In other news…

In case you haven’t already heard the news, there’s a new bug blog in town, and it’s coming to you from the top tiers of the Canadian entomology scene.
That’s right, the Entomological Society of Canada officially launched the ESC Blog earlier today!
For the past couple of months (because clearly we don’t already spend enough time on the internet *eye roll*), Morgan Jackson (of Biodiversity in Focus fame) and I have been working behind the scenes as blog administrators, reaching out to collaborators and recruiting authors. We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response to this new venture and are really looking forward to helping give Canadian entomologists of all ilks – students, academics, researchers, amateurs, naturalists – a stronger online presence, and allowing them to showcase their interests and accomplishments. This is a great opportunity for entomophiles to get involved and share their passion with a broader audience.
You all know that blogs take some time to build momentum and readership – but you can help give us a head start by visiting the inaugural post, signing up to the RSS feed, and maybe sharing the news on Twitter, Facebook or Google+!
Also, if you think you’d like to contribute a story, a research summary, or even photographs to the blog, we want to hear from you! Drop us a line at EntSocCanada@gmail.com
