There was a conference on Blogging microbes at Nottingham University, with talks from Alan Cann, Shuna Gold, James Gurney and Oscar Rosales, organised by Ivan Lafayette from the Toxicologist Today.
Oh yeah, and I was there as well, talking about how blogging can enhance your scientific career.
We had a lot of fun there, it was crazy meeting other bloggers, and the people who read blogs. It was a really great atmosphere, and it was interesting meeting some of the other people in the community in real life.
It's also time that I confessed. I've been cheating on you guys with another blog. I've started contributing to Sciencemadeeasy.kinja.com. I curate and contribute content there, aimed more towards a general audience than this blog. If you just want to read the stuff I write, then check out Faz-alam.kinja.com.
I have no plans to leave field of science, as there is definitely some content I would like to contribute here, such as the MicroTwJC summaries, which wouldn't really fit for a lay audience. So keep an eye on this space as well.
