Blogging In July

Where have I been? I am afraid this blog has been set aside for almost a month now, for various reasons. But I have great plans for the month of July. I have even signed up to participate in National Blog Posting Month or Nablopomo, a lighthearted challenge to publish a new blog post every day for the month of July. The theme for this month’s challenge is swim, so let’s dive right in.

Highlights of things to come:

  • New Ants of the Week
  • Book reviews
  • Wordless Wednesdays (photographs)
  • Current research clips
  • Tributes to Entomologists
  • Answers to reader questions
  • And much more!

July is a perfect month to be excited about ants here in the Southwest, because we have summer rains called monsoons that trigger a lot of swarms. (Hopefully we won’t be doing any real swimming because of the rains.) With things are heating up in the ant world, I plan to capture some of the events on film. I will also be asking for help identifying ants from the mountains of Colorado, where we recently visited. We’re brimming with “ant”icipation for the next 31 days!

As always, if you have any ideas, suggestions or questions about ants, I would love to hear about them.

  1. A blog. About ants. This is really, really cool. I have to admit that I don’t love ants. Let me rephrase that…I love the IDEA of ants. But I don’t love them when they’re in my house. Still…I’m utterly and completely intrigued by the fact that this is a blog about ants. I’m also fascinated by the fact that you’re an entomologist. Can’t wait to learn more!
