As a researcher I am very intrigued by how we as ag communicators and citizens of rural America are adopting and successfully (or unsuccessfully) using new technology to get our message out there. I personally not only research blogs and new technology, but I am in a transition generation that has only started being addicted to the technology (as our millennial generations are). I am “techie” by my own definition and can always be found using new technologies and social networking sites. I have tried my own blogs over the last few years, but a dissertation and the battle for tenure has always kept me at bay. So as I watch other ag communicators continue to adopt blogging, I feel I am a hypocrite if I don’t blog myself. So please read on. I hope to share not only my life as a new professor (or semi-new as my chair likes to say), my research, and my thoughts on agriculture and media.
