The Oxford Year of the Selfie!

Did you know that the Oxford Dictionaries have named “selfie” the word of the year? I couldn’t believe it last week when Phil told me. So I was out this weekend taking some photos of autumn and this happened. Actually the first one I took was completely by accident I was trying to get as far away from the trees as possible. Then I took this one.

Why on earth was selfie named word of the year? because of a 17,000% increase in use in the last year. That’s mind boggling stuff. You can read the BBC article over here.
