You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no telling where you might be swept off to.
– Bilbo Baggins (The Fellowship of the Ring)
When I started blogging over 3 years ago (and tweeting sometime later), I had no clue where it was going to take me.
Today it takes me to new blogging lab/studio!
My ‘home’ blog, Ever On & On, will remain right here. And I will continue to post here about life as a postdoc, the culture of biomed research, and other miscellany. But…
I’m excited to join the Scientopia collective! Some ideas had been squirming around in my head, but I just hadn’t gotten around to acting on them here. I decided to use the Scientopia invite as nudge to experiment with new directions. At Transient Interactions, I plan to write more about biochemistry research and the communication of research.
A couple of other notes on where I’ve been…
I wrote an essay about science, scientists, and social media for ASBMB Today, a monthly magazine for members of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Check it out – The expanding multiverse of the scientific community: new media for communication.
And you can now find Biochembelle – along with 49 other awesome science bloggers and writers and 1 poet – in print! I’m both ecstatic and humbled to have my post on Fritz Haber and judging greatness in science featured in The Best Science Writing Online 2012, the sixth anthology of the Open Lab series (which you can pick up on Amazon).
When I started blogging, I didn’t know where it was going to take me. But I’m glad it did, and I look forward to all the other ‘places’ it sweeps me off to.
