Ask Away August 9, 2007

I have received lots of emails asking me questions about the weird science blog. Although I replied individually to the emails, I thought it might be fun to share some of the questions and answers here. So, I’m taking a little time away from the usual science news to give some Mina news, so to speak.

Why did you do a blog instead of the other kinds of websites?

I always knew that an online magazine was not the style for me. I like to write. I mean, I really like to write – even in my spare time! The blog format is perfect for daily updates. Let’s face it – science is constantly changing and I like being able to write entries each day. I also like the casual, conversational style that flows more easily in a blog format. The worst – or maybe it’s really the best – part of blogging about science is that it’s addictive!

What’s your favorite part of science?

That’s like asking me to choose between milk and white chocolate! Do I have to answer that? Ok – my favorite part of science would have to be the medical/ health side. I still enjoy other scientific disciplines but the human body is fascinating and it’s an area that always keeps me intrigued and curious.

What kind of dog do you have and how long have you had him?

This question was in response to my post about antidepressants for dogs. My dog is a year and a half old (I’ve had him since he was a puppy!) and he is a miniature American Eskimo. He also sheds on a regular basis so I’m usually covered in white fur!

The blog style is much better. It’s so easy to post new entries. Also, they tend to get a lot more traffic than a standard website. I had a website for a few years and I don’t think that thing got as much traffic in the first year as my blog has in the first month!

Science is fun and interesting! I excelled at it in school. When I was in 5th grade, I used to watch Mr. Wizard on Nickelodeon in the morning before school. Ahh.. I miss those times. :-)

For me, I wasn’t much of a science fan back in the early school days (my interest in science came much later) but let me tell you, I was a fan of early morning cartoons. There was nothing better than a big bowl of cereal while I watched my favorite show – the Smurfs.

Well.. I’ve been “nerdy” for most of my life. Along with Mr. Wizard, I also watched Mysterious Cities of Gold on Nick in the morning. I wish they’d put that cartoon on DVD.
