It’s Valentine’s Day again, so it must be another anniversary for the Scientific Fundamentalist blog.
When I began blogging for Psychology Today on 14 February 2008, I was one of only four inaugural PT bloggers; it was then a very small operation. Now, three years later, there are four Schwartzs and four Cohens among more than 1,100 PT bloggers (but still only one Kanazawa and only one Chamorro-Premuzic). Unfortunately, all of my fellow inaugural PT bloggers – Peter D. Kramer, Dan Ariely, and Helen Fisher – have since stopped blogging for PT. Nearly 200 posts and 7 million hits later, I’m the only one still standing.
I’ve never quit anything in my life. I’m still in Boy Scouts. I have 9,000 badges. (And I steal jokes from Tina Fey.)
