A Renewed Resolution: Post-a-Week 2011

Not unlike almost everyone in the blogging community–or at least everyone I’ve come across–one of my resolutions for 2011 has been to Blog more frequently and prolificly on topics other than cataloguing my dissertation word count, bad bus driver jokes, and what I ate for lunch. While I realized I’ve been doing considerably better at updating this blog in 2011 than I did in 2010, my presence in the blogosphere still leaves much to be desired. As much as I enjoy–or at least take pride in–academic and scholarly writing, sometimes it is, to be frank, an awful drag. I likewise realized that much of my animosity toward my dissertation has largely to do with the fact that I’ve allowed it to consume my enthusiasm for writing like the blood-sucking vampire it is. I’ve discovered recently that this blog offers me a space for channeling my creative energy; when I felt like there was no place into which I could direct it, I just let it seep through the cracks in my brain. Since I vowed at the beginning of the semester to try to manage my stress levels with blogging once a week, I thought I might as well join the host of other bloggers here at WordPress participating in this challenge.

So here’s to my renewed endeavor to make 2011 the year of the blog…or at least, the year that I don’t completely cross over into insanity.
