Art News Blog will now have an article posted on the Encyclopaedia Britannica Blog from time to time. I even have my own profile page here. I have a little giggle to myself when I see my name on a list of real writers. Most of the others on the list seem to have books published and/or have “Ph.D” after their name. So I feel a tiny bit inferior as I didn’t even finish my arts degree and have never wanted to be a writer.
I do like a challenge though, so if you see me starting to use words that you have never seen before, just know that it’s me trying to look more important. I’ll keep the dictionary close by and do twice as much fact checking before I click publish on each post now. I wonder if I should get an editor in or maybe even a ghost writer too.
Here’s some posts of interest on the Britannica Blog (not by me)..
