The magic of words -- that's what A.Word.A.Day (AWAD) is all about.
In 1994, a graduate student named Anu Garg sent out his first emailed "A Word A Day" to a little over one hundred people. In March of that year, Anu registered http://wordsmith.org as an internet domain name. From that early beginning on the Web to a position in which he now emails his "A Word A Day" to over 600,000 individuals worldwide, you could say that Anu Garg had a very good idea.
Having received A Word A Day, five days a week for many years, I can vouch for its value. Whether it is to clarify the meaning of a word you were not sure of or to introduce you to a word that you have never heard before, a minute or two looking at my AWAD email is always refreshing.
