I cannot believe it's been two years since I started blogging about science (where does time go?!)
But I guess time flies when you're having fun...
I dived into the deep end when I started this blog, after being hesitant to start it for about a year. Now it's something I am very happy and proud to have initiated and made it into a "portfolio" for my writing - which I'm still working on, still practising (I am not a professional - yet! ;) ).
Why I started my blog?
Becuase I wanted a career change. After I graduated I didn't feel like my place was in the lab. Not that I hate working in the lab, actually the opposite, I loved it. But I think that as much as the world needs great scientific research it also needs great science communication.
What have I gained so far?
- My job as a junior medical writer in medical communications! (although medical communications is completely different from science communications, my blog was a good example of my writing skills which got me the job at a renowned med comms agency. A future post on medical communications vs. science communications will be coming on this blog.)
- Learning the different types of science communication and when and where they are used
- Being able to research different scientific topics whilst writing about them
- Great readers - obviously! Thank you for reading. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
Here's to many more years to come!
Hi there, just wanted to say I really love going through your blog since I bumped into it a few months ago. I myself am in the process of setting up my personal science blog and I must admit I have got most of my inspiration from yours! Congrats and keep writing!ReplyDelete
Thanks for reading and commenting Soumya, and I wish you all the best with your own science blog. Looking great so far! :)Delete
