As a former educator, I found blogging an excellent way to connect with my students in a non -threatening way. Since I left teaching two years ago, weekly blogs have helped me transition to a non-academic life. Typically, my weekly blogs combine text and photos that center around unusual or unexpected sightings. I encountered in travel. My best blogs yield some statement about the human condition in the 21st century. I would love to connect with those who have had similar travel experiences. I also value feedback on my writing style to avoid excessive word use and use of flowery, academic jargon. My one year blogging goal is to compile my blogs in a travel book of a non – fiction or historical fiction nature.
