Welcome, 2012!

As we prepare to usher in the new Year of the Water Dragon, I wanted to tell you guys what I have up my sleeve for this blog, and ask for your input, too.

You can expect more book reviews, notes/questions on readings, and periodic updates on what I’m doing with school and our SAF student chapter. In addition, I want to do some current issues roundup type posts that collect relevant news stories and link to great articles I find. I’ve also got plans to interview some of the authors of the books I review for extra insight and possibly a sort of virtual mentoring vibe. Finally, I want to do some photo-heavy species profiles with info about identifying certain plants and what makes them special and/or important.

And as promised, I want to open it up to input from all of you. When you initially subscribed or clicked on the link to this blog, what did you hope to see? What would you like to learn? Leave me a comment and let me know, and I’ll do my best to incorporate any suggestions!

Here’s hoping this year is great for us all.

    I think the news round-up would be a great way for people to quickly understand what’s going on with forestry and politics. I’m sure there’s a lot happening that people aren’t aware of, and many people don’t know how to find out or where to look even if they want to know.

      That gives me an idea, too — maybe I will add a brief explanation of my methods for finding this stuff.

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

      There is a contact link at the top right corner of the page, in fairly large text. It should be pretty easy to find, I hope. Feel free to suggest things via comments, too — I’d be happy to hear it.

    Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

      It would seem it’s just you. It may be a browser problem?
