This blog represents a few specific efforts for me. First, it is my effort to go public with my reading. I read a lot for work and school, and I want to be able to share that reading with my colleagues. I hope my notes become more useful in a public forum than they are now, hiding out in my personal Dropbox files. Also, I aspire to use the blog to help me organize my thoughts. Because I read so much, write so little, and am not in possession of the most remarkable memory, I often forget where I’ve read something. I think that a journal of sorts that allows me to categorize my reading will help me to organize my thoughts. ¬†Finally, I am hoping that a blog will push me to balance the scale of consumption vs. production. I am a major consumer of information – from books and journals to news and social media – but I rarely comment or reflect on what I read. As a teacher of writing, I know that this is an important part of the digestion process, but I don’t often follow my own advice. I hope that this blog will help me contribute to the conversation in my field rather than just consume it. Thanks for visiting!
