Today, the Scientific American blog network turns one. Happy birthday! To celebrate, we've decided to turn the tables a bit on you, our readers, by taking a page from Ed Yong: for the last four years, Ed has asked his readers to tell him a bit about themselves and why they are reading his blog. Today, we'd like to do the same.

So, without further ado:

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.

4) Is there anything that you would like to see on Literally Psyched? Any other thoughts you might have?

I'm excited to see your comments! It's very easy to register if you haven't already done so--you don't even have to use your real name. Just click on "register" under the "Post a Comment" section, and you're good to go.
