I am loving the blogginz aspect of my life. Truly. I have connected with a crew of wonderful people in the blogosphere, and I look forward to fostering those acquaintances and friendships at whatever level they may take.
On the other hand, however, blogging has introduced me to a few other new media initiatives, and I now find myself at odds trying to juggle everything. I think there is an ABC After-(adult-education)-School Movie in the making: I was a middle-aged Facebook junkie, or something like that. Honestly, how do folks do it?
One thing that this has done, however, is reconnect me with all kinds of people...some going way back. Included are schoolmates, friends, family, teachers, colleagues, etc. That can only be a good thing.
There is another particularly happy by-product of this foray into new media. It has served as a much-needed catalyst for me to resume networking in my field. Because settling in Sydney as a migrant from a country that, let's face it, isn't all that popular right now has occupied so much of my attention, I have put a few projects on the back burner.
In addition, various events over the past few weeks have caused me to realize that I am also sitting in neutral in other ways. There have been upheavals, both at home and in friendships. As a consequence, I realize that certain things need to change, or at least to evolve. I am, in a way, reinvigorated.
No doubt there will be future posts about upcoming endeavors. At any rate, I shall certainly continue with my blog, but the posts may (or may not) be reduced to as few as two or three a week. I hope not, but I suppose we shall see!
