What originally began as my personal blog has transformed over time as my own life has changed: when I started creating websites in 1996, I was an undergraduate student and today I am now a father, husband, educational developer & environmental educator. I’ve had the opportunity to write about creating an on-line presence in the context of academia and what originally started as personal blog has slowly transformed, like me, to become a website that also communicates my own professional & scholarly practice.
