A new blog standing on it's own two legs

I have been contemplating for a long time whether I should create a new blog. I used to have a blog as a PhD student but wasn't posting regularly and lost interest in it for long periods of time. Especially during the last months of frantic write-up when whatever spare energy dedicated to the Internet went to the wonderful forum at www.phinished.org. However, one year has passed since the PhD defense. I have gotten a job. I am doing full-time research and am in my first academic teaching position this semester. The academic-to-be has grown up and is looking for company. Over the past year I have lurking on several academic blogs and wanted to join in with my views on life in the ivory tower and beyond, but thought I should have a proper blog of my own before doing so. This is the beginning. Hope I can keep it up this time around and create a blog with a voice I identify with. See you in the blogosphere.
