I’m probably the most reluctant blogger in the world. Though I like the idea and the process of putting ideas out on the net, I’m just not the most consistent. Add to it that this school year has been one wild ride and you have a formula for “blog abandonment”. So, I was considering moving … Continue reading Thinking of changing my blog
