Since I started blogging I have come up with some words that I do not think others have coined. So, I decided to list these words and their meanings. If someone else has used these words before I made them up, then forgive me, I did not intentionally claim someone else's words as my own!
I will add to this dictionary as I think of new words to use. I first started this at my previous blog, but have decided to move it here instead!
Usage of my wictionary is encouraged, but please, always link a word back to this page, or, for a shortened link use http://bit.ly/wictionary.
