About Pied Type
Reason, rant, and rumination
“Pied Type” seemed the perfect name for a blog created by a retired editor. It’s mixed bag of topics, tossed together during many years of blogging.
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 3,400 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.
“Pied” type is letterpress type that has been pied, or spilled, into an unsorted heap.
