Detailed guides to painful problems, treatments & more

Blog hibernation

 •  • by Paul Ingraham
Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post. The blog is the “director’s commentary” on the core content of PainScience.com: a library of major articles and books about common painful problems and popular treatments. See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

I am putting this blog and the PainScience Facebook page into hibernation for several months at least, to free up a bunch of time for writing and research as I focus more on creating new featured articles and improving the existing ones. I will continue to Tweet from @PainSci, and fresh content updates will appear constantly on the What’s New? page.

This blog has been limping along for several years in this perpetually half-arsed way, substantive enough that I am not embarrassed by it, but still much less of a production than I originally imagined (many posts every week, with lots of smaller ones and the occasional bigger one). It has been so overshadowed by the obvious popularity the Facebook page that I wonder if there’s any point in duplicating posts in both places. If there sare people out there who value this format — the posts on the site, and the RSS feed particularly — now is a great time to let me know with a quick email or tweet. If I see enough enthusiasm for it, I will revive it! If not … maybe I will only revive the Facebook page.
