Good-bye, Old Blog. Hello, New!

It was December, 2010. I was new to Portland and looking for writing jobs. Job applicants were expected to have a web presence. Enter the original “Word Power” blog.

Yesterday, a year and a half later, I posted my last post to that old URL and invited subscribers to follow me here to this new website,, which includes all of the old “Word Power” posts starting from December 2010 on—and the latest post, A Modern Take (Is “Take” a Noun?) on Parts of Speech, published exclusively on the new site.

To all who follow me here, and to any new subscribers, welcome!

Special thanks to Tina Granzo of City Beautiful Design for her expertise and support in setting up this new website and migrating the old blog over to it.
