It's a Micro World after all is a blog dedicated to discussing pretty much whatever I feel like. When I delve into scientific matters it will primarily be discussing microbiology (agricultural, bioenergy, and environmental focus). Otherwise, I'll probably ramble on about sports and life.

Well, this finished off my first week of blogging here at LabSpaces, and so I'll try to wrap things up in style. Ok, not really in style, but with a rather inane blog entry. Now, this might look like my Wednesday Micro Hits, but really, this is my Friday Wrap-Up. Try not to confuse the two.
1. I think everyone should go over and donate a few dollars to this Donor's Choose project. I know GR will be especially fond of this one. I tried to tweet @RebeccaSkloot in the hopes that her publisher could do something about it, but it probably got lost in all the noise of the intertubez ... it's not as if she has only 30 followers like I do.
2. I continued the first of my weekly rituals, that being the posting of my Wednesday Micro Hits. Yeah, it's not all about microbiology, but rather very small (get it, micro/small ... I kill myself) blurbs that I didn't feel like writing large blog entries on.
3. I did my first (of hopefully many) Research Blogging articles here. I think it's a first for LabSpaces, but someone else will have to verify/refute that. In the meantime, I'm going to take credit for it! I think it's a pretty good read. Not your usual Research Blogging material, but it's something I'm going to assume most of us can get behind.
4, I participated in my first "What if?", where I related my story of wanting to be a vulcanologist.
5. Lastly, I tried to impart some wisdom that I've garnered over the last couple of years on how to review manuscripts.
... and I suppose I should mention the most read entry on my site to date ...
6. My discussion on plagiarism in Chinese journals where I also sensationalize the death of English-language journals.
Thanks to everyone for welcoming me here, and I hope to continue blogging here for the foreseeable future. Hope everyone has a good Friday, and a great weekend. I know I will!
ETA: Brian burst my bubble. The first Research Blogging post went to Rift over at Psycasm. Boo!

Rift of Psycasm is a ResearchBlogger... He beat you by about a month :P I'm glad to have two of you here though. I like ResearchBlogging :)
My you've had a busy week, I'm tired just reading about everything you've done. I love the fact that you've written a list to sum up your week, I love lists, I even love other people's lists - I am basking in the accomplishment of your tasks, maybe I can forget about my giant to do list
FYI: I'm a researchblogger, too. I just don't have time to do it much :-P
Gerty, what are you saying about the rest of us then, eh? I feel like I've just been #k3rdn3d
