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 01:00:002G+

Mike Elgan3,437,756Behold! The new League of Extraordinary Circle Friends!My League of Extraordinary Circle Friends is my hand-picked group of super charming super-sharers! I want you to do three things: 1. Click the "Add people" button below and circle this group (especially if you've circle this group previously -- doing this will update the group without duplicates). 2. Share this post with all your circles. 3. Share this post with people who are looking for awesome people to circle on G+. I've added four new people to the League.+Amira Elgan! Yes: She's my wife. And I've been trying to avoid adding her for a year. But her stream is perfect for the League so I've added her. +Noble Ackerson is a super nice and interesting guy, a super nerd and consummate glasshole -- he uses Google Glass to great effect to bring you into his world. In fact, the only bigger glasshole I know is... +Cecilia Abadie and Noble work at the same company, and Ceclia is another Glass user with a wonderful Google+ stream. +Andreas Katifes gives you a window into Greek scenes and Greek food that's so compelling you might accidentally quit your job and move to Greece. Welcome to the League, everyone! 2014-07-27 23:39:2625111341CC G+

Jason Darrell20,419A Circle of Bloggers -|- FYIOver time, this circle has fluctuated in populace and purpose. It's simply called "Blogger" - at one point or another, I've read a blog, liked what I've seen and added the author thus.There will be some noticeable absences. I have Pro Copywriters, G+ on Steroids and Google Awesome circles, too. If you're not in here, blog and I engage regularly, you're in one of those.However, being in this circle doesn't preclude you from being in those others. I know several people here I have in multiple circles.This isn't a 'shared circle' as in: add your name, plus 1 it and share it.These peops have been hand-picked by me over (almost) 3 years. And, according to Circloscope, all have posted content within the last 6 weeks (unless they're exceptionally talented and they warrant inclusion due to the magnitude of their blogging skills, in which case I've left them in).Lastly, if you're included and have never posted content in your life, accept my apologies and drop me a note to be removed.2014-07-11 11:43:174091005CC G+

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 21:12:48500506CC G+

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 00:40:102830453CC G+

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 14:45:1999903151CC G+

British dialect coach Andrew Jack takes you on an amazing tour of the different accents you can hear on the British Isles. At first I was surprised by how many different sounds and pronunciations there are in such a small region, but I also recognized many of them from TV shows and movies I've seen. I watched it over and over and didn't want to stop!
