First of all, I apologize for the delay in posting. I have no excuse other than just being busy. But I'm getting back into the swing of things and I wanted to write about a great opportunity I had a couple of weeks ago. Thanks to friend, volleyball captain, and frequent T.I.N. visitor Dave P.'s current teaching job at a local university called Madonna University, he asked me to present to one of his classes about blogging. I was temporarily considered a blogging expert. So I put together a presentation to go through with his class and the students learned about blogging at a general level. I called it, "Blogging: What It's All About, Why You Might Want to Do It, and How To Do It Too." My intent was to introduce them to the world of blogging and to get them interested in blogging to the point that some of them might even start one. I don't know if I was successful, but one of the assignments Dave handed out, was for the students to comment on one of my blogposts. (You might have noticed the sudden increase in comments). I appreciated the insightful comments from the class members. I want to thank Dave, his class for paying attention and being nice considering how late in the day it was. Thanks also to them for the gift certificate to a local vegetarian restaurant which I will use soon.
In addition to presenting, somebody else Dave works with, Dan, was nice enough to record my whole presentation as a podcast you can download here --> Download Atul_Blogging_Things_Ive_Noticed.mp3 . This is great if you want to learn about blogging or if you want to hear what I sound like the night after staying up late to finish a presentation. Thanks Dan. Overall, presenting to students about blogging was a great experience and made me feel like becoming a professor. It sure beats presenting to management.
