Jonathan is a 23-year-old systems engineer from Venezuela, with interests in physics, astronomy, and aerospace engineering. Jonathan’s obsession, he readily admits, is with the cosmos. His thousands of posts about space, astronomy, astrophysics, and space exploration (and particle physics, quantum mechanics, and cosmology) seem to prove his point. To help aid in the navigation of all this material, he built a special page on his blog which breaks down posts by galaxies, nebulas, black holes, exoplanets, telescopes, every planet in our solar system, the Kuiper belt, and even more. (He might also post something Star Wars related from time to time, too.)

There’s an interesting genre of blog that is more about the community than the author.
The author starts posting about a topic they care about, the readers start contributing, and before you know it, the author has become a curator.
Tumblr has always been uniquely suited for this type of blog. In fact, 6 of them have gone from Tumblr blog to book deal in the last year.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, photosets are the future of books. Enjoy!
