How TheFreeDictionary could prove helpful in Blogging ?

Collection of Dictionaries

Most important aspect of the lot. TheFreeDictionary covers the entire Dictionary & Thesaurus. It’s main source is the Houghton Mifflin’s premier dictionary, the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition. You may trust the Oxford, but in America people trust the Houghton Mifflin’s Premier Dictionary. Here is a list of things which TheFreeDictionary covers,

  • Dictionary/Thesaurus
  • Medical Dictionary
  • Legal Dictionary
  • Financial Dictionary

Games & Quizzes

Most of you leave the end pages of a paper unread. It normally contains word games, crosswords, quotes, etc. A Similar collection of Games & Quizzes is presented by TheFreeDictionary. You can play around with the Hangman game, Word of the Day, Spell Bee (which asks you to spell out a word to which a description is printed over there), Quote of the Day, etc.

Easily Customizable homepage

It’s just like an iGoogle homepage, where you can shift the tabs with ease. You can add external RSS Feeds as tabs. On the left side a tab names ‘Add/Restore Content’ is there. Using that you can add the predefined tabs with just a single click.

Using TheFreeDictionary as a reference you could blog freely & more importantly with ease!
