I’ve just been contacted by someone who runs the blog yourbikeisrad letting me know that my blog contains the only google hit for the “word” yourblogisshit. This is due to a throwaway joke on the “about me” page. I’d like to take this opportunity to state categorically that myblogisnotshit, and mybikeisnotrad.

I’ve had another two posts published over at the Vitae researcher blogs. One is on organising your references with citeulike (a website that I think is brilliant), and the other is on what makes a good academic homepage. The homepage question is a big one, I think – all of us academics have a homepage of some kind, but there’s little consensus about what should go on them. So if you’ve got some opinions do pop over to the vitae blogs and leave a comment.

In the month and a half since I opened this blog, I’ve had 258 spam comments and 5 real ones… so I’ve installed anti-spam measures (specifically Akismet). It’s caught 100 new spams since last week, and no real comments, so I’ve decided that life’s too short to check the spam queue. If you post a comment and it doesn’t appear within a day or so, it’s probably just that it got stuck in the spam queue so drop me an email and I’ll sort it out.
