Complications of a university professor
I have a lot of responsibilities. I'm in charge of a news website that is staffed 24-7, I have a class of students who are expected to work on long-term projects, an e-portfolio and help edit my 24-7 website. I also happen to be the chair of the journalism school's technology committee and I'm on the school's policy committee. I am on a campus board that encourages professors to use technology. I'm also always looking for little projects here and there that might help me pay for my life -- contest judging, presentations, manuscript evaluations. I'm also juggling the side of my life that includes two kids, two dogs and husband. It's nutty. That's why I have to apologize for the brief delay in blog posts. I'm swamped.
