I’m on of those bloggers who go through phases of fairly intense blogging and then I’m dead to blogosphere for weeks or months on end. There are lots of things I want to say about about life in Chisasibi, about anthropology and its relationship to colonisation, racism and about social and political issues in general but I often lack motivation to sit and get my ideas down on the screen. Well, there’s nothing like a challenge to motivate me so I decided I’d take WordPress up on their Weekly Post Challenge for 2011. They have a Daily Post Challenge as well but since life is pretty hectic between research, single parenting and occasional substitution work at the local high school, I think a weekly pledge is enough. So I’ll try really hard to post at least once every week in 2011. I’m sure I’ll have to take a haitus once or twice for travel but I’ll try to stick to it for as much of the year as I physically can.
For any interested WordPressers, or wanna-be WordPressers, there is more info on how to participate here.
