Why is there no cap on "new" in your blog name? Did you do it that way on purpose or did you make a typo?

I'm a journalist and I notice typos.

Joanna: Thanks, as always, for reading and for your support. Coming from you, it means a lot.

Rita: If you're referring to the TypePad blurb, the lower case in "new" was their doing, not mine. When I mention this blog's title in a sentence, I usually put it in all lower case.

The logo in the banner is all lower case, not because I have an e.e. cummings fixation, but simply because I like the look. (When designing a logo, non-standard capitalization is okay.)

By the way, it's the "(new)" legal writer because its predecessor was called "The Legal Writer." The parentheses around the word "new" are harder to explain. I guess I did that because "new" doesn't modify "writer" or any other word in the title; instead it sort of modifies the entire title. There's no punctuation that I know of to indicate that, so I appropriated the parentheses, to set the word apart from the rest of the title.

That's great. Your blog is great; you deserve the recognition.

Waiter, what is the TypePad Featured Blog du jour of the day?
