My Artisanal Blog

Have you noticed? Everything is artisan today. Even my blog. Not! The word normally is used as a noun. An artisan is a crafts-person, skilled in an applied art. When used as an adjective it means the product of a craftsman or artisan. Not anymore. The word is used on everything from Domino’s Pizza to potato chips. The word means nothing. Even a more high-falluting-bullcrap usage is the adjective,  artisanal. Just makes you want to run out and buy it.

A fellow blogger in New York took his camera on a stroll and made the same conclusion. Everything is now artisan. Check out these great pictures and the most over-used adjective in today’s vernacular expressions.

    Technically, you could go with artisanal and also artesian. It flows under its own pressure. All you do is direct it 😉
