I like noting anniversaries, even belated ones. I hopped across to Discover from ScienceBlogs a year ago last Saturday and as if to mark the occasion, it's been a record-breaking month in terms of traffic. I've thoroughly enjoyed being here among illustrious company, and it's given me a lot of impetus to up my game, and play around with new ways of talking about science. My sincere thanks to Amos Zeeberg for recruiting me, Gemma Shusterman for providing speedy and kick-ass tech support and Eliza Strickland, Andy Moseman, Joe Calamia, and many other Discover staffers for helping to promote this blog. And of course, an even bigger shout-out to everyone who continues to read Not Exactly Rocket Science and who have passed links to their social circles.
