I deal with content. Creating it, managing it, managing those who create it. As such, I turn my hand to a variety of topics– anything from aeronautics engineering to cocktails, from Doctor Who to personal finance. Sometimes that work is linked to projects at Modern Parlance, the content consultancy I founded in 2006. Sometimes it is linked to my work as a freelance writer.
Sometimes it results from my falling down the research rabbit-hole, a situation I find myself in quite a lot. To house all this extra-curricular material and promote myself (and by extension, my work samples of which you can find on the portfolio page) I created Personal Parlance. Here I can share my personal views on the subjects of publishing, books, communication, indexing, writing, education – and anything else that catches my eye.
It is the most business-oriented of the blogs in the four blogs that make up the Modern Parlance Blog Network. I’ve been blogging in a casual way since 1996 and lived in New York for 23 years. At some point in 2005, these two facts came together and resulted in my taking blogging a bit more seriously and creating Greater Gotham. It was at that point that my another interest of mine was taking up a considerable amount of space in my personal blog so I ended up creating Fabulous Foodie, as well – a blog dedicated to the culinary side of life. The Banburian – the most recent entry in the Modern Parlance Blog Network – covers what’s happening and what I find of interest in Banbury, where I am currently living.
