“Making Heads or Tails of Idioms” was originally an email newsletter developed in February 2010. Prior to that, the newsletter was known under a few different names: “Rema’s Summer of Idioms!”, “Rema’s ‘It’s not Summer Anymore’, Idioms!” and “Rema’s ‘I grew up in this country and still don’t know the Idioms!'” In Fall 2018, Rema shortened the domain name to make it easier to find and HOTidioms.com was born!
More Background: Rema’s passion to look up idioms stemmed from her first real job out of college in Summer 2003. Turns out, business people really like to use idioms in day-to-day language…. and it turns out, she don’t know idioms… at all. So she started looking up the meanings and origins and began to share them with friends (first newsletter subscriber count: 3). It caught on, friends began referring friends, and Rema received feedback that her email was cool enough to be a blog. It was also mentioned in Rachel Bertsche’s “MWF Seeking BFF” in both blog and book format as Rachel goes on to meet Jordan (me!).

About the author:
Rema grew up in the beautiful state of Michigan where she currently resides. She enjoys quality time with family (including her baby girl!) and friends and rooting for Michigan football. Writing has never been one of Rema’s passions… therefore, there is a bit of copy/paste from Wikipedia from time to time (but it’s always sourced).
