No. It’s not a misspelling. But it started out that way.

As the more spelling-inclined astute readers would have realized by now, there’s a spelling mistake in the blog title/address. Initially, I had made a spelling mistake while trying to spell ‘modicum’ (Defined by the Merriam-Webster online dictionary as: a small portion, or a limited quantity). But just for fun, I googled the word and a website,, actually provided a definition for this accidental spelling mistake.

According to the website, mediocum may be defined as originating “from mediocre + modicum and it means such a small amount of something that it is not even a modicum of something”.

I had originally envisaged this blog as being a little corner in which I could contemplate books, movies, food and occasionally politics, alongside with my course requirements for Interative Multimedia Journalism…

… But hey, as evidenced by the title, why not have a little fun while doing it? =)
