Welcome to my workshop on the world wide web!
My name is Joshua Whiting (he/his or they/theirs.) I am a dad, a husband, a media specialist in the educational technology department of a school district, a writer, a learner, a librarianish person, and maybe sometimes some other things.
I want to write and make more things, so I’ve started with this site. I’m building it mostly from scratch to force myself to learn more about web design and coding.
On this site I’ll share writings and updates, things I’m working on, thinking about, or interested in, both professionally and personally. It may eventually serve as a central archive of anything I do anywhere on the internet that I want to preserve, but it is not quite there yet.
You can find a menu of additional features by clicking on the ‘+’ sign in the top right corner of this web page.
Could not get enough writing random stuff in my notebook this morning - now I have to type random stuff in my digital notebook this afternoon - and post random stuff on my website this evening.
Start of a new month and almost start of a new school year (I don’t go to school or teach but my work still goes by school years) seems like as good a time as any to restart on my blog and social media…
I am on screenpage 455 of 1034 of The Overstory, by Richard Powers, reading it on my phone.
I started reading The Inquisitor’s Tale by Adam Gidwitz with my kids tonight.
