Toward the end of my undergraduate career I considered starting a blog, but I wasn’t sure. Then when I started graduate school I knew for sure I wanted to start blogging. As a graduate student I unofficially started blogging (generating ideas and topics) and discovered my first higher education blog, The Thesis Whisperer.

Mademoiselle Spotlight: The Thesis Whisperer/Dr. Inger Mewburn:
Before officially starting Mademoiselle Scientist I reached out to The Thesis Whisperer and she emailed me back. She gave me some great feedback and tips to get started with my blog. The advice I remember the most is to just start blogging. There are not many blogs in the academic, science, women in STEM, and early research career category so there is a huge need. So I started blogging and here I am two years into blogging. I have a lot to learn and many things to share in my journey as a woman in science.
Looking back I’m glad I took The Thesis Whisperer’s advice because I really enjoy reading her blog. I highly recommend it! It’s a great resource for graduate students and professionals. I can’t believe I didn’t know about The Thesis Whisperer earlier in my academic career. It would have been handy. On the bright side I’m glad I found it!
