss shoes and it does seem to [B][URL=]MBT shoes[/URL][/B] work for some people.

    More specifically, MBT makes several positive claims [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] and benefits from wearing their shoes. They will take muscle groups [U][B]MBT shoes[/U][/B] not normally used in walking and make them active. The shoes will give you a better posture, and a more effective [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] gait when walking with or without the shoes. It can [B]mbt sneakers[/B] potentially help you with problems you may have with your back, hips, legs, and feet. The [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] shoes can help you recover from injuries to your [B]MBT shoes[/B] tendons, joints, ligaments, or muscles. The shoes are also designed to alleviate tension and stress [U]MBT shoes[/U] on your lower joints.

    Overall owners of the MBT shoe really like the results. [B]mbt sandals[/B] It is typical that if you walk for three or four miles at a time for several times [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] per week you will experience some weight loss. Some people are using them for every day [U]mbt shoes best prices[/U] use and find that this helps to keep their legs toned and looking nice. These are just walking [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] shoes you really do not want to use them for running. It is recommended that you go to a store and try them on, as you [B]MBT[/B] want to make sure the heel is snug and fits correctly. If the shoes fit correctly they should feel snug and it should [B]mbt sneakers[/B] feel as though you are walking on stilts when you walk in [U]mbt sandals[/U] them.
