When one clicks on a hash tag you are taken to a web page that tracks the history of its usage on twitter.

As I am beginning to get more active on twitter, on a lark, this morning, I decided to plug some quality blogger friends of mine. However I had one problem....today wasn't Friday.

And, so #WeccommendWedn was born.

Besides, who's gonna argue with Elmer Fudd?
