Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Do You Have a Contact Page?

Hello and welcome to the A to Z Blogging Challenge! Letter X came up so quickly. The month has flown by. I hope you have enjoyed all the words I have shared to entertain the Word Nerds. The X word is a brand new word to me. Read more below.



~xenogogy~

A map or guidebook, The Grandiloquent Dictionary – X

About the Grandiloquent Dictionary from its creator, Dr. Christopher Bird: “This is the result of an ongoing project to collect and distribute the most obscure and rare words in the English language. It also contains a few words which do not have equivalent words in English. At present, the dictionary contains approximately 2700 words, though it is constantly growing." 

Dr. Bird is correct about including obscure and rare words in his dictionary. When I googled the word, xenogogy, no dictionary definitions popped up except for this one.
So where did I discover this unusual word?. Morgan at Once Upon a Time blog left a comment on my blog on Day C. So I perused her site finding out she is a gal who loves traveling. On her page including her 39 List (of things she wants to accomplish before she turns 40) I found under # 27 her goal to write a "Xenogogy -- about all my adventures and places we go."  Click here to visit Morgan at Once Upon A Time. 

Thank you, Morgan, for my X Word!!l

One of the best perks of participating in the A to Z Challenge is meeting new bloggers and discovering creative, intelligent, thoughtful folks. I love investigating their blogs.


I would like to nudge bloggers to include a Contact Page so we who visit can drop them a line. Many years ago, I had someone tell me that when I was beginning my blog, and I'm glad she did.

Do you have a Contact Page and/or a Media Page or an About Me page with your bio, links, and a way to contact you e.g. email, Facebook, Twitter, etc? I encourage you to make one now. 
P.S.--If you leave a comment, please leave your link to your blog so I can return the visit. I don't think of it as self-promotion, but rather as being neighborly. And now you know how much I love visiting bloggers. Thank you.

of all participants who signed up
for the #AtoZchallenge 2018.
