Wordy Wednesday, A Meme From Eric of Ruminations of a Small Town Mountain Boy

I picked up this Meme from Eric of “Ruminations of a Small Town Mountain Boy” and “Chihuatude”.

Eric is a great, generous and dynamic blogger who have introduced new concepts into the world of blogging. Read his posts: Monday’s Writers of the Web, to understand what I mean. It’s only him who has this series of visiting blogs and writing about them in his blog, every Monday.

This Meme that Eric has created is good for writers because you can learn new words and enjoy the challenge of putting it into use. It also allows you to interact with other writers in the blogging world.

The idea is to pick a word from Eric’s list, and leave a comment informing the author of the word. The author then must use the word in the commenter’s blog. The comment using the word should be related to the most recent post of the blog. (Did I get it right, Eric?)

Just like Eric, I won’t pass this on. Anyone who wants to be tagged is welcome.

Just copy the Meme and rules on your own site and leave a comment on this post so I can come and visit you with the challenge of commenting on your latest post- using the word you’ve selected.

I decided to use Eric’s choices as I find them good words and saves me from searching for new words.

Happy blogging !

  1. You got it right Jena. I may do this each Wednesday, It’s been very fun indeed. Thank you so much for exalting my meme. I think I will choose the word tittle-tattle for you. Enjoy, and have a grand weekend

  2. I still have to work on my vocabulary. I mean, it’s not as expansive as most writers’.
