Why do I need a website when I have a blog, facebook, linkedin, twitter and run a website for a living? Well, if you're not on any of the above then it it might be hard to find me online – I often get society talk requests coming in through an old diverted UCL account, or via my connection to the SPA. As someone who likes to give talks at public events I felt it was good to have an 'official' looking page out there advertising the talks that I'm able to provide for different events. I've also told journalism students and scientists alike during "science in the media" type lectures that it's a good idea to have a homepage so that you can be easily contacted for quotes, so, time to practice what I preach!
I've noticed a lot of other media folk have websites showcasing their video or written work too (I got some of my inspiration from Colin Stuart and Lewis Dartnell's websites) and I think it's a more visually appealing way of displaying ones CV, and visuals are important in science communication! I also like having a central hub where I can now share some of the projects I've been working on recently with a potentially new audience.
Thanks in advance if you do check it out!
