I am drowning. Not literally, obviously, but it sure feels like it. I’m sitting on my couch surrounded by papers and notebooks to grade. Why is this? I could point out that it is the end of the school year so I have to calculate final grades. While this is true, I also have students who are terrible procrastinators. Seriously, they are awful. So, I have a lot more grading than I should. Yet, I’m being kind so I’m grading assignments that I should not. Some might even say that I’m a sucker. It is so bad that my parents are grading objective tests for me. Anyway, the reason I am sharing this is simple. As much as I would like to be blogging tonight (as I’m writing this Thursday night), I’m not going to be able to do a whole new blog.
So, I am doing the next best thing. I looked at the blogs that have been published on June 1st and ran across one entitled: “Just a Number on the Metal Fence.” I knew exactly what it was. To summarize, it is one I wrote about what the fan community was like during the Red Carpet Massacre era. I focused on the division between the fans that liked the album and the ones that didn’t. It is a blog that I felt like I did a decent job explaining myself. Likewise, it is one that caused a whole bunch of people to react. On the day the blog originally came out, I was at a political training. My phone buzzed with notifications all day. I couldn’t keep up.
I suggest that you read it and see if you, too, have a lot to say. The blog is here: Just a Number on the Metal Fence.
