A Change of Venue

A big announcement this morning: Myrmecos has joined ScienceBlogs. Update your bookmarks!  The new URL is:


The move has been in the making for nearly a year. I guest blogged at SB’s “Photo Synthesis” last April and was invited to stay on, but I resisted for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the biggest is that I’m rather fond of WordPress as a blogging platform. I like this blog as it is, where it is, and embedded within the warm fuzzy environs of the (mostly wordpress) nature-blogging community.

But  it seemed increasingly short-sighted to forgo the greater visibility of ScienceBlogs for such curmudgeonly reasons. After all, it’s not like none of my regular readers (that’s you, Mom!) will be able to find the new location over at ScienceBlogs. Plus, I was able to move the entire archive over- comments and all.

What will change with the move? Aside from the font, my hope is not much at all. We’ll have Friday Beetles, Monday Mysteries, a bit of photography and commentary on the scientific literature. Taxonomy Fails, both mine and others. Occasional photographs of our cat. So, we’ll keep doing what we’ve been doing.  See you over there!

      Now I get to fly around the world in a private blog jet, but only if I agree to blog about squid.

  1. Congrats, Alex–your kick-off of Photo Synthesis was never matched or exceeded, so I am not surprised that ScienceBlogs continued to court you!
