DO I HAVE ENOUGH VOCABULARY TO WRITE A BLOG?

I write a blog because I have the foolish notion that I can get ideas that are original, and to be perfectly honest sometimes they are, but not that often.  I do a lot of reading and I sometimes find that in the articles I read there are many words that I DO NOT know their meaning. I will give you a few names of these authors and you will see they all write for the National Post. Conrad Black- Rex Murphy – Jonathon Kay and Barbara Kay.  I also read the Globe.Am I alone in not knowing these words ? Do you know these words?

Name of author

Name: Murray Rubin

Short Bio: I was born in Toronto in 1931 to a wonderful mother who divorced shortly before my birth. I owe a great deal of my success to her. I am Jewish but not at all religious, yet my culture plays an important part of my personality. I attended Harbord Collegiate and U. of T. Faculty of Pharmacy. A unique mail-order pharmacy was the first of my endeavours in the profession, followed by many stores throughout Ontario. I have a loving wife, 3 children and grand-children and I am now retired from pharmacy. But what do I write about? Everything! My topics are funny, serious, whimsical, timely, outrageous, inspiring, and inventive. I promise that if you take the time to read any one of these topics – you will not be sorry.
