I started this blog, Telliamed Revisited, back in August of 2013, after attending a conference at which a colleague emphasized the value of social media in science.
I recall being questioned on Twitter by someone who expressed skepticism whether my blog would last or quickly be dropped. (Hey, I had already been running the LTEE for a quarter of a century at that point, so you’d think I’d get a little slack.) Anyhow, I said I didn’t really know, and that this blog was a personal experiment in communication. In any case, I’ve now kept it up for six years, but with only occasional posts … about 100 in total so far.
If you want to follow a regular blog that is focused on science and related issues, I highly recommend Dynamic Ecology. Jeremy Fox, Meg Duffy, and Brian McGill discuss interesting issues multiple times almost every week. Impressive!
Anyhow, reflecting on my blog experiment as we head into a new decade, I was interested to see which of my posts had been viewed most often. Here are the top 10:
- A Blast from the Past
- On the Evolution of Citrate Use
- Does Behe’s “First Rule” Really Show that Evolutionary Biology Has a Big Problem?
- Resources for People Interested in Learning about Evolution
- Luria and Delbrück, 1943, Genetics
- An Alternative to Schekman’s Boycott of Luxury Journals
- Fifty-Thousand Squared
- Thirty years is enough
- Zachary Blount on “Ham on Nye” Debate, Follow-up #3
- The Ten Commandments of Statistical Inference
Here are five more that are among my own favorites, but which didn’t make the top 10:
- On Time and Space
- When We’re Sixty Four (Thousand)
- Questions from Jeremy Fox about the LTEE, part 1
- Favorite Examples of Evolution

Last but not least, Happy New Year—and New Decade—to one and all!
