…my ten word summary is as informative as a Science or Nature paper.
So Byte Size Biology tagged me with the “Blog of Substance” meme, originally developed by Bora. I usually don’t participate in internet meme-ey things because I’m just too persnicketty to write about what other people want me to. I really don’t like the concept of “meme” either. But this I can get behind:
Sum up your blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words.
Unfortunately, this blog’s raison d’être is nineteen words long:
Because it’s marginally more productive than firing Nerf projectiles at my teevee machine when it makes me angry.
I think we can cut this down:
It’s more productive than firing Nerf projectiles at my TV when it angers me.
Still too long… How about:

Glamour magz, here we come!
The other thing I’m supposed to do is tag ten people, so here we go:
1) Confessions of a Science Librarian
2) Christina’s LIS Rant
3) The Mahablog
4) Lance Mannion (it would be a crime, though, to limit him to only ten words)
6) The Inverse Square Blog
7) Gene Expression
9) The Pump Handle
10) The Thoughtful Animal
