As I have mentioned before, this blog originated as a way of staying in touch with family and friends during our year in Spain between April 2006 and May 2007. Writing a blog led me to read other blogs and in many ways it has become the way I stay engaged with the world outside university. Writing a thesis can be an isolating experience and not being the kind to like isolation, this has been my way of ensuring that my road towards the PhD remains a positive one.
Thank you to all of you who come by, visit, and leave comments. This blog has allowed me to meet some truly amazing people. I’ll leave you with a TED talk on blogging by one of the founders of Movable Type, one of the first blogging platforms.
