My name is James, Hello and welcome to The Village Idiom.

This is my first experience owning a website. My goal is to create the largest comprehensive dictionary of proverbs and idioms on the web. As well as take you with me on an adventure through history and a journey creating a successful presence in the blog-sphere!

Whether it be a proverb: the pen is mightier than the sword, a colloquialism: pass the buck, slang: YOLO!, adage, aphorism or jargon. Hopefully we can walk away understanding the history of our world just a little better. Our culture is always evolving, moving away from old problems and towards new solutions. There lies artifacts that remain in our everyday conversations that can act as a snapshot to some long ago moments in time. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but certain words can speak volumes. As you explore my blog I hope to inspire at least a few to dig deeper into some aspects of the world around you that up until now you were perfectly satisfied just skimming the surface. You never know what’s right beyond your grasp.

My goal for The Village Idiom is to release weekly articles each exploring the depths of a popular idiom, Then over time turning this into a library of idioms, a one-stop shop if you will.

I’m more than happy to take feedback and research more to go back and forth editing and updating articles as needed to make this the best home for idioms there is!

Well that’s all for now! See you on the open range, time for me to break a leg! The sky is the limit!

See later alligator! In a while crocodile! Don’t let the bedbugs bit… (you get the point)
