Today marks the first anniversary of the Scientific American blog network! We're all very excited by the response we've seen in the last year.

Me and my colleagues want to hear today from you, our readers, following Ed Yong's lead. Why don't you introduce yourselves in the comments section?

1) Tell me about you. Who are you? Do you have a background in science? If so, what draws you here as opposed to meatier, more academic fare? And if not, what brought you here and why have you stayed? Let loose with those comments.

2) Tell someone else about this blog and in particular, try and choose someone who's not a scientist but who you think might be interested in the type of stuff found in this blog. Ever had family members or groups of friends who've been giving you strange, pitying looks when you try to wax scientific on them? Send 'em here and let's see what they say.

3) I'm interested in whether you found us, or regularly follow us, through Twitter, Facebook and-or other beyond-RSS mechanisms that you may use to corral your information stream.
