According to the popular and unpopular press this morning, the unpopular U.S. President is increasingly popular with a segment of the populace.
According to my “likes” on WordPress, I’m becoming less popular with the blogging populace.
How important is popular?
Here’s a popular definition of “popular”:
1. liked, admired, or enjoyed by many people or by a particular person or group.
“she was one of the most popular girls in the school”
synonyms: well liked, favored, sought-after, in demand, desired, wanted;
2. (of cultural activities or products) intended for or suited to the taste, understanding, or means of the general public rather than specialists or intellectuals.
“the popular press”
synonyms: nonspecialist, nontechnical, amateur, lay person’s, general, middle-of-the-road
Which of my photos from yesterday will be most popular with my readers?
Our newly cleaned couch and the refinished dining room table are very popular with the cats. I’m hoping that tolerance (discussed in yesterday’s therapy group) becomes more popular with the populace.
Popular thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.
