Hello, College Blogging Scholarship reviewer and other casual viewers

I see the hits from people examining the finalist blogs (including this one) at the 2007 College Blogging Scholarship are up, presumably since this is the last weekend of voting (insert obligatory “please vote for me” plea here).

I have a favor to ask of you, and everyone else who happens to stumble on this blog one way or another (including my regular readers): Please tell me something about your impression of this blog. Even if all you have time for is a quick one-sentence comment, praise for something you like or thoughtful criticism of something you don’t like, or just something that you thought was noteworthy, it will help me improve the blog. No registration is necessary to comment.

If you have time for a more detailed comment, some opinions as to what else you might be interested in seeing here would be helpful. For example, I’m considering trying to do a regular or semi-regular podcast. Would that be of interest? More pictures? More detailed discussions of scientific matters? Naked pictures of myself? (Okay, almost none of you would really want the latter…)

I’m actually more interested in your opinions than your votes, though if I can have both I would obviously be grateful…

I shall return again to the science nerdity intended for a broad not-necessarily-nerdy audience shortly. Thank you.

  1. I enjoyed the pictures and dialog about Yellowstone, but I am rather fond of Yellowstone in the first place. I appreciate that your explanations of scientific things can actually make sense to me at least sometimes. I am not a scientific person, so it helps.

  2. First of all.. I really like your blog. =)

    I’m especially fond of your ongoing series of “hillbilly science projects”.. even though I admit to being very sceptic that they could actually work.

    I do think juicing up every post with some picture, any picture, really, would help to make the blog even easier to digest.

    Greets from Berlin, Germany!

  3. Hmmm, that’s several people now how have mentioned pictures (I had a brief email exchange with the proprietor of Small Things Considered, and he had also mentioned images.

    Thanks for letting me know, I’ll start incorporating more pictures into the blog posts!

    Greetings back TO Berlin, Germany as well! There will also be more hillbilly biotech in the near future, I promise – there are several things that I’d like to play with in that category.
