Once upon a time, I got my degree in Journalism.
I chose Journ rather than Advertising, because it covers virtually everything — a lot like my interests. And what do newspeople call what they write? A "story."
Even the hard-nosed world of Advertising is about stories. This was famously demonstrated by my early hero, David Ogilvy, and in today's socially-focused media. Behind every post, whether intensely thoughtful, heart-wrenching, whimsical or nonsense, there is someone's personal story. And a story is the way to draw readers in ... if it's a good one.
In fact, whether you're writing a press release, package copy, or an article about industrial box-making machinery, it's sure to be more interesting if you find the story and tell it well.

I'm an editor at Wikipedia, and have made hundreds of edits and contributions, ranging from Radio Advertising and the Eames Lounge Chair to Paul Newman's racing career and Talk Like a Pirate Day. It's fun, but requires attention to detail. Let's talk about it.
