To post or not to post

When I first returned from the Middle East, several people asked me if I intended to keep posting on my blog, now that I was back in the U.S.

For a while I wasn’t really sure…I didn’t know if my blog was a travel blog, or something more general. I liked the idea that it would continue, but then, shockingly, my day-to-day life in Cambridge didn’t seem to offer the same sort of material as, say, traveling in the West Bank.

Additionally, somewhere in there I actually got a job writing for someone else’s blog. I’ve been writing an editorial column about sustainable design/green building for So I suppose my blogging efforts have been directed, primarily, towards that.

But now, I’m in South Africa, doing research for a project and once again, it seems blogging might be a good way to keep track of notes and thoughts and such. Maybe as it turns out, Cliff Notes is a travel blog. J

I feel some sort of need to recap the months of November, December, January, and February…not really because there were so many interesting things to write about, but rather, because somehow it seems important that I didn’t go straight from Israel to South Africa; there was something in between.

So I think I’ll leave some space for a few posts; hopefully I’ll fill them in, but even if I don’t, there will be some sort of buffer between Africa and the Middle East.
