Tell me what you think about this website

To any and all readers:

I’ve been writing for Not Exactly Rocket Science for about 9 months now and am enjoying it more than ever.

What I want to know is: what do you think about it?

What do you think about the site design, the topics covered, my writing style, etc. etc?

What works for you and what doesn’t work?

What could be improved?

Please post replies below or send me an email.

Cheers,

  1. I really enjoy your writing style. I like the way you introduce the latest study with some context, showing why it’s important or what it means.

  2. Overall, I think your blog is one of the top two or three I’ve found on the net for science writing. The writing is clear, concise, and interesting. You neither talk down to your readers nor mystify them with undefined jargon. And you live up to your mission statement beautifully. I think you’re doing a much needed public service. The word “excellent” easily comes to mind when thinking of your blog.

    Then again, I’ve been certified by the U.S. Government as a raving lunatic, so you might want to take my opinion with a grain of salt. 🙂

  3. I agree with Paul (except for the part about being certified as a raving lunatic). I’ve recommended your site to several of my students. The material on it is clear and interesting, and seems to cover a range of topics not found on other science blogs I’ve looked at. Thanks and please keep it up!

  4. I think it’s great! I love reading these, and just for fun.😀

  5. Hi. I think your blog is very interesting! It is concise and as far as I can tell, extremely well written. I’m a Vet student and I hang out for the medicine and biology stuff (human and non human)! I’m glad I found it (shameless plug or no :o) ). I just wish there was a little more in-text referencing in your work. It would help me verify your detail and make it easier to complete wider reading on some of the more interesting topics.

  6. Everyone, thanks so much for the kind encouragement. It really means a lot.

    Nishma – all the stories on the blog are based on single research papers that are referenced at the end of the article. My advice on wider reading would be to have a look at the primary papers and check out the references in the introduction sections. They’re almost always from Nature, Science or PNAS which should be available to most science-based colleges or universities. Hope that helps, E
