I haven't been on this blog in about a year, but Chris has inspired me to start blogging, again. I've been putting most of my generative discursive abilities into writing on the dissertation or I'd blog on myspace. But, since I've all put abandoned myspace and facebook doesn't seem the "appropriate" place for blogging, I've decided to come back here and start writing/updating again. I do like some of the little stories and tidbits that I've posted on myspace, so I think I'm going to post them again here from time-to-time for achival purposes if anything.
This blog was once private; however, I've decided to open it up since I'm pretty far ahead on the dissertation, and I don't think there's any intellectual property here that needs protecting. And, if anyone did try to pirate any of my ideas, I think they'd probably be in a world of hurt anyways. Suckers...
It's interesting to see how optimistic and over-zealous I was with the dissertation this time last year. I've been writing for a year now on it and my scope has narrowed down significantly, and my writing processes are much slower than I anticipated they would be. However, T is happy with what I've done so far and I'm feeling really optimistic that I can finish everything by August.
So, here I am. Back to blogging. Back in the cyber-universe of online publishing. For what it's worth.
