As a scientist blogger, I have a lot to be thankful for as Thanksgiving approaches so I wanted to say “Thanks.”
First, I want to thank the readers of this blog who make it a reality. If no one reads a blog, then pretty much it doesn’t exist for all intents and purposes.
Second, I want to thank the commenters on this blog.
They enrich the dialogue and often teach me and others important things. They sometimes also point out where I screwed up and as much as that’s not fun, it is important an helpful. They link to helpful resources. And a whole lot more. I want to single out in particular a few more active & helpful commenters for special thanks including the prolific Brian Sanderson, Jeanne Loring, Bob Geller, Shinsakan, Amy Price, msemporda, and Hank.
I also want to thank my friends who often act as ad hoc advisors or mentors to me including not only the many who must remain anonymous for various reasons, but also specifically Kelly Hills, Jeanne Loring, Meri Firpo, and Leigh Turner. These folks deserve a huge hat tip.
Finally, I want to give a big thank you to the guest bloggers who made this blog more diverse in its content.
