I am away

Hello folks,

I’ll be away for a couple of days, attending a (my very last) academic conference.

I’ll be back on Monday, June 6th, for fresh news, ideas, and tips. Hopefully.

Have a great week!

Why so quiet?

I see I am getting quite a few visits, considering that I am only beginning to keep this blog.

Despite this, it seems there’s a lack of communication between, well, us. I seem to be the only one talking to you. Why aren’t you talking to me?

Maybe some of you are just bouncing off. That’s okay. But those who actually read and stay, I’d really like to know your thoughts and comments.

  • How can I make this blog better?
  • What subjects are you interested in?
  • Do you have suggestions of topics to cover?
  • Do I need to change my theme?

I want to keep this blog informative, but also personal and useful. It won’t all be articles and lists. What else would you like to see?

Welcome to The Meandering Word

To meander means to move around aimlessly, without a specific path. A river meanders. As a word, meandering expresses the idea that it’s the journey that matters, not the destination.

So here’s the beginning of my journey as a freelance writer.

On this blog I will discuss my discoveries in the world of professional writing in general, and of Web writing in particular. I will share tips, good blog posts, book reviews and other things that may be useful to beginning or more experienced writers.

My unique perspective on this (okay, maybe not so unique) is that until a month ago I was sure I wanted to become an English professor in a university. Preparing for the last 7 years for an academic life, I am now facing the endless possibilities of not being an academic.

So again, welcome to my blog, and I hope you find it a good source of useful information.
