When the byline is more interesting than the article
I'm not going to pretend this post contains any deep truths orÂ world-changing ideasÂ or heck, any actual information, but -- lately I've been noticing a wee mini-trend of ridiculously named reporters:
Denisa R.Â Superville (writing a column called "City Living")
Helen Couture (writing about dumpster diving)
Rebecca Fairley Raney (who would make an excellent weathergirl)
I am starting to feel like I needÂ a better byline. Using this census-based name generator set at the highest level of obscurity, I have come up with "Trinity Desquare." IÂ have also invented a new Girl Reporter persona for myself, pictured above.Â Please start using my snazzy new moniker immediately. "D2" is acceptable as a nickname.
(Many, many more name generators here.)
