From Pronounced Weh - pah, a word of jubilation that is uttered by mainly Hispanics, especially within the Puerto Rican community. It normally is yelled at high volumes in a nasal manner, especially after something that is celebrated. ...[M]eans, "All right! Good job! Congratulations! Yeah!"

PLEASE MAKE NOTE: This week, I'm in Miami for Hispanicize 2012, an annual event for Latino trendsetters and newsmakers in social media, marketing, entertainment and innovation. And even though it is the norm for me to celebrate Latin culture on a regular basis, it's going to be "all things Latino" on® this week with [unsponsored] shout outs to Hispanicize sponsors and blog posts that started with OBG®'s Multicultural Monday and then with OBG®'s Travel Tuesday, and today with OBG®'s Word of the Week! Enjoy!

Forgive me for my enthusiasm (well, not really), but one of the best things about being at Hispanicize this week is that I get to say ¡Wepa! as much as I want to without people looking at me like I'm crazy.  *Laughing with my mouth open wide*  I'm already having WAY too. much. fun.  ¡Wepa!

OBG®'s Word of the Week Shout Out to Hispancize and a few of its sponsors...

OBG®'s Word of the Week (WOW!) post is a mini-homage to my mom who taught me new words by using flashcards at the dinner table and made mealtime entertaining. And while you might not necessarily learn a new word today, the idea - as always - is to have a little fun! Word.

You are one of those people that you meet and you know you have a friend. I love that picture because it reflected all the happiness to meet each other again in this awesome word of blogging.
