Over the next month or so, the rate of blogging is going to be somewhat reduced. I will not quite be able to keep up my normal very-nearly-daily schedule. My regular readers deserve an explanation for this, and this is that explanation. Unfortunately, I have 5 3,000-word essays and what remains of a 10,000 word dissertation to complete by the first of May for the final year of my undergraduate degree at the University of Warwick in England. I am capable of writing these posts and doing those essays simultaneously, but not with the level of mental energy I would like to be able to devote to each. Rather than write bad blog posts or bad essays, I have decided to somewhat curtail blog output between now and May 1. I do not plan to stop blogging entirely, but I expect the posting schedule to be considerably more random during this time. I am not certain how big the reduction will be or if it will last all the way until May 1–this depends on how quickly and easily I move through these essays. When I have finished these essays, I expect to resume the standard very-nearly-daily schedule. I thank my readers both for their continued readership and for their patience during this time. I promise those of you that stick with me a strong summer of frequent blogging.
As of April 28, I have completed my essays for Warwick and will resume the usual very-nearly-daily blogging schedule. Thanks for staying with me.
Wow..that’s heck of a lot of work. Good luck with your dissertation and essays.
Thank you–I managed to find some time to do some responding to comments today. I’m about a third of the way through the work at the moment in terms of words written as a percentage of words required.
Hey I don’t know if you take requests but knowing the subjects of your posts I bet you were planning on it anyway…do you think you could write a post on former Reagan budget director David Stockman and the things he’s going around saying on talk shows and radio programs in light of his new book about the recession and why it happened….once your done with essays and dissertation of course.
I might well have hit up Stockman a couple weeks ago if I were not writing essays (I’m most of the way done at this point, but blogging will still remain limited for a little longer yet). At this point though, I do not have much to add to what Paul Krugman has already said about him:
