Editorial: Reorientando las disciplinas

Publicado por Maverick Panditas

Reorientando las disciplinas

No sé qué será, pero curiosamente ahora que estoy probando la publicación cada vez más seguida de títulos sobre biodiversidad y ecología, encuentro mayor respuesta agradecida entre aquellos que descargan los libros.
¿Significará eso que aquellas personas inclinadas hacia la biología tienen implícitamente más desarrollado ese gesto?
No lo sé, pero como quiera que sea, por el momento y para felicidad de algunos y posiblemente molestia de otros (aunque no habría un motivo justificado) voy a comenzar a publicar más libros sobre aquellos temas, ya que al parecer tiene una mayor acogida y son más necesitados que los de veterinaria pura. Quizá aquellas personas que sigan de cerca las cosas que cuelgo acá se hayan dado cuenta de que de manera un poco tímida de vez en cuando publicaba libros sobre insectos y especies que poco tienen que ver con la veterinaria. Pero desde que se fue incrementando la respuesta de la gentita "biológica" comencé a aumentar los títulos sobre esa materia.
En parte, ha sido por eso que quité de mi logo hace ya algún tiempo lo de "Libros de Veterinaria" para abarcar un campo más nuevo.
Gracias a todos los biólogos sean profesionales o aficionados e incluso aquellos veterinarios que se inclinan por aquella rama del conocimiento.
En definitiva, los comentarios sí que son una medida importante de la preferencia de los usuarios. No es como muchos puedan pensar un asunto egomaníaco. Es simplemente una forma de verificar la preferencia de los usuarios del blog por determinado tipo de publicaciones, una especie de monitor… Más comentan, más gusta, ergo, más se publica.

Hasta la vista y gracias por orientarme un poco más acerca de sus preferencias.

Un saludo a todos.
