I have been getting quite a lot of comments lately. Some of them are repeats. They are almost always positive in nature but somewhat generic in content, meaning they could apply to other blogs as well. So, I am in a quandary as to what they actually mean and the motivations behind them.
I get the feeling that when some people surf the net, they use a cut and paste comment to certify their stamp of approval. If so, I certainly appreciate it. However, I would appreciate it even more if you asked me some questions. I know you must have some and I am a teacher as well as a scientist. This means there are no wrong questions. If you are reticent to do so in a public forum, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be advised that I may share the discussion on the blog but will not reveal your information unless you give me permission to do so. Is that a fair deal?
P.S. I will be the first to tell you that I don’t have all the answers, but then again, who does? We can and must learn from each other.
