Publish or Perish

So, a career in research science is by no means an easy one - quite often the phrase most bandied about is "Publish or Perish" which basically means you're only as good as your last publication and so if you're not publishing, things are going to get pretty sticky in the petri dish of life for you.

I got to thinking that the world of blogging is similar - what is it that keeps you coming back to a blog? If you're not updating, surely your followers will go elsewhere.

Here at the Craft Laboratory, I've decided to experiment with how I introduce topics. Like a scientific manuscript, there'll be sections entitled Aims, Hypotheses, Materials and Methods, Results, Conclusions and the all important Bibliography...stayed tuned!
