Welcome! I am Dr Craig J Bellamy from Melbourne, Australia. This is my personal, reflective blog and I started it just four months after WordPress was launched in 2003.

I mostly blog about education + digital humanities + travel.  Most of the posts are ephemeral and fleeting, but many posts are original and have remained popular for many years. Some of these can be found in the featured section.

AI writing statement: As of 2023, some of the posts on this blog (especially the technical ones) have been written with the assistance of Open AI GPT 4 and other AI tools such as, Tome and Petal. This includes drafting, text arrangement (dot points, steps etc.), and idea generation.  Approximately 30% of the final product of some blog posts reflects these contributions. I usally write author statements on these posts using guidance from leading publishers or cite them through standards from the ALA or MLA (we are all still figuring this out, but in my mind, it is better to try).
