Copyblogger Weekly Wrap: Week of May 23, 2011

  1. Oh, piffle.
    I’ve been stuck in Newark, Chicago and Atlanta and only Atlanta wasn’t worse. I bet you were bored, not sure the trip was worth it and anxious to get home; Cleveland’s storm only happened to be in the way.

  2. Nice wrap up, I enjoyed Thursday’s post about the 8 best selling magazines. Like it says in the Rolling Stone part “read widely and steal every trick you can.”

  3. Johnny:

    Thank you for writing for this blog. It is always a pleasure to read your writing. Please keep up the good work.
    Also, I hope inclement weather and autograph hunters don’t keep you away from attending to events and issues.

    One request: attend more seminars, convocations and conferences and report about your experiences there in your flippant, wry style. You have a funny way of writing and a comedic timing that is easy on the eyes and great to read.


  4. OK, I’ll take the bait.

    As a native Clevelander I’ll opine that there are worse places to be stuck than CLE. While you might expect a midwesterner to show loyalty to the region, I’ll throw Detroit under the bus (Detroit is like Cleveland without the glitter.) Newark is no gem nor is Dulles. And don’t get me started on Heathrow.

    Honestly, getting stuck at an airport – any airport – sucks. It is the nature of the beast. Airports are designed for transit and movement, not waiting and stillness. You’re trapped in some sort of travel purgatory between your origin and your destination.

    If you ain’t where you are, you’re nowhere.

    • Ha, this is actually part of a longstanding inside joke between me and myself. I wasn’t stuck in CLE as a layover; it’s my home airport and I really don’t love living here. They’ve actually spiffed up the airport a lot, and you’re right about Detroit; it’s far worse.
