So, the Big Day has finally arrived - the inauguration of the new SEED scienceblogs homepage and the addition of 24 new bloggers to the stable, including me - yeay! So, go check out the brand new front page and all the old and new bloggers there.
My new blog, a fusion of all three of my blogs, is a new brand, with a new name - A Blog Around The Clock, reflecting my age and musical taste, my usual blogging frequency and the area of my scientific expertise, all in one title.
Please change your bookmarks, blogrolls and newsfeeds to reflect this move.
As I said before, Circadiana and The Magic School Bus will be closed (but not deleted), while Science And Politics will slow down and will re-focus on local North Carolina topics, including local politics (which includes following the career of John Edwards), and perhaps an occasional post for my readers from the Balkans. If you are still interested in those topics, you are welcome to retain the bookmarks, blogrolls and newsfeeds for Science And Politics as well, but I will not be insulted if you do not, as my main blogging effort will be over here, on my new SB blog.
I encourage you to go and check all 24 newbies over on the main page - all wonderful bloggers you should read if you are interested in science. Let me introduce my new fraternity-mates to you:
Finally, Jonah Lerer is a SEED staffer, starting his own blog called The Frontal Cortex.
There were very few surprises for me on this list. Two good blogfriends of mine (Revere and Mike the Mad Biologist) managed to keep me in the dark about their move until two days ago. On the other hand, two bloggers I thought were going to accept the invitation, are not on the list (yet?). Almost all of the others I knew about well ahead of time - that is the nature of the beast: we science bloggers are a tight bunch and keep in touch behind the scenes via e-mail or even in person so no secrets can be kept from circulating around for too long.
The SEED overlords intend to add more bloggers before the end of the year so keep an eye on SEED - that is where the SciBlogging action is now and is going to be in the future.
Thank you - now let's see if comment e-mail notification works!
How exciting to finally be here, its like Christmas! I love your banner btw. Very creative!
Looks like the move went smoothly. The new banner designed by Carel is wonderful. All the best with your new blog!
Congrats, Bora. I hope this move propels you to greater heights of blogging excellence.
The banner looks great!!. Kudos to Carel, and you, for great taste!
I'm joing the ranks of people who think the banner is great and very happy that you will be combining your 3 blogs into this one. Will you continue to post your lecture notes here? I have really enjoyed reading about the biology class and reading the lecture notes.
Yes, I will continue postng my lecture notes. If I do not drop dead of exhaustion I will post the next installment tonight.
Everything and every kind of topic I posted on the old blogs will continue here - no pulling the punches.
Bora, mutual congratulations and best wishes on the new blog. A lovely banner, indeed, and thanks for posting the full version for us to examine more closely.
Sorry to miss you last night but an illness has taken hold at the PharmBoy Family headquarters. Perhaps champagne or Bordeaux over the weekend?
Yup, we gotta do something - e-mail me later tonight.
Hey, thanks for the acknowledgment, Corturnix! I owe you a prolonged primately grooming session.
Bonobo grooming session - that can get rowdy. I am already excited!
Is there any science blogger, except Sean Carroll, who's not yet on Science Blogs?
Hey, Bora. Congrats on the move and thanks again for providing us all such useful information on the blogosphere.
Oops, I used my old web address on that one. This is better....
I've changed your link at my blog and put up a note; now let's hope the rest of TLC and the world follows.
As we say in theatre, break a leg!
Thank you all.
Alon: Actually, there are more science blogs, but SEED now own almost 10% of them all!
Nick: Great to share this space with you.
Bobby: I saw that a couple of TLC people have already changed the bookmark, but the automated blogroll needs to be changed as well, or perhaps just keep Sci&Pol there, as it will keep runnning as a political blog.
Hi! I am curious: the new bloggers are invited by ScienceBlogs or they ask for it?
Both - there is a "Blog with us" button up on top of the page if you want to be considered. Some have been asked.
