Regular visitors here know that reading a well-turned phrase has an endorphin-like affect on me. I have recently come across a blog that threatens to send me into a blissful stupor of chocolate-factory proportions. That blog is Away With Words and I couldn’t wait to add it to my “Night Lights” blogroll.
The blogger is Nancy Friedman, and she describes herself as “…chief wordworker of Wordworking, a name developer, corporate copywriter, and recovering journalist. She swims in San Francisco Bay and bakes in her Oakland, California, kitchen.”
The blog focuses on “names, brands, writing, and the quirks of the English language” and is a witty and aesthetic take on our culture and the joys (and tears) of the English language (think “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” with an American sense of humor.) In addition to the breezy posts, Away With Words has the most distracting blogroll I’ve ever come across. Check it out!
