blogging is hard

Posted in General info on March 25, 2009 by Alex

It’s not so much that blogging is difficult, but I think I need to get into the mindset of posting on a regular basis. A routine is what I need. Sometimes I feel that life is a constant struggle against procrastination, and there is no better illustration of that than having a blog left bare for months at a time. Look at me now, I’m making a New Year’s resolution at the end of March! I will start posting stuff here on a regular basis! As to whether anybody reads it or not is another story. I think I would like it better if a lot of people read it but I somehow was oblivious to that fact.

For anyone who is reading this and would like to comment, feel free. I have the spam filter set on high so the comments have to be personally approved by me in order to make it through. The tone of the posts will be oriented toward my views on math, science, engineering, education, and incredibly bad movies. Sorry, but I have a weird fetish for horrible movies, particularly ones with terrible special effects. I will return soon with another post, a nice little parable about me learning to play the guitar.

One of these days I’ll create a proper ending to these posts, but for now I’ll just say – I’m gonna make like a tree and get outta here!

My first post

This is my official first post.

Do you like it?

I will use this blog to post interesting thoughts about math, physics, electrical engineering, and anything else that comes to mind.  I hope to get all of my students involved so they can have fun with all of these topics.  As is the case with all other blogs I have ever read, I reserve the right to go on a philosophical rant every once in a while, and perhaps even rant about a few other things.  Enjoy the blog, whoever might be reading this!
