The Future Of This Blog

After being on hiatus for quite awhile I have been feeling the urge to write again. A large part of the reason for the hiatus was frustration at obtaining the science articles on the subjects I wanted to write about. Since I’m not in Academia I am dependent on an article being open access or on the kindness of readers. This created a lot of frustration and eventual burnout. This time around I plan on changing things a little. Rather than focus on the current breaking news in anthropology and science I will be focusing on what I have the resources to write about. That said, if I can come up with the science article behind the “new” story so much the better. I also don’t plan on blogging at the same pace as before. Look for 2-3 posts a week, more or less.

I have always loved to fish (even though I don’t eat fish – other than walleye) and this spring I decided to take up fly fishing and have learned how to tie flies as well, so I will be adding a page on my adventures with fly fishing. I’ll call the page Trout Madness in tribute to Robert Traver (pen name of John Voelker).

I am working on my first science post – on whales – which should be up sometime in the next day or two.

Update: I also have some administrative things to do, such as cleaning up the blog roll and writing a new “About” page…

  1. Welcome back!

  2. Ceiling Cat help me, I love the smell of a creationist argument going down in flames in the morning!

  3. Blog as little as you care to. One of the points of an RSS reader is to be notified when a writer one is interested in has something new to say.

    A post on whales is appreciated as I’m currently reading Philip Hoare’s book ‘The Whale’ (and re-reading Moby Dick).

    Welcome back.

  4. Yay! That afarensis is going to be back!

  5. Geez, now that I’ve become an independent librarian/archivist I think I could help you find those articles. I had an incredible class in science reference, no less. Anyway, welcome back! (I’m coming back too, just not sure how yet.)

  6. Yes, you may have noticed I haven’t written anything yet…life kinda intervened. I hope to have something up soon.
