#SHEA2018 has just started in Portland and since it’s SHEA Spring, it’s our blogiversary! Back in 2009, it all started with this post by Dan. We’ve been on quite a run – 1788 posts, numerous guest commentaries and a good share of controversy.
But you’ve probably noticed that we’ve been a little light on posts since around the end of 2016. This is for a variety of reasons, many of which you might guess – busy schedules, enrolling in degree programs, submitting grants etc. The biggest reason that I’ve rarely posted is that I deleted my twitter app. Since twitter is where I found many interesting ideas for posts, I’ve lacked some motivation.
But, 2018 is a new year – our 10th year – and with new bloggers and light at the end of many tunnels, expect big things. I’ll be off to Singapore for a good part of the year to learn about MDRO control there – I can imagine some “virtual postcards” from the Uncle Traveling Matt of the blog.
Finally, I saw the Tedeschi Trucks Band in Davenport last night. Amazing show. And Charlie Parr opened for them. Charlie is an amazing blues guitarist from Minnesota – he’s a character in the coolest sense and told great stories. I can’t get this song out of my head, so I thought I’d share it with you. Have a great time at SHEA – I can’t be there. Please, remember me and remember our blog.
