New Academic Blog

The purpose of this blog is two-fold. The first aim of the blog is to exist as a stage upon which I may dress up and demonstrate in various states of readiness my work. This might include interesting material found relating to current projects. Alternatively, the blog may merely function to share little tidbits and interesting leads for future reference. The second goal I retain for this blog is related to the craft of writing. I hope to improve my academic writing style. While a blog's casual format precludes its use as a venue for perfecting footnoting and referencing according to the Chicago Manual of Style, that same format should make it easier to see the myriad flaws, shortcuts, and nonsense that I slip in between my points, arguments, and theses.
