In other news, I just realized that today marks exactly one (solar) year since I began this blog. It was certainly with a sense of fear and trepidation that I wrote my first post (with its predictable title), and I haven’t been as consistent as I had hoped to be, but it seems to have fulfilled at least some of its original goals. It has certainly been a prod on me to write more frequently, and I credit an increase in productivity in several areas to this effort. It gets credit for some decreases in productivity, as well, but I think my juggling is getting better.
For those of you who have been here regularly, thanks for the support and comments — both kind and unkind. I like to think that both types of feedback have made me better. (If not, please let me continue in my delusion. I’m not done with it yet.)
