Well, hello everyone.  I sat looking at the front page of The Sociology Blog, again considering what should be the next steps.

The good news is that I've never been more inclined to approach the idea of long form writing with this much energy.  It's funny though, because this Fall 2011 semester I have more on my plate than ever before.

However, there is also much more to offer in the form of commentary, ideas, and I continue to feel the need to share more.  I suppose my recent adoption of Google+ has affected this new found need; rather this new found need of a long time felt need.

I've struggled in recent years with content for this blog, not that there wasn't enough content, but I've also been keenly interested in teaching, the classroom environment, social networking and social media, areas of interest that perhaps have been out of the perview of "sociology".  Aside from the fact that those ideas may or may not be out of the perview of sociology, I've decided to use this particular blog space to present ideas not just related to sociology, but also education, technology, and related topics.

So my intent is to allow the blog to grow with me.  I think that will benefit the blog, me, and perhaps the online community.

As always, feel free to share your thoughts.
