So i’ve tried blogspot and tumblr and no one really follows me, but I know that I have good things to say, especially about science. I am thinking about becoming a science journalist and so I’m hoping that this will be more successful and that I will find the interface more appealing.

    Just an opinion here…. but you need to establish a bit more of a presence to pick up readership. A possible approach is to go to Topics to find others who are blogging on similar topics and add ‘likes’ or comments to let them know you’re here. Categories and tags are another way for people to find you who may be interested in the topics you cover. Don’t get discouraged, it takes time, but it also takes the effort of putting out feelers! I really enjoy reading your posts. Now you just need to go find others who do, too. šŸ˜‰

    • Yeah. Unfortunately I do not have the time. For now this will serve as an archive of my academic ideas for myself and anyone interested. After I graduate, it will serve to try and get a foot in a science journal or magazine. I hope to do science writing full time. Whether it be journalism, editing, or theoretics. I do not have the experience yet to be freelance.
      Personally, I’m more fond of blogspot formatting, but someone has already stolen my title (which is like, my signature). I also have the option of buying the title itself and that would get me major kudos.

        I started with blogger, but I didn’t like the way it handled graphics (which happens to be my main focus). I also believe WordPress offers way more ‘themes’, but it takes awhile finding one that’s a good fit for what you’re trying to accomplish. Once again it’s a matter of how much time you want to invest in this objective.
