I write ‘Creatology’ for the Scientific American blog network. It’s a group blog threaded with the theme of creative ways of doing journalism/science and creativity.
I also occasionally blog for the Guardian’s environment blogs, including a post on ‘cycle-in cinemas’, a post following the protests of environmental activists Climate Rush as they stormed media offices, and a post on the unsustainability of financial ‘short-term-ism’. I have blogged for the Guardian’s Comment is Free, including a post on why Flibanserin is not women’s answer to Viagra.
For my MA in science journalism, I produced a website called ‘Women’s mag science’ all about women and science, and also how science is misrepresented in some women’s magazines.
Around the same time I wrote a blog called ‘Open Minds and Parachutes’ containing my thoughts on science journalism, environment journalism, and activism.
I have liveblogged a The Times ‘Eureka’ event, done multimedia posts for Frontline Club, and I liveblog/aggregate on Storify. My best result so far was over 2,000 views for a Storify on the London Slutwalks.
I tweet at @ChristineOttery, and I am also pretty keen on sharing information on Facebook (although I prefer to use LinkedIn for professional contacts). My Klout score is around 52. Apparently I am a ‘specialist’ with influence in ‘science and technology’, ‘environment’ and ‘journalism’.
Also: I created an interactive Dipity timeline of environmental law; I am fond of using Audioboo for short interviews; I can use Prezi as a storytelling tool; and I’m also a bit addicted to Pinterest, as I explain here on Scientific American.
