Blog = Web + Log
Hi Everyone! And by everyone, I mean, the 2 people who might actually read this blog!
So, it seems like these days everyone and their mother has a blog, so I guess it’s time for me to jump on the blogwagen (blog + bandwagen). Actually, if my mom got a blog, I’d be really scared…I mean, her getting Facebook was bad enough! I’m starting this blog as a brain dump for my word nerdiness, so there’s a good chance that most of my posts will be about my word-related passion – creating portmanteaux. Portmanteaux are word combinations, such as brunch (breakfast + lunch) and smog (smoke + fog), and for some crazy reason, I freakin’ love them. Even more than I like using existing ones, I like creating my own. So much so, in fact, that I’m creating a website where people can submit and rank each others’ portmanteaux. Hey, I warned you that I’m a word nerd.
Anyway, about me – I’m a word nerd, a phonerd (phone nerd), an IT nerd (by trade), and a ping pong nerd, if that exists. I’ve been living near and working in Hartford, CT for the past 3 years since graduating from RPI, and definitely still consider New Jersey home sweet home.
That’s all for now, stay tuned – plenty of word nerdiness and portmanteau goodness to come!
