It's been two months since I last blogged, and I think that this is nature's way of telling me that this blog is finished.
When I started writing this I never thought that it would take off in the way that it did – two books, a radio play, opportunities to speak to lots of people at once and of course the upcoming TV series.
But all good things come to an end and, since leaving the London Ambulance Service, my life has settled down somewhat.
Which means that I have far less to write about the ambulance service, which is what this blog very quickly became about.
So I've decided to put this blog into a 'Deep Freeze'. So the links, posts and everything else will remain here, but I won't be updating it any more. In a fortnight I'll close down the commenting system so that I don't have to spend the rest of my natural life removing spam comments.
The reasoning behind this is that this blog was supposed to be about anything – but due to it taking off as an 'ambulance blog', I felt that I was 'cheating' if I wrote something that wasn't about working on the ambulances. Now I no longer work full time on an ambulance the number of ambulance posts will decrease to almost nothing.
I'm thinking that it's for the best if this blog stays true to being about my time on the ambulances, and I start afresh somewhere else.
I shall be moving my presence on the internet over to Brian Kellett (dot) net, where I plan to write blog posts about whatever interests me. This means that if you are only interested in ambulance related blogposts as opposed to me writing about whatever tickles my fancy, this is where we part company.
For day to day things I shall be continuing to use twitter @Reynolds
If you want to read about ambulance stuff, there are a few blogs out there that I read and you might be interested in.
Insomniac Medic blogs while working for the London Ambulance Service – rather him than me.
Then there is 999Medic, Mark Glencorse, who is much more energetic than me. He's also on a mission to change ambulance services for the better.
From across the pond is Ambulance Driver Files, whose politics I almost completely disagree with. He is a top bloke and has a wry sense of humour.
And finally but not least there is Rogue Medic, another American, who posts incredibly well thought out articles about making EMS better, mostly by the use of science.
So, that's that. Time to move on to Brian Kellett (dot) net, where I shall be writing about things that interest me – not just ambulance related stuff.
And if this is farewell, then may I wish you safe travels, and I hope that while you've known me I've entertained you, and maybe made you think a little.
