Steno bredanesis - An Introduction

I thought of using a video such as Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot, or the intro to Blue Planet as something to introduce this blog, or perhaps one of my speeches that I had recorded last summer during my public speaking class. No, instead, I'm just going to write a little bit about myself and what this blog will be about.

I suppose I should explain the name first. The title of this blog is named after the species, Steno bredanensis, or more commonly known as the rough-toothed dolphin. It is one of my favorite species of the Cetacea order. If you haven't guessed, this blog is going to be focused a lot on science and mostly marine biology. I will delve into other subjects such as paleontology, robotics and astronomy, but for the main topic, it will be marine biology with a focus on cetaceans. This is a personal blog, and the main purpose for it is to get me focused on my dream of becoming a marine biologist and dolphin trainer.

Since I'm going to be the only one posting here, I'll try starting out slow (unlike the other blog I created, PK Gaming, which has been growing rapidly). I'll only be posting something here once a week. (I may be posting more often than that now) I have quite a few subjects and links to articles that I would like to write about that will hopefully get me going.

So, again, a brief overview of what this blog is all about. It's a personal blog that is about science with a focus on marine biology, but not afraid to stray off the main topic. Hm... seems wordy. I don't want to push much formality into this blog, but I'll do my best to make it seem professional. (Though... I guess I don't have to if it's a personal blog, huh?)

Anyway, I digress... I just hope that any readers that might come across this blog will find it interesting.
