Looking back over this past semester, I realize that I've blogged here an average of once a month. That's not very good frequency, especially for a blog. I don't know why it's been so hard for me to write stuff here. I mean, I certainly have a lot I would like to say, but every time I come to blog something, I blank out.
I guess the thing is that a blog is supposed to be focused on my life, my thoughts, my words, and I can't see why anyone would be interested in what I have to say. Not that I have nothing of worth to say, but with so many other pressures and burdens and obligations, I'm not sure why anyone would want to spend time reading this. In other words, I am afraid that if I write something up here, no one will pay attention.
I've come to realize though that this is not the best way to approach the situation. This space has been given for me to write what I think, to journal my thoughts in a way that invites scrutiny, discussion, and even critique. Instead of shying away from this opportunity, I should embrace it.
I can't promise too many more updates before the end of the semester, but I will do my best. I hope that reading this and all the other blogs on this page has been helpful and illuminating.
