Word of The Day Show more
It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.

Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.
I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.
It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.
Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.

This meal will meet our fondest wish.
I wonder. Could this be the first time I have been followed by a company account?
It would surprise me if "you" got much from my toots, but I've been surprised before.
I do hope you will be a successful company, thriving in the Free Software and Open Hardware environment.
