There’s nothing impressive about this blog yet, but then again, there was nothing impressive about the website I’d had in place for the last 7-8 years, which teased my non-existent readership with the ever-elusive promise that a redesigned site was “coming soon.” In the relative scheme of the universe, this was not a lie. In the more practical scheme of my own life, it didn’t turn out to be entirely true.
Regardless, I came in just under the wire for 2012 resolution keeping with a fresh install of WordPress, which I hope to use with an as-yet-undetermined frequency, to begin writing again more in 2013 and beyond. Having now been out of graduate school for over 5 years, I’ve been realizing that most of my productive efforts go toward my job… and that my job rarely calls for the sort of reflective or critical writing that academic life required of me. So, while I’m not going to flatter myself that anyone is eagerly awaiting yet another blog on the internet, I figure this at least gives me a space to commit ideas to public examination and discussion. And that can only be a good thing for me.
Should you decide to come back and participate from time to time, I hope it proves to be a good thing for you as well.
And in the meantime, if you’re looking for something I’ve written or presented before, you might be able to find it here.
Happy New Year, all.
