Last year, blogging took a back burner to other priorities in my life. I was working at multiple jobs for most of the year, I was PhD student, and I was pregnant. I am no longer pregnant, and I’ve stopped working outside the home, but blogging will still be on the back burner. The little guy pictured above is priority #1 and will be for the foreseeable future. I managed to defend my dissertation prospectus the week before he was born, and am still plugging away at collecting and analyzing my data, but I have to admit that educational technology isn’t as relevant in my life as it was even a few months ago. My son is nearly seven weeks old. He’s learning some important things right now, like how to hold up his head, smile, and use his hands. The world of bits and bytes has very little to offer him right now, and I’m OK with that.
