Enter Sweet Tea Science
I'd been feeling this way about Practical Ecologist for a few months. Feeling like blogging was another thing added to my Stress List, not a fun side project. I was chatting with my best partner in crime, when it struck me, we should write a blog together. See, Meridith had her own personal blog, which was also constantly in some state of neglect. Meridith had a wonderful talent for fun and funny writing, often about science. Did I mention that we were roommates in college, took almost all the same biology courses together at Western, attended the ELME program together in 2007, and took the Amazing Besties National Park Roadtrip together in 2012. Plus, we're adorable. Sweet Tea Science was born.

Some Potential Questions
Where can I find you on the internet? You can find my musings about science, ecology, sustainability, and general science outreach shenanigans at Sweet Tea Science! We are currently just on Tumblr, but we will be transitioning to more long-form blogs come summer time. Feel free to follow us on Instagram and Twitter! I will be making a professional website to house news about my research and such related academic nonsense. That is still in the works, but once it is done I will link to it from my Sweet Tea Science "About Me" page.
Where will I be able to access Practical Ecologist content? I don't know if blogger ever really deletes anything, but just in case, all this content (and all the content from Meridith's old blog) has been migrated over to the long-form Sweet Tea Science blog that we are working on as we speak.
Will you still be writing about green living or doing any lifestyle posts? Our current vision for Sweet Tea Science does involve some lifestyle posts about living sustainable and simple. Unlike this blog, that won't be the focus in the future.
Until Next Time
