Word of the Month {WOTM}: Introduction

by | Apr 30, 2018 | WOTM | 0 comments

I really love words – reading them, writing them, speaking them. All of it. But sometimes, when I sit down to write I have a hard time getting started. A few weeks ago, I decided I wanted to do a word-of-the-month (WOTM) post where I use just a single word as my prompt for a post. This is definitely not a stroke-of-pure-genius idea. Lots of bloggers do WOTM posts, and I doubt that my content is going to be any more earth-shattering that the next WOTM blogger’s.

So why am I taking the time to introduce this blog series? Because I felt it only fair to forewarn you – I have ridiculous word associations.

How ridiculous, you might ask? I can find a word association route from crocheting to the length of a giraffe’s tongue and back in like 4 seconds flat.

Why is knowing this important, you might ask? Because I’m totally planning to honor my word-association-stream-of-conscious tendency when it comes to this monthly post…and that might mean we end up in a very different place than you would have thought based on the given word for the month.

Honestly – I think that’s fun and a whole lot less boring than always already knowing what someone is going to talk about just by the title of their post – but I’ve heard that some people like that. So, just know that in my WOTM posts, sometimes the content might obviously connect to the WOTM…and sometimes the connection might be a little more obscure. Either way, I promise to at least try and help you understand how I got to wherever it is I landed.

Lastly, and most importantly, I’d love to hear what your word-associations or thoughts are for each month’s word – so chime in!
