It's Our Birthday

Well, almost. Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of C&ENtral Science's launch. It's been a fun and thought-provoking experiment. One that makes me, unlike many of you grad students, glad to know there is no end in sight. birthday.jpg A few highlights from the past year: Our most popular post by far was on Conan O'Brien's boron blunder rant. Apparently, you all like to talk about lead in drinking water, responding to creationism, and whether or not orgo is worthwhile, as those posts generated the most chatter on C&ENtral Science. The most popular search term that brought people to our blog was "terracotta army." Lisa Jarvis wins the "Most Searched For Writer" award. And the oddest search term? "cute Pakistani" Finally, one of my favorite posts was Paul Bracher's contribution, "Proper Usage Of PTNs." Thanks to those of you who keep coming back and to those who comment on or share our posts. And if there's something we're not doing quite right or something else we're not doing at all that you'd like to see, please leave a comment here or feel free to shoot me an email (r_pepling at acs dot org). Now go out and enjoy a cupcake/cookie/other sweet treat of your choice in our honor. And if you want to send us a cake, we're cool with that, too. Photo: Shutterstock

  1. Happy Birthday!
    I love the blog, found out about it maybe 6-7 months ago. I’d like to see more postings though, more per day maybe…

  2. Thanks, Lizzie! Glad you’re enjoying the site.
