Blog Every Day in November is a challenge hosted by Elizabeth of Rosalilium a lifestyle blog.Today’s topic is Newsflash.
This was one prompt I was not looking forward to writing about. So much news is about disasters, crime, tragedies and other upsetting things. Good news does not seem to feature in news reports.
Today I am happy that there is an item of news, which does not fit the list above and is something, which really interests me.
Oxford Dictionaries have named their “Word of the year”.
The word is selfie.
I first noticed this word earlier this month, although its history goes back more than a decade in Australia.
Being of the silver-surfers’ generation I am not always the first to learn these sorts of words. Another Blog Every Day in November participant used it in her Day in the life post. The meaning was self-evident. (I mean it was obviously referring to taking a photo of herself; it didn’t mean self-evident!)
If you would like to see a selfie of me you could check out my twitter profile.
I wonder what other newsflashes will attract bloggers attention today?
