In September 2017, I wrote a blog post "How to Research the UFO Phenomenon and Stay Sane." I laid out my philosophy in eight points:
1. Have some guiding principles.
2. Tackle diverse research projects.
3. Read widely.
4. Don't separate research into UFOs, from research into the paranormal.
5. Take frequent breaks from research.
6. Reinvent oneself from time to time.
7. Publish your research findings.
8. Don't be afraid to respectfully disagree with other researchers.
I value those individuals who have contributed to this blog, by supplying leads to information; providing comments etc. I do also appreciate the opportunity to engage in peer discussion. However, it is time for me to take another break. So, as from 1 November 2019, I will not be publishing any new posts on this blog for the duration of this latest break.
The length of breaks has varied from three months to four years. After each previous break, I have returned refreshed, to the topic; with a clearer capacity to undertake research and again contribute to the debate.
I will catch up with you in due course. In the meantime please enjoy reading some of the other 1,051 posts on the blog.
