…a few more words about the history of the blog formerly known (briefly) as New Faculty Majority Day, started by Steve Street to support Bob Samuels' New Majority Faculty Day (April 30, 2008-9). It was a good idea that, unfortunately, didn't take as an event but spawned at least two enduring blogs that followed different but related paths: this one and Bob Samuels' Changing Universities, which, as the linked post shows, also started as a blog for his event.
From March 2009- December 2013, this one served as The New Faculty Majority blog for the New Faculty Majority. Posting a few comments got me started blogging here and becoming active in NFM. Steve invited me to be a guest contributor, recommended me for the board, and, not a blogger at heart and in failing health, published a total of 15 posts through October 2009 before turning full blog admin over to me. Out of close to 600 posts since March 2009, less than 10 are by other others, including but not limited to board members listed as contributors.
