What’s this all about then, eh?
Before I go any further, I should point out that blogging and I have a spotty history. I’ve managed at least four different kinda blogs with mixed results, mostly arising from my inability to stay focused and my tendency to disappear for the span of entire seasons.
However, as part of this whole internet self-promotion business, it probably makes sense to set aside a bit of real estate to talk about what I’m doing these days. And since much of what I’m doing on any given day consists of reading more research article abstracts than a busload of graduate students, I’ll probably use this as a platform to talk about cool stuff I’ve read that I may or may not be writing about in a “professional” capacity. I’m not going to pretend that I’ll suddenly turn into Carl Zimmer or Ed Yong and churn out award-winning insightful prose on a daily basis – this ain’t that kinda website. Not yet, anyway – let’s see what happens in 6 months, and whether I’ve gotten distracted by something shiny.
I’ll also occasionally put up old and new pics that I think are neat, and talk about any random projects I happen to embark on.
Of course, I also think about a lot of stupid, random stuff which probably doesn’t have much business living the same place where I’m promoting my work. If you’re more interested in the silly dreck, please visit my other blog!
That’s it for now…
