Inspired by all of the fabulous science bloggers I met at the SBC, I've decided it's high time to start blogging more about science. By this I mean blogging about peer reviewed research and synthesizing areas of research related to Beagle science (anything from 1809 to 2009 being fair game).
- Though I've always* considered myself a science blogger, when I look back at my posts over the last year, I am disappointed to see that most of them just dance around on the edges of science rather than jumping in with both feet (with some notable exceptions of which I am very proud).
- I'm coordinating the science programme for the new Beagle and I want everyone else to know--and understand--how exciting it's going to be.
- I like science, I do science, and I think there are a few people out there interested in science. Some even have a hunch that science rocks.
- Practice makes perfect. Just as Jennifer Ouellette said in her closing talk at the SBC, a blog can be considered one's "writing lab"
- This just in! I only just found out that my latest paper got accepted into PLoS ONE! In other words, I'm high on science, so there's even more reason to blog more about it.
