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!
