Word of the Day #1 - Ubiquitous

Welcome to The Letterbug's Word of the Day! There are some words in the English language that are nifty, or interesting, or weird, or just fun to have rolling from your tongue. Whichever category they fall into, I thought it would be fun to share a few of these words with you.

I won't be so brazen as to suggest that I will be posting a new word every day - it would just never happen. However, when the planets align and I find a spare 5 minutes in my day, I promise to devote them to finding you a 'Word of the Day'. Okay?

So here we go...

Word of the Day #1:

Ubiquitous [u·biq·ui·tous] adj. Being or seeming to be everywhere, or in all places, at the same time; omnipresent.

This word just looks so handsome, and could do with being used a whole lot more often. See if you can casually throw it into a sentence or two today - I dare you!

EG: "Mosquitos have become an ubiquitous presence on Grammar's porch just after sunset this year. Alas!"

Until next time...

BUG BITS - Forcefield Electronic Security

I love newspaper clippings. If any of my family or friends happen to make it into a newspaper or magazine I feel compelled to take the clipping and keep it. Old fashioned? Perhaps. But for me it's like trying not to close your eyes when you sneeze - near on impossible to control.

You can imagine then, how excited I was to write an editorial piece for Garth Heywood of Forcefield Electronic Security. Just before Christmas he had a 300 word slot in his local paper, the Blue Mountains Gazette. Here's what we wrote:

Stay tuned for more of my hopelessly belated Bug Bits soon!

One day...

I sometimes dream that one day my office will look like this:


Instead of this:

Tee hee - happy Friday everyone!

Happy New Year everybody!

Wow! What a whirlwind end to 2010. It was more than a relief to take some time to relax and enjoy family and friends over the Christmas period. Santa left some wonderul gifts for us under the tree, and we have been working overtime to eat up all of the leftover ham.

And now it is time to look ahead to the sparkling new year ahead. I can't wait to get stuck into my first round of Letterbug projects, commencing Monday 1oth January.

Whenever it is that you decide to leap back into 'business as usual' for 2011, consider the copywriting you undertook last year.
  • Did the task of producing a monthly newsletter feel like a constant weight around your neck?
  • Did your press releases fail to get the results you were hoping for?
  • Was blogging a never-ending item on your to-do list?
  • Did your business writing simply take up too much of your valuable time?
If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, perhaps it is time to consider getting more help.
Perhaps you could do with a little bit more Letterbug in your life!
Start the business year off with a positive step forward - contact me about your copywriting needs for 2011. Don't be shy!
I look forward to all of the wonderful writing journeys that I know you all have in store for me in 2011. Let's get cracking!
