Just A Theory has now been running for one whole month, so I thought I’d take some time to reflect on how well it is going. I’m happy that I’ve so far managed to post every single day, leading to a total of over 13,000 words published so far! I’m not going to pretend that everything I’ve written has been absolutely amazing, but I’m quite pleased with a few of my posts – these three on combating climate change, Prince Charles’ GM food bashing, and my review of The Genius of Charles Darwin in particular.
I’d be interested to know what my readers think. I know at the moment it is mostly friends and family (along with random Google searchers) checking out the site, so what do you guys think so far? I think my posts break down for the most part into three types: talking about science in the news (“This new thing has been discovered, isn’t it neat?”), talking about others talking about science (“Check this out, they’re getting it wrong/right”), and talking about science in general (such as the two posts on Euler’s equation this week). Which type of post do you prefer?
To encourage people to comment I’ve made it a bit easier by sticking a link to the form at the bottom of every post, in nice, big, friendly letters. Now you don’t have to scroll back up to the top of the post to make yourself heard! So, let me know what you think I’m doing well, and what I could do better.
