As I promised, I’m posting a list of my fellow blogathoners, more than a hundred strong. I’m inspired to be in such a large group, but it’s also a little daunting. (Thanks again to Michelle Rafter, our fearless organizer). Here’s to day 4– More science tomorrow.
I’m back for the WordCount May Blogathon again this year. Daily blogging each day in May was both challenging and fun last year, and I’m hoping that I’m up to the challenge again this year. More details about my partners in posting soon.
This time last year I wondered if I’d manage to post each day. This year, follow-up pressure has me nervous. I did it last year, but can I do it again? It’s already a busy May, and I hope I’m up to the task.
If you’ve visited before or you land here for the first time, feel free to drop me a note and say hello. Or if you have ideas or suggestions for science-y posts, I’d love to hear about them. I’m looking forward to learning and growing this month.
I had so much fun with the Official May Blogathon Guest Post Day last Thursday that Webb of Science is doing another Guest Post Day today. This week I’m hosting Jennifer L.W. Fink of Blogging ‘Bout Boys. One of the treats of this month long blogaganza has been making new friends and reading their work. I’ve enjoyed reading Jenny, and I hope you’ll enjoy her guest post.
By the way, if you’re looking for me today, I’m visiting Jenny’s blog with a Molecule-of-the-Weekesque post about testosterone.
The May Blogathon is having an official guest-post day on Thursday, May 21. Webb of Science will be hosting Kate Reilly, mistress of the Polka Dot Suitcase : a world of creative fun, whimsical ideas, and interesting projects. Kate and I are trading that day, so if you’re looking for me on Thursday, I’ll be hanging out at Chez Polka Dot.
So, it’s day 2 of the May blog-a-thon, and here are my fellow writer-bloggers who are undertaking the challenge. Some are brand new bloggers. Some have been doing this far longer than I have. But all of us are professional writers. So the trick will be finding words, ideas, and those corners of time to keep this up over the next 30 days.

Happy blogging, everyone!
So (gulp)– I’ll be blogging every day for the next 31 days. It’s an experiment– in discipline, stamina, and hopefully creativity. I’ve had a few ideas of what I’d like to try out on this blog, and producing 31 straight days of content will force me to play, try some new things, and see what I like and don’t like.
If you’re new to my blog or coming back for a repeat visit, I hope you’ll offer encouragement if you like what you see, other points of view, or suggestions for improvement. My thoughts will be spinning.
More about my fellow blog-a-thoners to come soon. . . .
