Long Time Lurker, First Time Blogger

I’ve been reading and commenting on blogs for over ten years now. My colleague Jonathan Rees convinced me to start this blog as a way to not rely on our school’s IT system for all of our online teaching needs.

Okay.

And I’d been thinking about starting a blog for a long time, but I probably don’t have enough to say, and isn’t blogging kind of dying? I do know that many of the blogs in my favorites lists have died.┬áIt’s just like me to start blogging as it becomes less trendy (or is it? It could be that blogging isn’t dying at all; I have no real evidence of blogging’s death, and evidence is┬áimportant despite the lack of it in most online communication).

I don’t know what I’ll write about, but it will most likely be a mixture of ed stuff, memes (I’m late to that trend, too), and pop culture miscellany.

(This is really weird since I don’t have any readers yet.)
