Managing Editor

At the U of L, there is a group of us who get together once a month to discuss issues and projects related to web design. I have not contributed much lately, but I always enjoy the company. Anyhow, since we changed our name from Web Club to Web Forum (another post in itself I am sure), I guess I can discuss it publicly.
One of the things we discussed yesterday was starting a blog with regularly published articles. In truth, it sounds more like a webzine. either way, the Web Unit Manager decided there needs to be some editorial control and I was nominated to be the managing editor.
It does pay off to be overly critical and anal about grammar usage. It’s all about branding.
Anyhow, it should be interesting. The last time I had a position of any similarity was back in grade eight when I was assistant editor on the school newspaper. My editorial knowledge has certainly improved since then.
I guess it also means if everyone thinks the publication is crap, I take the heat.
Should be fun.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.

That does sound fun. I’ve been planning on putting together something of similar concept lately, although don’t have the plan complete yet. Hopefully I can put something cohesive together eventually.
