Let me just warn you right now that we’re not featuring any corybantic expressions of love today, so if you’ve stopped by looking for something to brighten your Wednesday … you’ve come to the right place!
Just because things aren’t corybantic 24/7 around here doesn’t mean that they’re exactly calm, either. Welcome, my friends, to the middle of your week, and to a very special edition of Wordful Wednesday. I know I say this to you all the time, but I really am so glad that you’re here.
Inspired by a particularly thought-provoking blog post and by my own Easterween shenanigans of the previous weekend, I’ve decided to stretch my wordful wings a little bit today. In the past, these Wednesday posts have featured everything from internet jargon to international travels, but all of the words that I’ve shared with you belonged to someone else before they came my way.
But not today! Today’s word, I’m happy to say, is an amb-original. Considering how much I talk around here, it’s surprising this hasn’t happened before now, don’t you think?
Today’s word is blogmosis (noun): the gradual expansion of subject matter covered on your own blog that occurs as a direct result of coming into contact with awesome folks on the internet.
In other words …
Contrary to how I’ve been acting around here lately, I don’t just appreciate bloggers who pull double duty as Imaginary Boyfriends, you know. I’ve talked before about how much I love being a part of this online community, and I promise I haven’t lost sight of that amidst this raging case of spring fever. If anything, that collaboration and creativity pushes me forward in new directions I might not have ventured to on my own.
And so, because she reins in my online eyelash-bating and helps me hone my comedic timing; because she sends me photos of her own Christmas baking in March for encouragement instead of bemoaning my lack of Martha-Stewart-ness; because she’s just as happy to discuss future plans as the finer points of “Friends” reruns …
It is my great pleasure to dedicate today’s word to my great friend Liz, of Foodforfun fame. Thanks for helping me to be a better blogger, Liz!
As promised, today’s post will wrap up with some shots from Shutterbug Sis. Hard not to feel connected to others and to the world when you see beautiful scenery like this, right?
