30 Blogging & Writing Acronyms #writers #bloggers




I am currently loving the language of acronyms. If honest I don’t know which I like more – the language of hashtags or the language of acronyms. I can converse freely in both.

  1. Loved this. As usual, you have created something brilliant! 11 is hilarious, I am really happy to have found me some awesome BFF, and an SWF who has encouraged me to keep creating those EFM’s. I am looking forward to 19 and 21-23 😉

  2. Since I’ve started beauty blogging, I’ve have to get used to some more acronyms. There’s not a ton, but one I see often is MLBB. When I first saw it, I was like: whaaat? haha! It’s My Lips Bu Better which refers to shades of lipstick. I was so confused at first!

  3. Thanks for sharing these. My favorite is PAP. Here’s one I like to use, JWI (Just Write It). I often have people tell me they want to write a book, but can’t find the motivation. This is my reply.

      1. Yes, you can.

        Apparently my feed is on some kind of weird delay. I DO read your posts, but nine times out of ten, via Twitter. Traffic is traffic my dear.

      2. People are lucky I am able to read anything these days. A friend recently told me she deleted her blog, and I was shocked. It did explain the lack of updates, but still… I have no idea when I became so daft!
