I’m not sure if this post should be short or long, a personal intro to my life, a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of what I hope to publish.
Regardless, I just clicked the “New Post” button and am publishing a post today. I’ve followed the advice and tried not to worry about how the blog looks. I didn’t have to worry about naming the blog as it is about me.
Why do this?
- An online repository for my research activities beyond my iCloud account and the recruitment systems of various universities.
- A place to help focus my own ideas about my research.
- Somewhere to share photos from the places I get to travel to as part of my job.
- Dip a toe into the world of writing outside of scientific peer-reviewed journals.
If this blog has any views throughout the next year, except my friends and family, then I will consider it an accomplishment.
