Around the Blogs
I’ve been meaning to note the arrival of a couple of new bloggers, both ACES members. Kathy Schenck has been offering Words to the Wise for a couple of months. She was Johnny on the spot, noting National Dictionary Day on Tuesday, which, I admit, had escaped my attention, and she makes note of the word of the day feature at her paper, The Journal Sentinel.
And Mark Murphy, copy editor and published author, has just started Murphy’s Craw, which promises “Some whimsical wanderings through the worlds of words, writing, and old movies and TV -- along with selected short subjects.”
Also, Language Hat uncovers some good postings and sites, finding Free Rice, which provides a vocabulary quiz and donates rice, and a good posting about spelling, at OUP.
