Smith – the skilled information age worker

A Name For Yourself

Some writers’ names have becomes adjectives: Kafkaesque, marxist, Orwellian, sadistic. If your name (or nickname, or blog name) were to become an adjective, what would it mean?

As a Smith, my name already has grammatical connotations.

According to OED smith means “A worker in metal:” Most well known by the term Village Blacksmith, which is interesting because in the real world, I am a manager for a precision metals manufacturer.

Overtime, the word has been co-opted into WordSmith – A skilled user of words. I do like to read, reflect, research & write. Nothing is more pleasant than a well turned phrase, an expansive alliteration {see read, research, reflect & wRite), or an unexpected playful twist.

Wiki provides an even wider range of the use of the word smith.

So now that the research has been done, what will Smith become forever known as? A smith works with words & light to create thoughts. The mined ore of letters is used to create structures built with words, sentences, paragraphs, chapters, books & even this blog posting.

The keyboard is the hammer, reality is the anvil, and passion provides the energy [heat], that creates new, necessary & needed ideas.
