Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me to get here!

It’s really exhausting doing all this sci comm on the top of PhD-ing, and I don’t always have time to make new content. But I have a ton of old content I can draw on. And you can access it all on my blog https://thebumblingbiochemist.com. Here’s some of what you’ll find there.
In addition to easier-to-read-and-more-figure-having versions of the #365DaysOfScience posts like today’s https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/365-days-of-science/
and the option to search for ones you’re interested in, I have some extra features…
For example, glossary of de-jargonnize biochemistry jargon, which I’ve continued to update, and the words in the glossary are underlined in the posts & you can scroll over or click to learn more when the word comes up in context. https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/glossary-2/
I also have a page of links to posts on some fabulous female scientists. https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/women-in-science/some-phenomenal-female-scientists/
And I have a graphics page where I have some core graphics I’ve made (using Adobe Illustrator – I know you’re gonna ask!). All are free to use with attribution and some are downloadable from Wikipedia https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/graphics/
I’ve also been working to make pages with posts grouped by topic. For example, there’s an “experimental techniques” page where you can find links to posts on things like SDS-PAGE, PCR, western blots, etc. https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/techniques/
There’s also a page with links to posts on classic biochemistry experiments – we’re talking the Chase-Hershey blender experiments showing genetic info is held in nucleic acids, the NIrenberg experiments cracking the genetic code, and Sanger sequencing insulin (the first protein to be sequenced). https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/classic-biochemistry-experiments/
Or maybe you want some practical advice? There’s a page for that! https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/practical-advice-on-various-things/
There’s also one on protein purification https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/protein-purification/
one on mathy stuff (dimensional analysis, logarithms, standard deviation, etc.). https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/math-y-stuff/
And one on metabolism (making and breaking molecules): https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/metabolism-making-and-breaking-molecules/
There’s also a whole page for amino acids (protein letters) – you don’t have to wait until December’s #20DaysOfAminoAcids! https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/lets-talk-science/amino-acids/
I also wanted to let you all know that I’ve added an option to subscribe to get email notifications when I post new posts (people had asked for the option so I added it, I didn’t add it to get your personal info or anything!) https://thebumblingbiochemist.com/subscribe-for-emails-if-you-want-them/
I really hope this helps make it easier to access fun information on biochemistry! Because that’s why I do this. Not for fame or followers. But to pay it forward, let people see how awesome biochemistry is, and come to visualize & love the molecules all around and inside us all. more about me and my philosophy: http://bit.ly//pushelectronsnotppl
Happy learning everyone and thanks for all your support! Sometimes it gets really exhausting doing all this while earning a PhD but knowing I’m helping people makes it all soooooo worth it!
