From Einstein’s Notebook – Notes For Lecture on Relativity


Everybody knows Einstein, but it’s rare that we get to experience his work directly from the source. These photos are quite possibly the notes of his 4-part lecture which he presented at The Prussian Academy of Sciences in 1915, but this is not confirmed. They could also relate to the lecture he gave at the University of Manchester in 1921 (Einstein’s First Lecture in Britain – The Guardian, 1921), but this is also not confirmed.

  1. Hello! I know this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    • Hi! Firstly, thank you for referring to my blog as well established, though I guess for myself I don’t feel as though it is yet. I suppose that contributes to making it well established.
      This blog started out strictly as a zen blog, and I would post a few little things everyday, and then I eventually put it down for a while (at least 7 to8 months). All that time I didn’t realize that I was getting constant hits everyday for the whole time, so traffic didn’t really die down, even though I wasn’t blogging. The volume wasn’t large, but it was still a daily thing. I just recently came back to the blog a few short months ago, and I’ve been working on revamping the identity, and turning it into something that can be considered “professional” to some extent. But the work load, I would say is relatively manageable. I do spend a lot of time each day researching, gathering together knowledge from personal experience and other sources to post at least twice daily, and to make the content something useful for the people that visit. For me it does take up the entire day just about, but I’m turning this thing into a competitive blog, so that’s my personal choice for that much work, I suppose.
      If you write in your journal daily, then that’s a good start. It would definitely give you a wealth of content that you could place on the blog, and you would have posts that you could spread out over time. What I’ve done is I’ve set a goal for myself for a base hit count of 50 views per day, and I’ve been meeting it so far. Next I’m going to bump it up to probably 70, and then 100 (although I’ve received 100+ hits a few days ago)
      So, the topic of your blog will be about your experiences and feelings. That’s good. Is there any type of niche subject matter that you’re looking to post about? I’m sure that you will get people to come to your blog, as long as it has content that people can relate to, and they feel as though it has value, then you should have no problem.
      Another thing is to try to post pictures and/or videos with as many posts as you can, and where it is appropriate. It’s important to remember that people have so many things to grab their attention online, and a good picture will increase the likely hood that people will want to click on a link to your blog and read what you have to say. And also a good title is the other part of that equation. Pretty much, just think about the things that make you click on links and read blog posts, and then apply that to your own blog.
      Are you on facebook? If you are, feel free to add me as a friend: We can keep in contact there if you like 🙂
      I hope that this helps you. If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a message ^_^
      I hope everything goes well with your blog
