Introducing The ABDPBT Glossary
Thanks to the excellent suggestion of Kate, one of my illustrious lurkers, I have added an ABDPBT Glossary page for the edification of those readers who might be less versed in the goings on of the mommyblogosphere. The idea behind the glossary is that, perhaps, we can expand the appeal of this blog beyond the usual suspects by allowing people to understand the kind of oblique references I make in my posts by allowing everyoneto look up key terms instead of having to google furiously and come up dry for the various wink/nudge things with which I often pepper my writing. Incidentally, sometimes I put wink/nudge things in my posts that are a combination of things or variations of things that actually happened — in those cases, you won’t be able to find an actual glossary reference because I am utilizing that literary technique that is a hallmark of the mommy blogger genre (hyperbole) to make a point. However, wherever possible, I will try to add references either within the posts themselves, or at the end of the posts, for those of you who want to try to figure out the references.
At present, there are like, two terms in it. But I plan to add to it constantly. Please feel free to offer suggestions on what terms I should add, either in comments, or by email. I think the more you can do this, the better, because I will definitely overlook things that need to be explained.
UPDATE: I just noticed that the links don’t show up in the RSS feeds, so this is something that only works while you’re on the site itself. That’s definitely not ideal, but you can always go to the direct link to the glossary page itself, which is here. I will continue to look for better options for glossary plugins in the meantime.
Glossary terms: masterstroke, linkbait taintface, OMG Ponies
