Yes, I know I haven’t been around in a while. Life got really busy and the blog took a back seat. I am also trying to figure out what to do with it as far as focus.
In the meantime, I do want to mention that my friend over at Intellectual Christian Geek has a new blog, Intellectual Christian Academic. So far it’s an interesting read for those of us in academia. I disagree with a lot of what he says, but that’s the nice thing about it. We can disagree and still be friends. I don’t think there will be much political stuff on this blog, even though he is a political science professor. (I’m sort of hoping he starts an “Intellectual Christian Politics”.)
He tends to write a lot about the challenges facing universities. For example, he writes about how academic structure disincentivizes good teaching and why college costs so much. It is interesting reading and I think most of it is accessible to a broader audience (you don’t need a Ph.D. to understand what he’s talking about).
So, as I figure out what I’m doing with this blog, I encourage you to scrounge about to see what others are doing. Since Intellectual Christian Geek was kind enough to plug me when I first got started, I’m returning the favor and giving him some props on his new endeavor.
