Around 18 months ago I started writing a blog on Posterous [http://ps-spencer.posterous.com/]. It was my way of keeping my thoughts about the researcher skills development workshops that I run out of my head, allowing me to focus on other things that were coming up. I really like the simplicity of the Posterous platform, it makes it easier to focus on writing something and sharing presentation materials. Yet, ever since Posterous was bought out by Twitter I have been looking over the fence at the other blogging platforms; partly because I fear that Posterous will disappear and partly because I think I am ready to experiment with a more comprehensive blogging platform.
So here we are, I’ve moved house to WordPress.com and, much like moving house in the real world, I have brought most of my stuff lock, stock & barrel over from the old place. I am settling in and I find myself re-arranging the furniture to suit the new pad.
I hope you like it.
I’m a former researcher into the microbiology of the mouth who now runs a skills development programme for other researchers.
