Greetings, dear readers, and welcome to the new school year at the UI. Despite my busy schedule (and propensity to prioritize socialization over many other possibly more productive activities), I'll be doing my best this semester to post at least once per day. Hopefully, I'll be able to do better than that.
However, the purpose of this post is to ask for assistance. If you read this blog, try to post a comment now and then. Doing so provides me with feedback and incentive to post more. If you don't comment, I don't know you're reading my diatribe.
And if you wonder where I get all of my weird ideas, check out my shared items page--that's where I post much of what I read. The url is pretty easy to remember: http://tinyurl.com/christopherpatton
Finally, I'm a perfectionist so this is hard as hell for me, but I'm going to throw caution to the wind and stop concerning myself with making sure my posts here are always stylistically pleasing--or even grammatically correct. Perfection (well, ideally) is for the print edition. This is all about spontaneity and speed.
And here we go!
