Welcome, friend

Saturday, March 28th, 2009

I have avoided starting a blog for several years, even though friends suggested I write one.

You see, most blogs have a particular focus. I read blogs about politics, technology, teaching and learning, and faith. I didn’t see that my blog would have a singular focus like those that I read. Then I saw Jan Nunley’s blog. It was what I wanted to do. She writes about a variety of topics, and in a real sense gave me permission to start my blog.

I have a lot going on in my life and I’ll write about them. I’m program chair in Instructional Technology at Wayne State University, specializing in interactive technologies for learning. I’m deacon at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Royal Oak, Michigan, having moved to the Episcopal Church after most of a lifetime as a Lutheran. I am a liberal-to-progressive Democrat, news junkie, and bread baker, gardener, and foodie.

I’ll write about those things and other things as I think I have something to say.

Read those posts that you find interesting and ignore the rest. It’s OK.

Tell me what you think. I’ll listen, read, respond and expect you to push back.
