Ed Yong has started a “who the heck are you, dear reader?!?!” meme that is floating around with my Sciblngs. If you haven’t already visited a thousand other blogs and read it a million times, here’s what he posted:
1) Tell me about you. Who are you? Do you have a background in science? If so, what draws you here as opposed to meatier, more academic fare? And if not, what brought you here and why have you stayed? Let loose with those comments.
2) Tell someone else about this blog and in particular, try and choose someone who’s not a scientist but who you think might be interested in the type of stuff found in this blog. Ever had family members or groups of friends who’ve been giving you strange, pitying looks when you try to wax scientific on them? Send ‘em here and let’s see what they say.
I’m sure you’ve already had your chance to wax eloquent on any of a number of other blogs at this point. If, however, you still wish to play the game, or just want to humor me and let me know who it is that reads the various natterings that comprise this particular blog, why then, have at it in the comments! I feel that I know a number of my regular commenters in some way already, but this would be a chance for the lurkers among you to out yourselves and speak up. I’d be particularly interested in hearing from any of you d00dz who’ve been following the Gender Knot posts, too. Hugs to all of my readers, whether you post in the comments here or not.
