As the science blog network closes, Suzi Gage reflects on her time writing for the Guardian
On February 14th, 2013 I published my first post as a Guardian science network blogger. And now, over 5 years and 112 posts later, this is my last blog here as the Guardian is closing the blog network at the end of August. I’m very excited to be continuing blogging for the newly formed Cosmic Shambles network from early September, but I want to use this post to look back on my time as a Guardian science blogger, and pick out some of my favourite posts.
A lot has changed for me during this time – when I posted that first blog back in 2013 I was a PhD student at the University of Bristol. I’m now a lecturer up at the University of Liverpool, I’ve successfully obtained grants to carry out research, and I’m about to start supervising a PhD student of my own. So grown up. I even have a cat now!
