Hi everyone! Welcome (back) to the blog.
Long-time readers out there may remember that I had a blog on this site at one time where I gave monthly updates about the research activities of my lab. However, there were several months in a row where nothing particularly interesting happened, leading to a series of dull posts. For the past six months, we have been focused almost exclusively on field work and sorting plankton samples. It makes for boring reading when the monthly update boils down to, "Yep, we collected plankton again this month." Ultimately, I decided to take the blog down rather than flood it with boring updates saying the same thing over and over.
That said, I'm bringing the blog back. This time around, the content may be a bit more sporadic. I will only write an update when I have something interesting to say. That may be a summary of a recent or past publication from the lab, an insight into life and research here in Saudi Arabia, an fun update on ongoing lab research, or a comment on recent science news. There may be multiple posts per month, or there may be a little break between posts. The point is, I don't want to bore you with a post that doesn't really say anything.
Your best bet to hear about new posts will be to follow me on Twitter. I'm fairly active over there, and I will make sure to tweet out the link to the blog article once it's posted.
So, cool blog posts are coming again soon! I'm looking forward to writing about the work my research group is doing, and I hope you will all enjoy what is to come.
