Damien Boath763This week we revisit an oldie but a goodie: USA Vs Aussie slang! Way back in Episode 11 we played a game to guess what the slang terms meant and we've decided to have another round of it.We're also going to look at why we shorten words (diminutive) and how some "short" words are just as long as the word we are trying to shorten. To help us get our head around it we have +Mignon Fogarty along for the ride to explain it for us and to see how well she can guess some of my Australianisms......All this and more on The Newbie Writers' Podcast!The Newbie Writers' Podcast #132 - Diminutive Slang With Grammar Girl!2014-05-10 01:00:002 
Ray Ortega2,189What do you do if someone promotes your podcast but you don't necessarily agree with their content? Do you care? Is there such a thing as "bad press?" At any time, someone can share your content with their own audience be it a simple word-of-mouth mention or sharing your logo, content, or promo. But what if your personal beliefs or brand don't align with theirs? Do you worry that you'll be seen as associated with their brand or is any promo, good promo?Join +Ray Ortega, +David Jackson +Daniel J. Lewis +Mignon Fogarty  and +John Wilkerson  to discuss the topic of podcast promotion and whether or not you feel it's necessary to "police" your brand. This Round will air live at 7:30pm EST, UTC/GMT -5. You can view the Roundtable in the embedded player on this page as well participate in the chat below. Mobile viewers can watch via YouTube at: Podcasters' Roundtable - Round 25 - Promotion PolicePodcasters' Roundtable - Round 25 - Promotion Police2014-02-11 01:30:0048

Matthew Trotter63Okay. I've been collecting shared #writer / #reader circles for the past week or so, and I thought I'd share our combined efforts. Of course, G+ only allows you to share 500 people at a time, so this isn't a complete list, but it's pretty substantial.I've had a blast talking to and getting to know all of you over this past week or so. I've laughed, learned, and loved—a lot. I hope this circle will provide you the same pleasure that it has provided me.And just because you don't see yourself doesn't mean you're not in my circle. Like I said, there's a 500 person sharing limit. Still, if there's any doubt, you can ask to be added. I'm more than happy to.Much writerly love and salud,MattP.S. Share this circle and share the love with all of these fantastic people. #writers #writing #writersgroup #sharedcircles #sharedpubliccircles #readers #readerscircle #books #ebooks #indieauthors2012-04-27 21:12:48500506

Mike Elgan838,797First League graduate: +Tony Hawk!The purpose of my League of Extraordinary Circle Friends circle is to put you in touch with great people to circle, but people who have circle counts far below what they should be. My rule is that once a League member reaches the 100k-circles level, I take them out of the shared circle. People with that many followers will be easily discovered without being in my League circle. When I first circled Tony just a few short weeks ago, he had only a few thousand followers. But as he always does on a skateboard, he's soaring to new heights on Google+ at very high speeds. ; ) Congratulations, Tony! You're my first League "graduate"!The next graduate will probably be +Chris Brogan.(Note that those of you who have circled the League will continue to have Tony in your circles. I will continue to keep him circled as well, but in a non-shared circle.)* * *2012-03-13 00:40:102830453

Gideon Rosenblatt2,844Writer's CircleThis circle is made up of people who write as a core part of what they do. It includes book authors and a lot of bloggers. I started this circle a few weeks back as a way to share posts aimed at helping those who write with little tips and tricks I pick up along the way (mostly from others). I'm sure I'm missing people off this list even among my own circles. I had to put it together based on what I already knew about someone and by looking at people's profiles, which no doubt varied in thoroughness over time, so please excuse me if I missed that writing is an important part of what you do - and let me know if it is! Go writers! ... ... We couldn't read without you!2012-02-01 14:45:1999903151
Mike Elgan477,248Pleep o' the Week: Mignon Fogarty!Each week I find one super awesome person to add to my shared circle of super awesome people. Click "Add circle" inside the circle below to circle all my recommendations (highly recommended!). I limit my recommendations to people circled by fewer than 100k people. Once people reach 100k, I remove them from my recommendations -- not because I don't recommend them, but because they no longer need my weekly promotion. If you've added this circle in the past, go ahead and add it again. Google+ will ignore the people you've already got and add only the new ones. Where do I find these people? I sift through the profiles of people who make brilliant comments on my posts -- especially those who + my name. So if you want to be recommend by me every week until you're circled by 100k, here's how: 1. Have an awesome stream2. Comment on my posts3. + my name to draw my attention to your comments. * * * This week's Pleep o' the Week is +Mignon Fogarty, otherwise known as the notorious "Grammar Girl." I've been a huge fan of her awesome podcast for at least five years. She educates people about grammar and style and how to write both better and correctly. That's why I'm thrilled to discover that she's an active and prolific Google+ user!Fewer than 2,700 circles? Not on my watch! Everybody circle Grammar Girl Mignon Fogarty!* * * I also do a streaming hangout each week Thursdays at 9am Pacific with some of the greatest people in specific subject areas. The ultimate product of this process is a shared circle. So here are my "Flying Circles" for you to circle, if you're interested in these topics: Hangout Innovatorshttps://plus.google.com/113117251731252114390/posts/GRFqDy6neqSOpinionated CES Attendeeshttps://plus.google.com/113117251731252114390/posts/7SvhxQYtwr4Orbit High School Facultyhttps://plus.google.com/113117251731252114390/posts/1Uc6yWd6HiE2012-01-23 21:34:132328322

Sometimes you know a word has two forms, but you're not sure which one is appropriate to use in the situation at hand. This happens a lot with verbs, where past-tense forms can compete for acceptance and supremacy with language users. From our friends at +Vocabulary.com, here are 10 verbs whose past tense can be confusing, along with some tidbits about their history and related linguistic phenomena.

When something is named after a person or a place or a company, we call that name an eponym. Eponyms are everywhere — in science, medicine, the arts. This list from our friends at Vocabulary.com focuses on words that are historically eponyms but are so common that their history has been obscured.
