I’ve been planning to start a blog for the new year (so cliche, I know!); it’s a little over halfway through January, so that’s not too bad.
So…metaphorically scattered? The name came from a discussion with a friend in which I was describing the state of my brain. I feel like I’m constantly performing a juggling act in my brain. I’m a bioinformatics scientist (I tele-commute for a biotech company in South San Francisco), mother to my five-year old daughter Eleanor, a wife to my husband Andy, a sort-of runner, a knitter, and probably more things I’m forgetting. Sometimes I feel like there are pieces of me scattered everywhere! And we won’t even get started on my house, which is full of things that are actually scattered.
I previously had a blog at blogspot, but I’ve been pretty bad about updating. Blogspot was lacking some of the features I wanted, so I decided to start over at WordPress. Taking inspiration from my friends Bernice (who runs Stitches & Press) and Sarah (who runs Multifacted Mama), as well as Statshots at the Onion, my plan is to provide insight into my life with statistics and fun graphs. What can I say? I love numbers and pretty visualizations. Current projects include: my sources of caffeine for a week or month, comparing who drinks more caffeine, my progress using yarn I already own,
Bear with me as I learn the ropes here. If you have any ideas for content, I’d love to hear them. What do you track on a daily basis?
