Blogging again?

frustrated-writer11 My last post in this blog was two years ago. It has been a long time with many things happening in my life, both in the personal and academically sphere. I used to spend lots of time writing the ‘right’ blog post. They used to look like mini simplified academic articles. Yet the process was time-consuming and I also started to have a sort of disillusion about blogging in general. I have to admit that many readers have contacted me and declared that they missed the blog. I am still unsure whether I will start writing again in this blog, mainly because to maintain the blog visible one has to pop-out a least one post a day or one is lost in the ocean of opinions. At the same time, I think that as an academics, I should try not to imprison myself in the Ivory Tower which increasingly has become a solitary confinement of burocracy.

So here a compromise: I think I will restart my blog but it will be more an opinion blog which sheds even it is last academic skin and the post will be shorter- most of then- and written at impromptus instead with the chisel.
I hope this new version of the blog will find you still interested and that we can restart engaging in dialogues and debates.
