Exciting News

Recently I have been invited to join the regular stable of writers who blog at Psychology Today.  I'm very happy to go forward and represent, to some extent, the paleolithic community with this wider exposure.  I'm also pleased by the intriguing work done by the other bloggers there.  Fortunately, I have complete editorial control over the content of the articles.  I will begin by updating and cross-posting some of my better entries over there, but I may end up putting wholly original material there also.

The blogging over there also pays by the page view.  Seeing as how I just bought a new thyroid textbook, please do me a favor and go have a look!

Welcome to Evolutionary Psychiatry

(Thanks so much to Dr. Kurt Harris for recommending me, and putting me on his blogroll, which is apparently how the editor at PT found my blog.  Didn't mention it at first as I didn't want to spoil his own announcement! However, it does make the opportunity doubly exciting, as the potential to reach the mainstream with PaNu's gift for turn of phrase is just amazing.)

  2. Congratulations! It's great to see the paleo approach slowly breaking into the mainstream, especially with better representation than the common "caveman lifestyle" feature articles that pop up every now and then.

    Kurt - I've got two kids to eventually send to college, so the sooner the better - clicky clicky!

  8. Welcome aboard. A couple of points that might help you eventually pay for the kids' college; always have a pithy title and catchy first line. If the editors use your pull quote on the rotating masthead on the main page, you will get lots more hits, as you will if your post is picked as one they feature on the front page. I also like to leave links to my personal blog for anyone who is interested.
    Enjoy!

  11. Thanks Steve and G!

    Shrink-wrapped - thanks for the tips! I'm hopeful my robust following over here will help out over there - and my buddy Kurt probably has 8-10X the page views I do, so maybe his readers will share the love. I do need to work on my pithy titles and catchphrases, though.
