To Blog or not to Blog

As those few people who've kept coming back and checking this site for the last few months have noticed, there haven't been any new entries since May.

The reason for this is not that I don't have the time to blog, or that I don't have stories to tell. No, I have the time, and I have at least two to three new stories every week. The problem is that these stories can only be told by providing specifics, and the specifics are such that it would be quite easy to discover which school at work at, and from there it would be a very small leap to learning my identity. And this would most definitely result in my termination.

So I develop quite a case of writer's block any time I think about coming in here and posting. What I want to write about is the idiocy I encounter almost daily. I feel the need to expose the school at which I work, and to see whether or not the experiences I am having there resonate with others. I also think that it's important to have as much personal testimony as possible floating around out there; perhaps someday someone with some authority will gather it all up in an effective manner and do something about the radical excesses of academia.

I've considered the idea of feeding some of these more specific stories to other bloggers, but even were I to spread them out, this school and its faculty are too small for me to be able to hide myself, should the wrong person choose to read the blog entry in question.

What this means is that I need to find a way to reinvent Winston's Diary, something I'm going to try to do over the course of the next couple of weeks, before the school year begins again.

For those 10-20 people who've kept looking in, stay tuned.
