Word of the Week: Reboot

Posted in Word Fun tagged , , , , at 10:22 am by The Word Jar

My trusty Webster’s 11th defines reboot as “to start or ready for use again.” Pretty straightforward. I chose to highlight reboot this week because I felt it was time to reboot The Word Jar. It’s not exactly The Word Jar v2.0,┬ábut after so many months of not posting, it felt like I needed a kickstart.

Enter WordPress’s Post A Week Challenge (or Post A Day, for those chatty types).

Always a day late and a post short when it comes to blogging, I’m coming a little late to this challenge, which started at the beginning of the year. In an effort to get their bloggers to post more, WordPress has challenged its bloggers to post weekly or daily entries. (Daily entries just boggle my mind, if only for the massive amount of time it takes me to prepare a single post, but that’s a blog topic for another week.) Nothing like a little outside motivation to get the creative juices flowing, right?

So, dear reader(s?), I pledge to enrich my life, if not yours as well, by posting at least once a week. I’ll try to keep my end of this bargain. If I’m not busy reading. Or writing a post. Or editing (and re-editing) said post.

I’ll use this post as my official entry into the challenge, so don’t expect another post until next week, but I’ve also updated the blog by adding a page for upcoming book festivals and publishing events. I’ve tried to include events from all over the country, but if you know of a fun book or publishing event in your area that I’ve missed, please let me know and I’ll gladly include it.

Until next week, happy reading (and happy posting)!
