Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti

New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.
Happy New Year

New Word - Clicktivism

Clicktivism is a play on the word activism. It describes people who use the internet and social media to campaign a cause.

Clicktivists are the people who do the clicking.

Are you a clicktivist?

    I sometimes wonder whether clicktivism really works. It replaces paper petitions that might not get circulated quite as widely. The internet can be a powerful medium nowadays. I click if it's something I feel strongly about.

    We were talking about using ribbons to raise awareness of issues today. Some of them can be very confusing.

    I'm not sure if I've ever worn a ribbon. Is it a pink one that stands for breast cancer?
