Many of my recent blog posts have focused on the fact that 10 years have passed since I started this blog, which has brought up a certain nostalgia for me, as well as the stark reality that my posts need to be cleaned up. Ten years will accrue a lot of broken links and unnecessary tags, if my blog is considered to be a representative sample. It also means that I’m in the depths of making sure all my photos aren’t being pulled from Flickr, which has proven a real treat.
March, like February, is a month that I posted rarely in over the years, but there are still some good bits around. I think I go into hibernation every spring, pretty much. Regardless, here is the best of March that my blog has to offer through the decade.
A Decade of Blog-tastic March(s)
March 30, 2008: Honeybee Haiku Cycle: Part 1
This is part one of my four part haiku cycle and contains three poems, most of which I still think are worthwhile.
March 27, 2013: The Martian Chronicles: “Ylla” by Ray Bradbury and The Problem That Has No Name
This is an analysis of the story “Ylla” from Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles in the contact of Betty Friedan, for all the feminist Science Fiction scholars out there (which I need to be). This analysis is short, but I’m proud of it nonetheless.
March 22, 2014: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is my only post from March 2014, written after my first time teaching Gatsby to Juniors in public High School.
Like I said, slim pickings this month, but I guess it’s good to know that my Marchs of the past weren’t a total waste?
