Happy New Year!

This has been A Good Year TM. I won an award, had fun reporting on the eye-opening World Conference of Science Journalists, finally joined Twitter, spoke at Science Online London and was promoted at work.

On top of that, this blog has gone from strength to strength thanks to the promotional efforts of the folks here at ScienceBlogs and the word-spreading antics of you readers. This last month, the blog has seen the largest amount of traffic it has ever seen, about four times the level of the same time last year.

So thank you to everyone for continuing to read what I churn out. It means a lot. If you want to get more of my ramblings, you can also follow me on Twitter or become a fan of this blog on Facebook.

I’ll endeavour to provide the same quality of news coverage with perhaps a few more opinion pieces on journalism and science communication, and one or two satirical send-ups. And I want to point out that Not Exactly Rocket Science has been, and always will be, free. In an age where paywalls are popping up around news sources all over the place, this blog will continue to be a place where people can get their science news solely for the price of their time.

Finally, I need to thank my amazing wife Alice, whose photo graces the sidebar. None of this would be possible without her support.

So Happy New Year everyone. I hope that, as the 21st century enters its difficult second album, you all have yourselves A Good Year TM.

  1. Happy New Year, Ed and Alice! May you continue to write many excellent posts this coming year, and may Alice continue to inspire you (or kick you in the rear when you need it, heh-heh).
    btw, you do know we expect a book from you this decade, right? 😉
