SoMe Magic Words

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

For the past few months I’ve been experimenting with two new (to me) social media sites – Tumblr and Pinterest.

Pinterest is basically an online corkboard – a site in which you would take images that you like and pin them up to the board for inspiration. But this is all online – you take user photos that you like and pin them to your own personal boards.

As I mentioned, Tumblr is another site to blog from, but it’s way more visual and way less wordy than other forms of blogging.

Both are very appealing to me because I’m a super visual person.

Posting to both of these sites is quick. During breakfast or lunch, I’ll just search something that I’m thinking about and pin it or post to Tumblr.  

Well for 2012, I’m going to something a little different. I came up with 250 words of things I like. Things like sequins, glitter, cupcakes, sun, beach, etc.

The list goes on. I then cut them into little pieces.

When I feel like blogging, I’ll pick out the name of one of these things out of a jar and that’s the magic word of the day.

So things I post to my Tumblr and Pinterst accounts will revolve around the magic word. If I do a search and don’t find something, well then I won’t post!

(the scientific sparkle jar)

So let’s start making magic. Today’s word is:

This is no lie. It's just what I pulled from the magic jar! 

Check out my Tumblr and Pinterst for the images I pulled for the day!

Oh some other things to note: I’ll only use one word for this year, I most likely won’t post daily and while some words are seasonal (i.e. Christmas) I may pull them at different times of the year (i.e. summer).
