Check this out: Scott of It’s a Nou Day! just posted an awesome idea.
He’s added AnswerTips to his blog and is now adding a word of the day to the bottom of his posts. If his readers want to see the meaning, they’ve got to double-click. Instead of being taken to a new page, they get a small bubble with the definition; when they are done reading, they just close it.
Everybody wins; Scott and his readers learn something new and nobody has to leave his site.
Today’s word for Scott is cantankerous. Hmm… A bit of a ‘disagreeable’ word for such a lovely idea, but we’ll take it! (Psst… double-click to find out what it means.)
And, of course, what better to title the idea but Nou Word of the Day…
By the way, no.stupid.answers is AnswerTips-enabled, too, so feel free to double-click anywhere and get a pop-up definition.
