The Good: The deadline for The Raw Poetry Contest has been extended! Yes, people, you now have till 21st June 11:59 P.M. Indian Standard Time to submit your entries.

Now I don’t have any idea if this challenge has been ever created before by anybody, so I like to think I created it. My sincere apologies to the original creator in case they exist.
Anyway, enough talk. Down to business. The ‘Word of the Day Challenge’ is simple- the nominated bloggers have to post a new word every day for 30 days on their blog which is seldom used or few people know the meaning of. But there’s a catch- it’s in the rules down below. Before I acquaint you with the rules of the challenge, let’s look at the list of the bloggers I’ve decided to nominate-
