The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

The thing with work is that even when you love your job, it’s work. I love editing with a shameless passion (and I will throw down over Oxford commas and dangling modifiers), but day after day of the same thing, no matter how enjoyable, can become tiresome. Luckily, I work for an awesome company, and we’re more like a team than an office. And, although I’m no expert on sports, I’m fairly sure teams generally like to play. To boost our spirits and give our busy brains a break during […]

Word Criminals: What's Your Record?

Editors and logophiles the world over cawed in abject delight and hilarity when, on July 15th, “Weird Al” Yankovic released the second song on his new album. “Word Crimes,” a spoof of Robin Thicke’s macabre “Blurred Lines,” is a harsh criticism of language abusers in a modern world dominated by hasty and careless communication. While the sentiment is a little overwhelming—once you realize you’ve committed one of those dastardly word crimes, I can tell you that the shame is unbearable—one thing is clear: there are some culturally pervasive writing pet […]

Featured Editor of the Week – Amanda Green

It’s been a while since we’ve done a Featured Team Member post. The Content Runner team has been rearranged a bit since April, with some of us embarking on new journeys and others joining the Content Runner legacy. With that said, it’s time to introduce one of our newer team members, the vivacious editor and project manager, Amanda Green! Tell us about yourself. I’m 26, was born in Sacramento, California, but moved all up and down the west coast through most of my childhood, mostly in Oregon, Idaho and Washington. I’m […]

Spinning Out of Control: The Importance of Unique Content

Almost every thought you’ve thunk has already been formed by another person, in another place or time. This isn’t to say your thoughts aren’t important; this just means that humanity, as a whole, participates in this wonderful and far-reaching shared experience of thought exploration. Regardless of how they came to be, your thoughts are unique because they’re your own creation, an ethereal byproduct of your experience and your intelligence that can float away on a updraft of brainwave to change the world. Oh, The Tangled Web We Weave When it comes to […]
