This post is a day overdue, I know, I know….

But I have a good excuse, I was off work ill yesterday.  I don’t usually take sick days, so I wasn’t quite sure what to do with myself…In the end I opted for a hot bath, some fresh air and a lot of podcasts.

You might be wondering at this point, what does any of this have to do with Thursday’s Blogging 101 & Writing 101 tasks?  And what’s with that tasty looking photo?

Blogging 101 – Day 1: Introduce yourself!


My name is Jen, and if you’re following this, or any of my previous blogs, I think it will have become very apparent that I’m an awful blogger.

You’d think that anyone attached permanently, as I am, to their mobile phone would find the allure of blogging irresistible.  But time and again I find myself with a head that’s full of thoughts and a blog that’s intimidatingly empty.

This is why I’ve signed up to Blogging U, a site that assigns daily tasks to those new to blogging.  I’m several days (weeks?) behind with my tasks but I’m looking forward to completing them at my own slow pace.

As for my interests: I’m a physicist doing a PhD in bioinformatics, I grew up on a small island but currently live in the UK, I love tea & books and, now separated from the sea, I’ve taken to rambling through the countryside.  I’d like my blog to reflect a little bit of all of these (:

Looking forward to reading posts from other science folk, book fans and Blogging U participants.

I hope you enjoy my blog!
