I would like to say in this opening blog that I feel incredibly fortunate to be a college professor. As someone who was quite shy as an undergraduate (not my best years), I feel lucky that I can connect to students on a lot of different levels as people... after all, we were all students once.
But there is anxiety in blogging and sharing your writing with others. My students share this anxiety every semester. But see? This isn't so bad. Let's put ourselves out there as writers, as educators, as savvy (or not-so-savvy technology users) and see what happens.
