I started this blog not only as an outlet for my writing but, more importantly, as an effort to demystify science to the lay reader. Of course, I’m far from alone in this sentiment; there are plenty of science blogs each trying to communicate some part of this immense undertaking. Collective Marvelling is a network of blogs written by young researchers, an attempt to bring together discussions that might otherwise happen in disparate places. Snippets from each member blog are cross-posted on CM, making it a central resource for science news. I’ve joined the network and added a link to Collective Marvelling at the top and in the sidebar. Go ahead and have a look; it’s already aggregating content from the excellent The Trenches of Discovery, Blank on the Map, Cross Sections and Lumps ‘N’ Bumps
