About Pied Type
Reason, rant, and rumination
“Pied” type is letterpress type that has been pied, or spilled, into an unsorted heap. It seemed the perfect name for a blog created by a retired editor whose jumble of topics emanates from a similarly jumbled mind.
I worked in print publishing for thirty years, mostly in Oklahoma City where I grew up; half of those years were spent as managing editor of a medical journal. And I’ve been publishing on the internet since 1995. These days I enjoy designing, writing, and publishing this blog (more than 3,500 posts since 2002) and writing about whatever is on my mind. Whistling in the wind, probably, but I enjoy it nevertheless. Another blogger compared it to putting messages in bottles and tossing them into the sea.
Current events, politics, the environment, random musings, etc. You never know what you’ll find here. For the record, I live in Greater Denver and am a registered Unaffiliated voter, grandmother, introvert, atheist, gamer (yep, serious video games), and cancer survivor.
Previously this blog’s tagline was “Old editors never die, they just revert to type.”
