It is our great pleasure to welcome to the Blog Herald another bi-weekly columnist: Aileen Thompson. Aileen will be our specialist “science blogger” bringing us all the latest news and analysis from the world of scientific blogging.
Aileen has more than a quarter century of experience in print media, having made the transitions from lead type to computer photo-typesetting to “user friendly” when Apple took over the industry in the early 1980s. She has been a graphic artist and reporter, editor and writer for newspapers, newsletters, magazines and special events periodicals in several states.
Her interest in internet news media and blogs began as these media were just emerging, bringing with it a knowledge of history, current events and the entertainment world. Aileen is now a happy grandmother who lives in a rustic cabin in the mountains and writes adult learning curriculum, short stories, magazine articles and biographical sketches of the many interesting people she has known. These include military commanders, diplomats, politicians, spies, entertainers, scientists and regular people with wonderful love and life stories to tell.
Aileen has written two novels and is currently working on a historical biography collection that she hopes will actually be published before she dies.
Welcome aboard Aileen! The Blog Herald is honored to have you with us.
