No doubt many of you are aware of the Space Wolves blog run by Adam Smith. If you aren't then you can find it on my blog roll down the right hand side ---->> hint hint nudge nudge. Adam has made a massively popular and extremely excellent blog which centres solely on the wild kin of Fenris with battle reports, tactica, conversion guides and more. He recently put out a call for other contributors to help him keep up the good work, and after a few exchanged emails I have been added as a writer to his blog roll! I plan mainly to contribute tactica articles written from the enemies perspective. I.e. I will describe counter tactics for my armies when facing Thunderwolf cavalry for example and then show how I space wolf player could counter this, either through deployment, duality, redundancy or tactics.
This is very exciting for me. As I progress through my current career path as a bio-medical researcher, I become more and more aware of the ceiling to the progression you can make. This comes in the form of limited grant money, limited fellowships, limited lectureships and basically limited everything! This makes competition for all these jobs extremely fierce, and whilst I have a pretty damn good CV, so do many others. Incidentally if anyone is curious I can post a link to some of my academic publications should you want to see what I do?
With this in mind I have decided to focus quite a bit more effort on writing for this blog and writing for other blogs as much as I can. I feel this would be a good string to my bow should I wish to go for any editorial jobs within science or even if I wanted to take a completely different route all together. I hope you'll jump over to Adam's blog and see all the great things he's got to offer, and if you have any general advice for increasing my reach, getting on to other blogs, or even would be happy for me to write on your blog please do chime in and let me know. All advice is taken kindly with great thanks :).
That's all for now folks!
