Academeology

I reviewed Female Science Professor's book, Academeology: Random Musings, Strong Opinions & Somewhat Bizarre Anecdotes from an Academic Life, for the latest issue of Nature.

The very short version: I enjoyed reading Academeology, but I prefer FSP's blog.

I never thought blogging would be what lead to my publication in one of the "big three" science journals!

Congratulations, Peggy. I enjoyed reading your review.

Congrats Peggy! Can you explain how blogging lead to this publication?

Peggy said...

Maxine: glad you enjoyed it

Amber: Before I started blogging about women in science, there is no way I would have been considered to have the expertise to review a book by a woman science blogger.

Thanks for the response. I'm writing an article for AWIS Magazine about blogging and women scientist. Would you mind if I include you in the article? Also, did you establish this blog site and if so, why did you feel there was a need for it?

Amber: I don't mind if you include me about the article. Why don't you send me an email with questions - I'll be gone for most of this week, but I'll try to get to them.
