“Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day.” Benjamin Franklin
Who knew… I was checking out blogs on Freshly Pressed when I came across a post that caught my attention. It was a post by my British homeboy; TheBoyEllis Blog. He gave his blog a bit of wellie by sending out feelers to test the Blogging buddy avalanche that has been part of the DailyPost: PostaADay/Week challenge.
He was hoping for some blogging action; the proverbial comment love via a committed buddy. Instead of getting a buddy or two, he got gobsmacked and featured!
WT* WoW! I started to leave him the usual supportive blog comment: Kudos! Congrats! Blah, blah, blah… You mf rat, you fab music lover you 😉 and on. I was especially happy for him because he was/is truly appreciative (read his follow-up post) of the love coming his way from the rest of us. 🙂 As I was signing off, I wrote “Have a…” and the phrase “Blogalicious Year!” popped in my head.
Whoa! I thought, I just coined a new word … but, I better Google it to make sure before claiming ownership of the word; like my dearest, talented sisters – Bootylicious & Fabulocity claimed their special words. Hey, we all deserve to coin our special words. I checked in with Google and sure enough the word loaded; all 42,100 of them. 😉
Lo and behold, I found a whole site – MyBlogalicious.com – run by a group of savvy blogging ladies who have built a community devoted to celebrating diversity in social media, and dedicated to the fine art of supporting multicultural women bloggers. They even have a movie – Be Blogalicious: The Movie – produced by Tyler New Media….showcasing highlights of a Blogalicious weekend. Also, plans are in the works to hold the next Blogalicious 2011 weekend/conference in Wash, DC. Do pay them a visit and peruse their offerings.
As for TheBoyEllis? I ended up writing “Have a Fab year!” as the sign off to my comment. He got well deserved props from FP for giving his blog a bit of wellie. He’ll understand… He’s English. Pay him a visit, read both posts and leave a comment – they are spot-on!
And the wackiest advice I ever heard? If a word pops into your head, it’s all yours baby. Claim it and copyright it… yeah right! Double check first … It depends! Have a Blogalicious Year all of you! 🙂
Do you have a favorite word? Have you ever used a word you thought was unique to you and then found out otherwise? Are you the brilliant owner of a special word? I’d love to read your favorite or wacky word. Leave me a comment and I’ll reciprocate. Do share!
Positive Motivation Tip: Take a chance and write … You never know what good awaits you.
