Word Up, YO! Week 2

Time for Round 2 of Word Up, YO!

I’ve teamed up with Liz over at a belle, a bean, and a chicago dog and Kristin at Taming Insanity, because yes, we are geeks, and we love words. Hence, our self proclaimed title: The Nerd Mafia.

Mommy of a Monster
In case you were hiding under a rock missed it last week, you probably want to know what Word Up, YO! is, right? Well, it’s a word game…we give you a word of the week (WOW!), and you work it into one (or more if you’re adventurous!) of your posts during the week. But these aren’t ordinary words you’d use in everyday conversation, so you’ll have to get creative! Once you use the word, you slap the badge on your post, and come over and link up on one of our blogs!

• Use the Word of the Week (WOW!) in a post as many times as you legitimately can

• Use the WOW! correctly in your post, we’ve included a definition to guide you on this journey

• Include the Word Up, Yo! button somewhere in your post

• Write a post with the WOW! and link it up anytime during the week the linky is open (Sunday-Friday)

• Link up below to your relevant post, not your blog home page please

That’s it! No mandatory follows, no mandatory comments. Visit as many other linked blogs as you can.

At the end of the week, the Nerd Mafia will decide on a “winning” post. We’ll feature the winning posts with the new word. A new Word of the Week and featured post will be published every Sunday.

***Just to clarify: you can link up anytime between Sunday and Friday!***

So, here is this week’s WOW! word, along with a definition from dictionary.com:

1. a minor weakness or failing of character; slight flaw or defect: an all-too-human foible.
2. the weaker part of a sword blade, between the middle and the point (opposed to forte).

So go for it! Be creative! And don’t forget to link up!

And so it goes…

    You Nerd Mafia gals must be really into blades or something. I'm beginning to see a theme here.

    Ok, so, I'm really excited about the new word. I'm afraid some won't be able to see past my foibles to the true me behind the blog...such is life. But I will give it my best shot.

    Be seein ya!

    I will most definitely be participating this week as that is the coolest word EVER.
  3. Oh how fun! I'm a bit of a nerd too, so this is right up my alley. I will definitely try to play, but I really look forward to seeing all of the other posts. Great idea!

    I think my comment got eaten.
    I tagged you in my most recent post, and I love the word!
