Word of the Day: Zoetic
I hadn’t heard this word either, while searching for Z prepositions to do for this day. Zoetic is in fact an adjective, as there are no Z prepositions, conjunctions, or interjections. At least, none that Google knew about. So, for the win, since it’s not a noun or verb.
Definition of zoetic: of or relating to life
Relating to life. It feels so appropriate somehow, on this last day of the A-Z Blog Challenge. What is blogging, after all, if not relating to life? Practically by it’s very definition, blogging is zoetic. One of the challenges of blogging, whether you’re writing from A-Z or writing from scratch, is what part of life you’re going to write about. Your passions and interests? Your dreams? Your goals? Your fears? Your sorrows? Your talents? Your stories? Your kids? Your personal challenges and struggles? All of the above? We blog to share our lives, to peek into the open doors of others’ lives, to share a virtual cup together with those we connect with. We blog to sum up our lives, to sort our lives, to keep a record of our lives. We blog about life because we’re trying to navigate it and understand it as best we can, and the writing of it helps us somehow. The connecting with others helps us somehow. Even if we don’t meet face to face, we meet heart to heart over the pixelated highway. Blogging is the front porch of the 21st century of our digital houses. Our posts are us waving at passers-by, and challenges like the A-Z Blog Challenge we just concluded are a virtual block party.
I can see the world from my living room.
I can see your world from my living room.
And I can share mine with you.
Thank you for sharing in this challenge with me. It has been my pleasure to get to know you.
To new friends and old, to challenges, to blogging, to life. Cheers!
