Starting My Blog with a 31-day Challenge

March 1, 2014

Participant Badge for 31-Day Blogging Challenge I’ve been meaning to start a blog for years, ever since Brenda Huettner, Char James-Tanny, and I coauthored a book called Managing Virtual Teams: Getting the Most out of Wikis, Blogs, and Other Collaborative Tools (still available on But well, life intervened, and I couldn’t think of a cool name for the blog, and yada, yada, yada, 7 years went by.

I’ve been working on the setup for this blog off and on for awhile, though I haven’t been particularly diligent about it. But then, I saw the 31-Day Blogging Challenge that Lesa Townsend is running, and decided that I didn’t really have any more good excuses for not doing a blog, and that I should give this a try.

After all, I have a cool name–Pangaea Papers, a cool banner thanks to Shanna Chuma, and a bunch of stuff that I want to write about, mostly regarding topics in global communication, such as technical communication, internationalization, and localization. And, I might stray into science, philosophy, and other things that I’m curious about.

As you will see if you are looking at this site in early March of 2014, I still have some holes to fill, and am also working on my corporate site,…but as a famous philosopher once said, “Perfection is the enemy of good…” (variously attributed to Voltaire, Aristotle, Confucius, among others), so here we go.

Stay tuned…1 post down, 30 to go in March.
