for a strong, fast pick-me-up
Do you love when someone makes up new words?
You may have heard of the new word spellfie – to describe selfies created by those “crazy funsters” at a recent big spelling bee in the US. Link at the end of this post.
I’m a bit of a word nerd – s0 I love this sort of fun word creation. I love playful puns and creativity.
I imagine someone probably just made the association between selfie and spelling to create the expression and made a quip – calling it a: Spellfie.
The new word certainly broadened the exposure of the Spelling Bee.
Also, I’d heard of an invention that was a kickstarter project to create a cool-looking remote control pole that held cell phones at a distance – for taking selfies.
It was called a Cellfie.
I wonder what other new words can be created based on “selfie” rhymes to describe different types of selfies.
Selfies in unpleasant smelly environments – the Smell-fie.
Selfies in rich, opulent environments with lots of bling – the Wealth-fie
Selfies where you look like you are having a really bad time. You look like you are suffering and going through some sort of hell – a Hell-fie.
If you have any creations – please share in the comments section below.

These days, lots of people and organisations need help with how to COPE with too much work, too much information, too many meetings, delivering difficult news, business writing, effective e-mail, e-mail overload, cross-cultural communication etc. I like to help people COPE.
