Searching for blog about self-experimentation
January 10, 2021 9:23 AM   Subscribe

My Google-fu is failing me. A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a fascinating blog about self-experimentation / personal science / N=1 interventions. I didn't bookmark the site, and now I can't find it.

I've checked the history on all my browsers, and it's not there.

The site I'm seeking is similar to "N Equals One: Where I am the only rat in the lab". But the site I saw was a less slick, without all the fancy photos. I think it was written by a woman, though I'm not 100% sure about that. And I don't remember if it was still being maintained. I only clicked on one or two entries, and then I got distracted by something else. Oh, and it's not Seth Roberts's blog (which is a site that comes up a lot in Google searches on N=1 experiments).

I think each entry in the blog was about some intervention that the author tried on herself, some data related to the intervention, and some discussion of the outcome.

I'm hoping that someone with better Google skills can find it.

Tim Ferriss seems to be among the most famous of the self-experimentation set, maybe it was his blog/podcast? (This is not an endorsement, he seems like just another self-help snake-oil salesman to me, though I admit I haven't analyzed his work deeply.)

If it's not N Equals One, is it this similarly named blog that was recently posted to the blue? n = 1: One gal's quest to optimise her life (only one post)

Quantified Self probably isn't the website you're looking for, but it is a search term that could help. Archive of projects.
