A to Z of Leicester in 40 words and why this is a quadragintal blog
Every day in April, with the exception of Saturdays, I will be blogging about an aspect of Leicester working my way through the alphabet. Each blog will be precisely 40 words. It concentrates the mind and it's easier to read. Oh yes, and I’ll still be posting my usual chatty blogs once or twice a week.
During the month I’ll be visiting as many other A to Z Bloggers as I can and leaving comments. If you’re an A to Z Blogger then welcome and do please leave a comment. If you’re not but you’d like to join then visit Tossing It Out or Talli Roland and you can add your name. There’s still time.
And finally, about that word quadragintal, I follow a blogger at Coffee Rings Everywhere who writes drabbles. She explains that a drabble is a blog that contains exactly 100 words. I searched the dictionaries but could find nothing to describe a 40 word blog. I tweeted a query and Alison Bacon a blog friend, came up with the word quadragintal. We have introduced this word into the world and so it now exists. Impressive, huh!
