My blog post on the new Birmingham Post website is still doing the rounds and has now been picked up by the Journalism.co.uk website. Even if it is just a nib (news in brief), I’m pleased.
Strangely, what tickles me about it the most is seeing myself referred to as simply “Geary”.
Now I know that’s the convention for many papers (not ours), but when you see it used for yourself it seems rather odd and I can’t really explain why.
Is it because it makes me sound like a convicted criminal/football player? I’m not sure. I’m going to have to think this one through!
