An Experiment on the Creative Liberties of the Blog

Hypothesis: Given that our stipulations for the blogs are to post twice weekly and fill the blog with “varied content”, and given that we are allowed to select blog content at our liberty, if we fill our blog posts with excerpts from the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, we will still receive full credit.

Alt. Hypothesis: Regurgitating strings of etymological roots verbatim will still produce a better blog than some of the others that I have seen.

Methods: We will fill our minimum requisite blog post word counts with words extracted directly from Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, proceeding in alphabetical order through the sections.

Results: [see below]

Analysis: Though an effective strategy, this methodology is likely to portray the experimenter as a pompous ass, albeit one who has discovered an efficient and effective way of merging his love of words with his blog deadlines.
