Yeah, I made a blog

I figure, why not? It's about time. I've been an avid follower of folks who incrementally publish content for years, so wouldn't it be interesting to see what it's like on the other side? Now what to fill a blog with...

Hey, here's a topic I always have something to say about: cool stuff I found on the interwebs. So why don't I start it there?

Not that I'm comitting to keeping this updated. Or entertaining. Or a worthwhile place to spend time in any way. I think I'll be using this as an outlet for any impulses of "well, if I were writing blog posts, how would I do it?" and also "hey here's this thing I found!"

Oh, and about the title. I wanted something short, memorable, and reasonably easy to spell. snRNPs stands for small nuclear ribonucleoproteins, which is only important because biologists nicknamed them "snurps." Sometimes I'm really impressed by actual terms that biologists made up that sound ridiculous but have become real scientific words. This is the best example of why.

    This is my experiment in making a blog. How would I run it? How would I write the posts? How would I make it look? What would I write? And most importantly, would I lose interest in it?

    Other potential benefits: being able to write somewhere about whatever I feel like, and maybe even practicing writing.

    Oh, and all this without any pretense of running a "real" blog and actually trying to get readers. But I'll sure be writing about stuff that I think is interesting, so you should look around at some of the cool stuff.
