Our First Birthday

by Devanshu Mehta

Last June, “I started this blog”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2005/06/06/welcome-to-science-addiction/ to talk about the things I was interested in: technology, science, some politics (mainly concerning technology and science). Maybe it is a sign of the times, but the focus has been fine-tuned towards “civil liberties”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2006/04/25/outrage/, “privacy”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2006/04/25/outrage/, “open standards”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2006/05/12/how-internet-explorer-stifles-microsoft/ and “new energy”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2006/06/04/research-corn-fiber-to-ethanol-using-mold/ while still introducing the occasional “geek project”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2005/08/06/linux-on-the-xbox-reasoning-part-i/ or “humorous”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/categories/humor/ outburst.

“Two”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2006/03/28/review-googles-gmail-for-your-domain/ “Slashdots”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2005/12/18/seasons-givings/ and a “Digg”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/2006/05/12/how-internet-explorer-stifles-microsoft/ later, the blog is older and wiser. I am learning to focus on fewer things in more detail as I try to build a repeat readership. So far, a vast majority of the readership surfs in and out through links found on Digg, Slashdot, other blogs and mainly, search.

So thanks to all those who have surfed in; even more thanks to those who stick around. Add “SA to your RSS reader”:http://www.scienceaddiction.com/feed/ and come back often.
