One of my goals for 2012 has been to blog more. Much more. When I first set this goal, I had great aspirations of posting frequently. However, I had a Ph.D. to complete, and quite frankly, it demanded much higher priority. Now that I have submitted my dissertation and completed my Ph.D. requirements, I have several half-finished posts that will appear soon. Also, since I have made the switch to Octopress, I will be relocating selected posts from my previous WordPress blog.
