Being B•hū•UR

My first blog post! Being B•hū•UR…

I thought about the name, and made the label, website, and now… Oh wow, it is so hard to write B•hū•UR correctly. lol

First of all… how do you call that • ? 

A center dot!!! ?????

  lol no, that was how I called it… but the official name of • is INTERPUNCT

OK so we got • out of the way… lol but… how do we type •? The answer is Option 8 ! on Apple.

Alright!

then ū… lol. This I had to bother my website design teacher (can you believe I tried to learn coding CSS, HTML, etc?..) Mr. Williams. He really helped me to make my B•hū•UR exist in the digital world. lol

That horizontal bar on top of u is called Macron. not Macaron, it is a Macron.

From WIKI:

macron (/ˈmækrɒn, ˈmeɪ-/) is a diacritical mark: it is a straight bar (¯) placed above a letter, usually a vowel. Its name derives from Greek μακρόν (makrón), meaning ‘long’, since it was originally used to mark long or heavy syllables in Greco-Roman metrics. It now more often marks a long vowel. In the International Phonetic Alphabet, the macron is used to indicate a mid-tone; the sign for a long vowel is instead a modified triangular colon

A macron can be type on a mac with option a  then u or any other letter you want to put the macron over. so in this case option a then u.if I ever need to spell my B•hū•UR it will sound like this…

Capital B, interpunct, small h macron small u  interpunct, capital U, capital R …

OMG already not so  easy to B.hū•UR…  but I love it. lol
