Kikie’s Biotech Hub
November 15, 2019
First, a big thank you for always stopping by and reading my stuff!
I’m calling you friend because I appreciate you for taking time out to read my imperfect writing. I’m also writing this post as a letter and it would be rude if you do not respond to me (expecting a response in the comments 😉).
It’s been a little over a year since I finally bought my domain name and set up this blog (even though it took some more months before I decided to publish my first post). I honestly didn’t know what to expect after I started up the blog: I didn’t think people would be interested in reading it neither did I think that it was fancy or that it would spark nice conversations with people, lol.
Setting up this space was a little hectic, I had a little fight with the first graphic designer I tried to work with when I was creating my logo (still don’t know why I really wanted a logo anyway). The guy just wasn’t getting it and was then trying to force me to like something he made😐. This experience made me want to do everything else myself; from buying the domain, to setting up the blog and everything else (thanks YouTube and twinsmommy.com).
I still get really nervous when designers look at my blog. I know that they always find some fault, but at this moment, as far as my readers are learning something, I’m good.
Now, what the point of this story is, I’m not exactly sure. Maybe I wanted to say that MyBiotechHub isn’t where I want it to be yet, but I’ll get there soon(ish).
If anyone was wondering, “Where have you been Kikie??”
Well, I’ve been working on two very interesting science projects at the lab. But as interesting projects can also be stressful ones, I started to burnout. I decided to take some time off to rest after which I’ll be back in the lab doing more fun stuff!
A hobby I’ve picked up is watching more science-related shows online- I took a break from podcasts for now – so if you don’t mind, can you suggest some interesting science shows that I could learn from? NO SCI-FI PLEASE!!
I also took out some time to “work on my writing” although I don’t know how much I’ve done with that, lol.
Has anyone else tried to do something better about their writing? What did you do? What worked for you? Please let me know in the comments.
Lots of love,
Edidiong “Kikie” Essien
