I’ve moved! This is an Archive

In October 2013, I moved to WIRED as a science writer:

Thanks so much everyone for all your support over the years.

In order to save money, I’m going to let my “No Ads” subscription and some custom design tweaks lapse here at the Bug Blog, so things will look a little different.


ZOMG Amazing News: I’m Moving

Metamorphosis is coming.  I was invited to blog over at Wired Science. There is a HUGE amount of blogging talent out there, and they chose … me.  This is evidence that there is a real readership for news and comment writing ranting about insects, agriculture, and nature. Exciting!

I won’t be moving anytime soon; probably not until late August. I’ll keep all of you posted.

I would really love to hear from all my readers HERE, in this survey.
What do you want me to write about? What burning insect questions would you like to see answered?
(Please note the “Bug Girl Will Not Diagnose You guidelines; if you really have a “burning issue” you may want to see a doctor for some ointment.)

I started out as a pretty rough writer, and over the years you’ve let me learn in public how to do this bloggy thing. I’m still learning, and I still have a long way to go. The vast majority of people I’ve met online are fabulous, and it makes me so happy that you are part of my virtual community. Group Hug!

Below the fold are more personal thoughts about this move with animated gifs and cursing, for those who are curious.
