A very good day to the blogging world! Our impetuously named ragtag community is inching towards its centenary prompt.
Our word for today is “sobriquet” (/ˈsoʊbrɪkeɪ/ SOH-bri-kay) – a nickname, sometimes assumed, but often given by another. Distinct from a pseudonym, it usually is a familiar name used in place of a real name without the need of explanation, often becoming more familiar than the original name.
What comes to your mind when you hear or think of a sobriquet? Any interesting anecdotes to share of your own? Tell us a story or compose a poem; show us your interpretation of the prompt in words or pictures.
You know the rules. Use “ragtag daily prompt” , “RDP” , and “sobriquet” as tags. Add “photo” if you’re sharing a picture, as specific tags make your posts more accessible to other bloggers. Pingback your posts to this page or copy-paste your links in the comment thread here. And while you’re around, browse through what your fellow bloggers have come up with using the day’s prompt.
Feel free to read, write, click, share. We love to hear and see it all!
