Oh, kids. I have been so busy balancing day-job, poem-writing, and summer-celebrating that I’ve neglected this blog for a couple weeks. In my spare moments, though, I have been doing a lot of sciencey essay and article reading, so I thought hhmmm…until I can finish some new deep, wacky, joyous blog posts for this month, I can share with you links to my favorite sites of late. They are collectively aesthetically beautiful, challenging, geeky websites with fascinating content, in my humble opinion. I recommend subscribing to all of them – most have a free weekly email of articles published.

This is dedicated to all the awesome female scientists who tweeted hilariously about being #distractinglysexy in response to Tim Hunt’s comments regarding the “trouble with girls” in science labs.

Well, I’m on Twitter.

Yes, I don’t know how this happened, but this is happening.  I have put it off for as long as I could, assuming that it would be annoying, time-consuming, stressful, ridiculous, whatever.  But it’s not!  I’m tweeting!

I’m having a great time, actually.  Connecting with writers, artists, musicians, journals and even a whiskey distillery here in Wyoming.  I get to share all the crazy fun bits and bobs I encounter on the web every day while researching and writing (or pretending I’m researching and writing).  And I can follow the peeps I really dig, like @caryannhearst, @feliciaday, @DavidQuammen, and @BitchMedia.

Sometimes people even follow ME!  You should follow me!
