Still learning how to work this thing.
Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it.
I still think I publish mainly for myself. It's a way of forcing
myself to write. I post trivia I find in my mail, things I need to
remember. I haven't been blogging that way lately, though. I guess
it's because the things I want to write about aren't passing through
my computer, aren't generated by some other person.
This is new for me. It takes some getting used to. Then again, it
isn't that new. My teaching reflections were also personal content.
People want to know what's going on in my life, or at least I think
so. ;) I _could_ let my messages disappear into spam-tangled
mailboxes, but I'd rather not. Besides, this way, people can catch up
with several days of reading guilt-free. E-mail... e-mail is push.
Blogging is pull.
