March Madness Early Returns/Blog Ennui

Things are heating up in the NCAA Tournament, and here are my early observations about my picks in the "Bloggers pool": so far I'm glad I picked Manhattan over Florida. Maryland should hold on against UTEP (they'd better, I have them going a long way).

And I'm regretting my last-minute change of heart on the Texas Tech-Charlotte game. I'd originally picked TTU to win precisely because their coach, Bobby Kinght, is one of my least favorite people in college sports. But then I went and read too many one too many tournament previews and changed my pick against my instincts. Doh!

Still feeling a little blog-ennui (no perma-link, see the 3-18-04 entry titled "Busy"). I'm still trying to figure out why. It may be something like the "dry spell" described by Liz, but I think it has more to do with how I've been using the blog lately. I've focused less on using the blog as a research journal, which may explain why I haven't been as satisfied with it lately. I've also been doing a lot of writing outside the blog, which means a lot of quick link-and-comment entries rather than developed ideas. Perhaps this means I should change my expectations of what a blog should do.

More later, but I need to get back to my conference paper.
