I'm not a TOTAL Blogging Slacker…

Despite my inactivity over on this blog (shameful, I know), I’m still out and about on the internets. Once I got back from my crazy-busy teaching semester, and a busy-then-relaxing two weeks in NY and PA, I got back to my regular blogging over at Discovery Space. The latest is a summary of the astronomy decadal review, which I was also madly tweeting about with other astronomers on Friday. Since it is a blog, I slipped in a few of my own reactions as a radio astronomy-loving, outreach-minded grad student, so keep that in mind.

In addition, the lovely Heidi Anderson took me on board with a host of fantastic bloggers over at She Thought. There are topics there for everyone, from photoshopped celebs to “crunchies” to bottled water. (Part II coming soon!) Please, come join the conversation…

Also, I’ve been doing my part to spread the work about Dark Skies, Bright Kids, a fantastic astronomy outreach program for which I volunteer. We’re now on Twitter and Facebook (and Flickr and YouTube), and will soon be asking for your help (through votes) to fund an exciting project. In the meantime, we’ll be sharing our lesson plans as well as other fun astronomy activities that we find. I got to talk about DSBK on Skeptically Speaking back in May, and on Podcast Beyond Belief just a little while ago. Thank you again to the lovely hosts of both shows for letting me ramble about astronomy and kids!

That’s my writing-life for now. Surely more to come…
