TermWiki Glossary Widget

I wanted to upload a glossary on my blog and I was looking for a nice way to create an appealing, social, and re-usable glossary on my website.. Couldn't find anything so fancy!

Glossaries on websites are usually in the form of simple text. The only thing a user can do is just reading them, which is ok but, I wanted more! 

I thus asked the TermWiki team if there was any solution to create a glossary and embed it on my website or blog. They replied that there wasn't any so far but that they were curious to know more what I exactly wanted. So I sent them my idea with a couple of layouts and they told me that they were willing to develop it!
So this my dream glossary: a Glossary Widget where, apart from checking terms and definitions, I can also share my terms on social networks and gather comments and feedback ( on their platform!)

More in details, TermWiki Widget:
  • allows websites to easily embed subject-specific terminology content on their own pages;
  • directly embeds glossaries relevant to your website content right from TermWiki’s vast database of existing terms and professionally developed definitions;
  • lets visitors obtain key information about important terms without having to visit a separate reference site;
  • and last but not least, it raises your website visibility and SEO by including search keywords right on your pages.


  1. What a great tool - thanks @WordLo! Look forward to seeing how I can integrate it onto one of my sites...

    1. Simply open an account on TermWiki, upload your glossary, go to the widget page, choose you preferred size and color, copy the HTML code and paste it on your blog/website!

  2. nice post, tanti benefici, so many benefits of having a Glossary Widget, Italian translation

Little platoons

There's no reference to Hegel in the Tory manifesto, but there is an allusion to one of the founding fathers of conservative thought, Edmund Burke. The "institutional building blocks of the Big Society", the document reads, "[are] the 'little platoons' of civil society". “Little platoons" is a phrase that occurs in Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790), the classic expression of conservative scepticism about large-scale attempts to transform society in the image of abstract ideals. The Tories today use it to refer to the local associations that would go to form a "broad culture of responsibility, mutuality and obligation". The problem is that, for Burke, little platoons weren't groups that you volunteer to join; they were the "social subdivisions" into which you are born - the kind of traditionalism you would have thought Cameron's rebranded "progressive" Conservatives would want to avoid.

Football or soccer, which came first?

With the World Cup underway in Brazil, a lot of people are questioning if we should refer to the "global round-ball game" as "soccer" or "football"? This is visible from the queries of the readers that access my blog. The most visited post ever is indeed “ Differenza tra football e soccer ” and since we are in the World Cup craze I think this topic is worth a post. According to a paper published in May by the University of Michigan and written by the sport economist Stefan Szymanski, "soccer" is a not a semantically bizarre American invention but a British import. Soccer comes from "association football" and the term was used in the UK to distinguish it from rugby football. In countries with other forms of football (USA, Australia) soccer became more generic, basically a synonym for 'football' in the international sense, to distinguish it from their domestic game. If the word "soccer" originated in Eng
