Get Me a Copy Editor!




Obnoxious correction of Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day








 

HEY!  SOME IMPORTANT STUFF IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW!
NEW RSS FEED for BLUEBIRD BLVD. I have switched to a more functional RSS feed because the native WordPress version has been posting every single dad-blamed comment on the post RSS, which is not okay with me.   Enjoy the NEW BLUEBIRD BLVD. RSS FEED — embedded videos!  Links!  All the bells and whistles we know and love!   The new feed is from Feedburner, which will be our mainstay unless it becomes glitchy, or Google shuts it down.  Before I chose Feedburner, I tested five other RSS management systems, some paid, some free, and wouldn’t you know it, Feedburner still worked the best out of all of them.
 

DUNE in JUNE in JULY  Due to all of the mishaps of June (and a little bit of early July), we will be doing Dune in June… in July (and a little bit of August) this year.   Two special things—  ONE, we have our own Bluebird Blvd. Google Group!  So, c’mon over and we can talk about DUNE IN REAL TIME!  (WOOT!)  TWO, Last year we did Dune chronologically.  This year, we will be doing Dune thematically.  Ever since last year, my plan has been to put out an open call to writers who might want to do a special topic on Dune.   Interested?   Email me:  bluebirdblvd (at) att (dot) net.  Length and type of thematic Dune story are determined by you, dear readers.  (Audio, video, and image-based entries  definitely encouraged!)


30 STORIES in 30 DAYS   I am writing  30 stories in 30 days covering a range of subjects from Dune (of course) to a piece on the nature of genius in pop music for the Bluebird Sessions to the reboot of Our Sunday Best‘s ongoing special edition on photographers to some new entries in the Bluebird Dictionary.
It’s going to be a blast!
I hope you think so too!

    • Too true, lovely Philosopher Mouse! When I started Bluebird Blvd. in Nov. 2011, I kept thinking, I wish I had an editor and a copyeditor. One/several professional set of eyes makes all the difference sometimes.

  1. It is SO a noun. You know, when you accidentally drop your beef jerky into a glass of water … you get jerkwater!

    No?

    Ah, well. It was worth a try. LOL

  2. :) I’ve been wishing for an editor for some time now. My daughter catches a lot of stuff, but she refuses to read poetry which is what I’m concentrating on at the moment, so I’m pretty much on my own.

    I’m still getting each comment in your comments section, one by one, in my WordPress reader so I’m reminded of you a lot. Great advertising tool!
