I’ll be leaving in one week and staying in San Francisco for one month. I’ll be busy, to say the least. What should I do with the blog in the meantime? After all, it is the middle of the summer when everyone is travelling or enjoying the great outdoors and the online traffic is pitiful – my traffic is about half of what I had in April and May. So, I doubt I’ll be penning long thoughtful essays (unless I get really inspired once or twice).
I think I’ll sit down one of these days before I leave and schedule for automatic posting a Clock Quote to appear every day around 4am for the next month or so.
Perhaps I’ll pick some of my ‘greatest hits’ and repost them as well, perhaps two per day, all science, no politics. How about the entire Clock Tutorials plus some of the best from the Clock Zoo, Clock News and Friday Weird Sex Blogging categories? After all, my traffic is, even during the summer slump, double of what it was when I just joined scienceblogs.com, so there must be a bunch of readers who have not read some of the good old stuff yet.
I check ScienceDaily every night anyway, so I’ll probably continue to post my picks every or almost every day – that really takes just a few extra minutes.
I’ll meet a lot of people and take pictures, so I’ll post those whenever I find a minute and of course, I’ll let you know what I’m doing and what I’m seeing and whom I’m meeting while there (especially liveblogging the Science Foo Camp in the early August). And if you are in the area, e-mail me and we can meet in person.
What’s the weather like in SF in July? Will I need a sweater for a chilly night? Something against rain? Or are t-shirts sufficient?
