Week 2 Topic - googled

Postby Deb Porter » Thu Apr 10, 2014 10:14 pm

Here we go again, Challengeers. Back with another word in the evolution of the English language, although, this one is the evolution of language generally. It is a perfect example of how language evolves with our culture.

So, as you have all probably seen by now, the topic for this week is:

GOOGLED
http://www.faithwriters.com/writing-challenge-intro.php

Mike was having a little trouble with the link for clarification, but this is it: http://bit.ly/1lVxN7y

It's not a noun (unlike the company, Google). It is a verb. To google something is to do a search online using Google. Some people google symptoms when they are sick. Some google holiday locations and flights. Some even google themselves. Examples of using it in everyday speech would be:

"I had a crushing headache this morning, so I googled brain tumor to make sure I was okay."
"Isn't that actor dead? I'll google him and see. He'd have to be ancient by now.
"

As always, you don't need to use the actual word in your entry; however, in this case, it probably wouldn't hurt. Whether you do or not, the key is to show the meaning of the word, and as googling is something you do on Google (not a different search engine), it probably will help make it clearer if you use the actual word at least once to clarify that.

Most important thing, though, is to have fun. This is a fun quarter of topics that should ultimately make for a fun book.

Enjoy the creative process and feel free to chat about the topic here.

Love, Deb Image

Thomas Umstadtt Jr. says he googles 100-150 times per day...and he's a website designer! Shows how much we can learn through a search or dozen, huh?

Should be a fun topic to play around with...

Wow about that amount of googling. I google a lot every day, but not that much (although I've never counted. LOL.)
