When I started this project, the aim was to own traffic from the search engines by writing a post about every single word in the particular dictionary I was using, namely the 1986 edition of The New Penguin English Dictionary. The idea was to write a humorous take on the real definition of the word.
After more than 500 entries, I got bored. After posting something on the word “ale” I didn’t post anything again for more than a year.
I’ve decided to revive the project, starting where I left off but—to make it more fun, recapture my interest and, hopefully, encourage me to keep going a little longer—I’ve decided to take a new tack. Instead of trying to write a humorous take on the real definitions of words, I’m going to make up new definitions that are total nonsense and bear no relationship to the true meaning of the word. We’ll see how it goes.
