Looking Ahead, Looking Back
Last year was a busy year here on The Edge. I switched from a part time job to a full time job. This is important since it interfered with my blogging. I teach at a community college and last semester I was developing a new class so after spending all day on the computer (doing research and preparing lectures) I didn't want to come home and spend more time on the computer. This semester I'm teaching another class I've never taught before so... I think that bodes poorly for the next semester here on the Edge of the Blogiverse.
Add that to my typical 1-2 year burn out period for each hobby and...
Still, one purpose for this blog was to improve my writing and photography skills. I don't think it's done much for my photography so I guess I need to keep it up and focus more on that aspect. Don't expect much during the winter/spring emester (when my garden is covered in snow anyway) but maybe during the summer.
I may also branch out into more biology. That's what I teach and there is always so much more cool biology out there than I have time to talk about during lecture. I could post that here.
In conclusion... Well, there is no conclusion. Just rambling. I'm not sure where this blog is going - forward or off into the dust.
In the meantime please go and encourage Mr Subjunctive at PATSP to keep up his blog. He's also in a burn out phase and I'd hate to see his blog fade away.
