I've been getting quite a few messages from people who want in on my MSc blog but who missed the boat pledging to my project. It wouldn't be fair to my sponsors to grant access to other people for free, but I don't want to ask for money either, since I'm now fully funded.

I think it would be a shame for people who are interested in human evolution and cognition to miss out, so I've come up with a way around the problem:

Anyone who pledges to any science- or education-based crowdfunding project and forwards their confirmation email to can have access to my blog. 

If you know of anyone who wants to to subscribe but didn't get here in time, please let them know!

Hello! Wanted to let everyone know that the most recent donation of £2,850 actually represents offline donations from 21 generous people who don't use PayPal. 

I'm so close! Thank you again to everybody!

Hello again everybody.

I wanted to thank everybody again, especially in light of this new influx of pledges. I feel very humbled by the generosity.

There is one person who pledged and who has not received a thank-you message. I accidentally crossed out the message window because my browser had so many tabs up. However, after my brain had already made the decision, I noticed that I hadn't clicked "send" yet. I have no way of finding out who it was. If it was you, then THANK YOU!!! and sorry.

I really feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you all.

Hello amazing sponsory wonders,

I wanted to let you know that there is a problem with notifications to my account - namely that I'm not getting them - I haven't been for a couple of days. Hubbub are working to fix the problem but I wanted to apologise if you've made a donation and have not had a thank you - I'm trying to keep up but it's proving difficult.

Thank you, though, to everyone who has donated over the last few days (and before that)!

You are lovely! x

Hello sponsors,

The project is going really well so far - I'm feeling so inspired by people's generosity and everything that Hubbub (and my mum) are doing to help me and I'm feeling really optimistic!

I'm really excited about writing my masters blog. I'm thinking I'll probably link it to a private Facebook page, to make it easier for people to keep up to date.

Thank you so much to you all!
