I'm very embarrassed to admit I have 6 posts in draft form. Since I haven't posted since, what, March?... It's time I get my blogging juices flowing again by just putting SOMETHING live on the internet and then recommitting to posting more frequently (and to finishing those 6 posts!).
The interesting thing is I don't have readers that follow everything I post, it's more like a bunch of random people who come to learn about one particular thing I have blogged about and pops up on their search engine. Which is great, I'm glad to be an educational source in any capacity. But it does kind of lend itself to me being lazy. People can still access my very popular posts anytime, so I don't feel like I'm letting anyone down or anything. In fact, the posts I do like this one that doesn't have a specific scientific topic, usually don't even get read.
This blog has been my life, my love, my passion for almost 2 years, but the honest truth is - I got a boyfriend in March and since then my "free time" has no longer been used on blogging! I have, however been doing lots of awesome real-life stuff. Here, I'll put some pics to prove it! (Posted at the bottom.)
But I miss my blog and I feel I've been neglecting a huge part of "me", and I need to get back to it.
starts Monday so this is a good chance to focus more on science and
learning- my blog helps me do that by focusing my own studies and
expanding on them. Luckily I am taking NEUROSCIENCE this semester, and
I'm so excited you don't even know! So I bet you'll be seeing lots of
posts related to that topic.
I think another reason for
my recent blog laziness is that I got more involved on Facebook. I
found lots of really awesome science pages that post way cool stuff, so
I've been getting my science fix that way. Some of my favorites are: Science Is Awesome
, Give a S*** About Nature
, All Science All The Time
, Nerds Do It Better
, Science: The Magic of Reality
, Science Alert
and lots more. I get posts from probably 20 different places, it's
awesome. What I need to actually do is find out the info there, and
then post it here! I will try to start doing that and getting the info
out to more people in Google search land.
So, here we go, another semester of awesome learning, coming right up!
