You’ve noticed that my posting frequency took a big dip in August. That’s what happens when a professor takes a new job. I am now a full professor at the University of South Carolina – Upstate, in Spartanburg, SC. Specifically, I’m at the George Dean Johnson, Jr., College of Business and Economics. How has this disrupted my blogging routine?
First, there is the moving. In this case, from my Fargo, ND, apartment back to the family in Bowling Green, OH. Then, my work stuff from Bowling Green down to Spartanburg, SC. Eventually, I will be able to move everything and everybody from the family home in Bowling Green down here to Spartanburg.
Second, there is the start of a new semester. Every university seems to have its own way of doing things. In addition, there are new colleagues to befriend and new work routines to learn. Oh, and new students to develop relationships with. I intend to write about the Upstate students who are great!
Third, there is learning how to live in a new city. I love it down here. I especially love playing in the local bridge clubs in Spartanburg and nearby Greenville and Tryon.
I’ve been keeping a list of blog posts to write, and it just hit 30. I better start working on the backlog.
