3 anniversaries, 300 posts, 2 years and 6 months

Gabe-birthday-part.jpgI like anniversaries and it’s a good month for them.
Last Wednesday marked two years since I started Not Exactly Rocket Science at its humble WordPress beginnings.
Next Monday marks six months of blogging at ScienceBlogs.
And that last article on face recognition is the 300th post I’ve written for this blog!
A massive thanks to everyone who reads this blog, links to it and comments on it; to Ginny, Erin and the rest of the team at ScienceBlogs and SEED; to my fellow Sciblings for support and encouragement; and to Mike and Dennis for their SuperReaders skillz.
Writing here is one of the most fulfilling things I get to do and I hope to stick with it for many years to come.

  1. Thanks for all your great translation of research. I use you as a positive example in our science communication & advocacy training group.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Congratulations, I hope for thousands more.

    I love blogs like this (I also read BadAstronomer for Phil Plait’s interpretations and DamnInteresting because it’s damn interesting) since they give me new information in the form of a great read that I can use to ask more questions and learn more about the world.
    This is what the internet is for! Go man go!

  4. Congratulations! If only I had your writing style! Great story telling.

    Congrats! Still one of my favorite all-round science blogs. Your explanations of wide range of subjects are very readable and always informative. And fun too! Glad to see you settled into your new home. Keep up the great work.
