OK, a small bit of self-promotion on here. This last week the Musings had entry number 1250! Wooo. While there’s been various guest posts and interviews, obviously I’m really proud to have worked up to this figure – that’s a lot of entries and information out there.
On top of that, this morning I posted my 1000th answer on Ask A Biologist, which rather appropriately was about pterosaur evolution.
I’ve already hit nearly 50 entries in the Guardian over the last few months, and while Dinobase seems to be down at the moment, there were the best part of a 100 entries on there before I moved to WordPress. On top of that, there’s Pterosaur.net and the accompanying blog, various magazine articles, guest posts on other blogs, podcasts and the like I’ve put together. All of this has been in the last 5 and a bit years. That’s averaging out at a post or entry around every 0.8 days (and not including the thousands of comments I’ve had answering people’s questions about posts or the e-mails I get).
I genuinely do all of this because I like it and think it’s important. I can’t imagine I haven’t reached really quite a good number of people and helped get more people interested and involved in palaeontology and outreach.
And yeah, I’d be stupid at this point not to remind you I’m still looking for sponsorship in my tyrannosaur research. Please help if you can.
