Here’s the link to my “last word” in The Daily from yesterday, in case you missed it. Thank you for all your encouraging notes via Twitter and Facebook yesterday and today (and via email, too!). You guys are the best. And really the reason I wrote my word for so long. But it’s not my last word ever, so fear not, loyal readers. And Haylee Millikan, my delightful editor, has reassured me that if I want to a guest appearance this fall, I’d be welcome to. I might take her up on it, if the occasion warrants!
I’ll be writing more in this space, as I’ve noted before (and linking to other bits of writing I’ll be doing) and will make etymology a recurring feature as I softly relaunch this space over the summer. I had forgotten to mention that I’ll post bits of my dissertation writing here too, along with some of my images, including cartoons and photos, from my social history of the American newsroom, c. 1920-60.
Finally, I’ll also be posting links to as many old words (while acknowledging that original publication rights still definitely lie with the @The Daily). If you have an ideas, word-wise, for me, for next week, please send them my way! I’d love to hear from you.
