Last week, Mindwise turned 1 and we are celebrating! In the past twelve months, we’ve shared 74 posts by almost 50 different authors (many of them students), and numerous events and news items. We’ve grown from just having a few dozen readers in the first month, to more than 1,100 readers every month and a total of almost 100,000 unique pageviews! Mindwise can now be followed on Facebook and Twitter, and we’re steadily working on adding audio interviews and other podcasts on our Soundcloud page.


Choose the best post, enter to win a book!

To mark this special first anniversary, we have selected our favourite posts from 2014 and now ask you, the readers, to decide which one wins the Best Mindwise Post for 2014 Award! Of course, we couldn’t leave you without some prizes too: Three lucky voters will win a book!

So, pick your favourite article from our selection below and leave your email address if you want to win some Mindwise goodies! Voting closes on March 29th (midnight NL time). We will announce the winning post during the 2015 Heymans Symposium.
