Accessing password-protected posts on this blog

Dear Everyone,

Earlier this year, I started a crowdfunding project with, in the hopes of raising the money I needed to do an MSc in Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at Oxford. To my delight and amazement, the project was a success, and I have just started my course. One of the rewards I offered donors, in exchange for £1 or more, was access to this blog, where I’ll be aiming to communicate what I learn while I’m here. Almost all the posts will be password-protected.

If you are a donor who has not received the password, please get in touch, as this is a mistake. Hopefully nobody has slipped through the net, but putting together the mailing list was hugely more complicated than I expected it to be.

Since the completion of my crowdfunding campaign, I’ve had a few messages from people who want in on the blog but who missed the boat and didn’t make a pledge. It wouldn’t be fair to my sponsors to grant access to other people for free, but I don’t want to ask for money either.

I think it would be a shame for people who are interested in human evolution and cognition to miss out, so:

If you want the password, simply make a pledge to any science/education-based crowdfunding project and forward the confirmation email to

    1. I add a password to the posts I want to keep private. In the draft edit window, I change it from “public” to “password protected”, and it asks me to put a password in. I do this separately for all posts.
