Interverbal: Where This Blog is Headed

The recent birthday of this blog prompted me to think about where this blog has been and where it is headed. In the last year it has become evident that there is a level of readership here, which I did not expect or plan for. For a short time recently I wondered if now was the right time to stop posting to Interverbal and focus solely on my research and professional activities.

After some thought, I decided that this point hasn’t come yet and that I still had many projects I would like to do on this blog. I composed a comprehensive list of projects that I intend for the future both near and far.

Some of these will be controversial with some folks e.g. (#6, 7, 8, 10, 22), however, hopefully good discussion will arise from such.

2 A Review of Rick Rollins Latest. 3 Days

I'm glad you decided to keep Interverbal going.

All the projects on your list (even--no, especially--the controversial ones) are exciting.

Hi John

Sure some of it's controversial, but it all looks really interesting, particularly 5,6 and 7.


PS Happy belated Birthday

Good heavens! I don't plan that far ahead. I mean, I have a few proto-ideas percolating in an Ideas folder, a couple of thoughts scribbled on my To Do card. Generally a post just grabs me by the lapels and demands to be written. My Muses can be real taskmasters that way!
