I hate vanity posts — who the fuck outside my mom cares how I’m doing, and she don’t read this — but I feel somewhat obliged to explain the lack of activity on this unread blog. This is especially important in case my Seed overlords stop by and notice a stark absence of any recent posts and a deficiency in posting regularity over the past couple of weeks. Aside from the few regular visitors, I doubt anyone has noticed the near death of evolgen.
That said, here’s what I’ve been up to instead of blogging. I’m in the middle of that clusterfuck known as the last year of grad school. Those of you who have been through it know it’s a painful combination of trying to complete your research, trying to write your dissertation, trying to publish the unpublished parts, trying to find a post-doc, and trying to find a granting agency willing to give you a fellowship to fund that illusive post-doc. I have my priorities in order, and blogging isn’t anywhere near the top of the list. Maybe if Seed were to offer me a cool $1k per unique visit, evolgen would become obligation number one. Scratch that — I’ll take 1.000 euro (note the decimal rather than a comma), or even $1k Canadian. Considering the high pay-out is unlikely, this blog will remain in a persistent vegetative state for the near future.
Hey! You looked below the fold. This may or may not be a scam. Do you know jack-shit about evolutionary genetics? Want to write my blog for me? Send me an email or drop a note in the comments.
