When I started my Science Geek blog back in April 2014, I never expected it still to be up and running five years later. Over these five years its popularity has gradually increased, and I now have around 2,300 followers.
However, after five years of blogging I feel now that it is time for a change. So, I have decided to relaunch my blog, give it a new name, and move it across to a new domain. From now on the Science Geek blog will be called ‘Explaining Science’ and move across to www.explainingscience.org
In Explaining Science, I will write all posts under my real name rather than the pseudonym ‘The Science Geek’.
What will the content of Explaining Science be like?
I intend that the content of Explaining Science will be roughly the same as the Science Geek. It will primarily consist of articles on astronomy, space and space travel – written at a level which is easily accessible to the non-scientist but without being dumbed down. This is often a difficult balance to achieve, but I hope I manage it most of the time.
What about The Science Geek?
For the time being I will continue to own the domain www.thesciencegeek.org. This has been set up to automatically map to the new domain http://www.explainingscience.org. So, anyone entering a URL of a Science Geek post e.g.
https://thesciencegeek.org/2018/05/25/the-anthropic-principle/ will be redirected to the equivalent Explaining Science URL e.g.
https://explainingscience.org/2018/05/25/the-anthropic-principle/ to view the post
Finally, Iwould like to say a big thank you to all my readers and followers of the Science Geek and hope that you enjoy reading Explaining Science just as much over the forthcoming years.
