Endings and Beginnings

So after almost a year, this will be my last post on this blog.  Now, don’t worry, I’m starting a new blog (here), so you can continue to hear about my musings on various topics.

So why end one blog just to start another?  Well, I’m currently in a moment of transition, of endings and beginnings, and felt that now is the right time to shake up my blog as well.  After almost 2 and a half years, I’ve left Guatemala, and will be undertaking a new adventure in London as Program Officer for Impact and Learning with the Transparency and Accountability Initiative.  In addition, I just defended my Ph.D. dissertation, so now I’m Dr. Brendan Halloran.  Both of these transitions entail going from a more specific set of issues and questions that I’ve been grappling with in this blog to a broader array of matters.  My new blog will reflect these wider interests.

So please follow the next iteration of my blog and see what new ideas I’ll be thinking about moving forward.
