I find it interesting that some of the hits on my blog are coming from people doing a search for the meaning of the word "smidgen". So, as a public service, I'll give a go at an explanation.
A smidgen is just a little of something. Kind of like "a tad-bit" in Texan-speak (i.e., "I'm just a tad-bit tired today."). My blog title refers to "a smidgen of this and a pinch of that" as in a recipe...a smidgen, a pinch, or a dash would probably all be about the same amount.
Since I cover lots of different topics on my blog, I figured it was an appropriate title.
So, there you have it. Just a smidgen of vocabulary for ya.
