another blogiversary

in Me

Hard to believe I’m beginning my third year as a blogger, considering how many blogs go extinct. Of course, at times Bootstrap has felt a little moribund (like lately).

Nonetheless, the year in blogging has had some cool highlights for me:

  • Being named as one of the journal Nature’s 50 Popular Science Blogs (Bootstrap was #29).
  • The Annals of Improbable Research blog linking to one of my posts.
  • Asking to be part of the ScienceBlogs stable, even though I declined the invite.
  • Having one of my posts being chosen for the “The Open Laboratory,” the 2006 science blogging anthology.
  • Making “Favored Nation Status” (now called the “Favored Faithful”) over at Somewhere on the Masthead.  Magazine Man is a writer and editor I totally admire, so I was slightly giddy when I saw he felt I was worthy of linkage.

I must have done a few things right over the past year, although I don’t feel like I’ve lived up to expectations recently. I just had dinner with my good friend Bob, who thinks I should write more personal stories.  In honor of all the big changes coming up in his life, maybe I’ll do that!  Just need to carve out a little more time…

How about Chocolate layer cake with mint icing and rasberry filling between the layers?

Congrats! And the accolades are well deserved.

I say yes to personal posts at least every now and then. You can't deny what a CLASSIC the earworm saga has become!
