About the Casual Blog
The Casual Blog is written by Rob Tiller (me). I live in Raleigh, North Carolina, and am interested in many things, including music, photography, science, history, travel, and sports. The “casual” in “casual blog” has a particular meaning. Right after I finished college, I got an editorial staff job at the New Yorker magazine. In those days, and probably still, the magazine had a species of articles known internally as “casuals,” which were short, lively non-fiction pieces that couldn’t be otherwise categorized. I’m still inspired by the belief of the magazine’s great editors and writers that it’s worthwhile to produce good writing on interesting things.
