About blogging

“We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.”
(C. Day Lewis)

I started a personal blog about ideas in theoretical and applied statistics. Even if it is not my native language, it will be in English. I want to improve my scientific writing yet if it is learning the hard way. Also, it could help you to understand some ideas and theories as I did.

If you have some suggestions or want to discuss about any particular topic, please let me know it in the comment box or send me an email at .  I’ll be glad if you point out my grammar mistakes or typos 😉 .


  1. Dear Mr Chacon

    My name is Katja Prevodnik and I am a PhD Student of Social Sciences Methodology at the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia).

    Based on your blog activities, I address you as one of most active experts in the field of presenting statistics to various target groups. In my PhD project, I am dealing with perceptions of simple statistical measures. As we cannot meet in person to conduct a face-to-face interview, I have prepared a very “open” online questionnaire on issues I am interested in. This short questionnaire is an important part of my research project. The results will be used to better develop and improve frameworks for analysis and interpretation of certain data to avoid misleading or incorrect conclusions. I believe that the cooperation of experts is crucial to give trustworthy and valid conclusions.

    The core questionnaire will only take about 10 minutes. Your answers will be handled with extreme confidentiality and the results will only serve for the scientific purposes. As one of the respondents of my research, you will also be notified on the results of the project (in case you wish to be, please send me an e-mail with the subject FEEDBACK).

    You can access the questionnaire at the link http://www.1ka.si/BLOGGER (just click on the link or type this into the web browser).

    If any additional information regarding your engagement is needed, please, do not hesitate to contact me directly (katja.prevodnik@fdv.uni-lj.si) or leave comments at the end of the online questionnaire (for anonymity purposes).

    Please, feel free to delete this comment after reading it.
