Maybe I should promote myself

No, I'm not talking about self-promotion. I'm thinking I'll get myself a fancy title.

For what, writing a blog? Well, according to a snarky column on title inflation in the Economist, "Southwest Airlines has a chief Twitter officer. Coca-Cola and Marriott have chief blogging officers," and "Everybody you come across seems to be a chief or president of some variety."

In such an environment it should come as no surprise that there is no shortage of online job title generators (they're slightly amusing and easy to script, a surefire formula). Picking one more or less at random, I came up with "Senior Communications Analyst", so say hello to Field Notes' newly-minted Chief Senior Communications Analyst for Blogging and New Media.

My corner office awaits.
