I've stopped adding material to SpanLog for lack of time. Next year I will try to do a weekly blog for each of the courses I teach instead of trying to keep the blog current on a daily basis. I will also be moving SpanBlog over to TypePad, which although not free like Blogger, allows me to customize my blog and has many more nice features.
