The Urban Dictionary is something that can be utilized while blogging. For those of us that don’t know the meaning of such words as, word vomit, def: (A point in a conversation where you say something that you really didn’t mean to.) I’m sure a lot of us out there have used the commonly used analogy of “putting your foot in your mouth.” Word vomit is just the latest way of saying this. I have used the Urban Dictionary quite frequently in my every day conversation with my teen-ager! Get use to it, our language is mutating into this “Urban” way of conversing! The more you know, the more you may be able to converse with the youth today without spatting word vomit!

“Urban Dictionary is more than a dictionary. It’s a catalog of human interaction and popular culture created by hundreds of thousands of people, and read by millions. Urban Dictionary grows with hundreds of new definitions every day.
Hundreds of thousands of daily visitors read Urban Dictionary for witty, honest definitions that explain today’s culture. urbandictionary.com is also available in print, in Urban Dictionary (2005) and Mo’ Urban Dictionary (2007). Look for the 2009 Urban Dictionary Calendar, coming soon.” (Snippet from Urban Dictionary Website.)
I was passed on this little snippet from a book called, “No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog.” A colleague of mine recommends this book for anyone who may have a bit of the writer’s block bug! Here’s a bit of what’s inside!
Don’t snort. Blogger’s block, which is the blog owner’s equivalent of writer’s block, does exist! I have had it many times myself. So, what can you do to get over this particular hurdle and move on to smooth sailing (typing)? Well, there are many remedies and solutions, and each blogger finds their own way to come up with decent writing material. Some of my favorites for getting over blogger’s block and being inspired enough to write again include:
Reading other blogs. You just never know when a particularly moving, thought provoking, memory triggering or even infuriating post will inspire you to write several paragraphs in response. Reading the news. There’s always something to talk about when reading the news. Instead of calling your mom or emailing your friend with, “Did you see that article about [article content]?!“, blog about it. Reading a book. A good book will inspire you to talk about it. Using better blogging books as a guide.
Hey why not check this out at your local library, or you can find it online here at: Amazon.
