Tablet Writing Gig

In person, I’ve always raved about my Tablet PC. However, for what ever reason, I don’t really talk about it on my site very much. I think it mostly has to do with the fact that I view my site as more of a place to let you know what’s going on in my life, not really as a place to convince others to do what I do. One of the blogs I enjoy reading is Student Tablet PC, and now I’m a writer for them. I literally sent an email to Tracy and a few hours later, I had an online interview of sorts with Tracy and her cohort, Trevor. The interrogation interview last the better part of an hour using AIM chat. We talked about everything from my thoughts on Tablets, to what what I’d like to see in the future, school loads, how many credits we could take at our respective schools, and so much more. Tracy and Trevor really seem like some cool people and I think I’m going to enjoy working with them. I digress. They’re going to test me out for a few weeks and see how things go and I really couldn’t be more excited.

I really enjoyed writing for The Oredigger last year, but it really wasn’t the best venue for me. And if you were to go look back at what I wrote about, you would see that they were, for the most part all technology related. So hopefully, STP will be a better fit. I’m not quite sure how often I plan to contribute, however I’m hoping for at least once or twice a week. So stop by Student Tablet PC and check it out.

  1. Dear Andrew,

    Last time I checked, in most circumstances, smoke doesn’t “bellow”.

    You were most likely thinking of “billow”. Which, according to Wiktionary means, “A large wave, swell, surge, or undulating mass of water, smoke or sound.”

    Glad you’re putting those SAAS writing skills of yours to good use. If you need an editor, feel free to send me your articles first.

    *wink*

    Love,

    Should be

  3. I’d like to say I caught that error before you posted, but because of Andrew’s obviously inferior blogging software, I was unable to edit my post. Furthermore, you need a colon after ?should be?. Lastly, what sort of pretentious fop signs their comment with only their first initial? You’re not the Marquis of Ravenscar!

  4. Error fixed (on StudentTabletPC).

    “because of Andrew?s obviously inferior blogging software”
    Until you have a blog, I don’t think you’re in a place to comment on my choice of blogging software.

    Also, who signs their name in a comment when the comment starts out:

    XXX said,

    ?

  5. “Lastly, what sort of pretentious fop signs their comment with only their first initial?”

    “pretentious fop” – singular
    “their” – plural

    Furthermore, I have no need of a colon after “should be.” Excrement comes out from a colon, but after my “should be” came a purification of your filth. If anything, there ought to be a colon at the beginning of each of your posts to warn a reader of their nature.*

    I will agree with you on one point. I am not the Marquis of Ravenscar. I have higher aspirations than to be a mere Marquis.

    Yours truly,
    The Most Noble Alec William Turnbull, Duke Turnbull

    *Note the proper use of “their.”

  6. Sadly, my sarcasm is misinterpreted yet again in the medium of the written word.

    I’m very impressed by your blog, Andrew, but I wouldn’t mind having an ?edit comment? function. Considering how asinine the internet makes me (and most people), it probably wouldn’t have hurt for me to have checked for this function before I posted.

    Also, if you’re the first poster on a comment thread there’s no sort of indication that this “XXX Said,” tag wil be included at the top of your message. So, it’s not a totally silly thing to do.

    You get points for the spell check function.
