I finished this one in four. It’s my first finish in four in two days. The last time I got a four was Monday, April 24.
Welcome back to the Wordle blog! Today’s puzzle word was BLEND, and I managed to solve it in just four guesses. Let me tell you all about it!
My first guess was GRIFT, but unfortunately, it didn’t have any letters in common with the answer. My second guess was BLOWN, and I was happy to see that the letters B and L were in the right places. However, the letter N was in the wrong place.
For my third guess, I tried BLAND. I was pleased to see that the letters B, L, N, and D were all in the right places. At this point, I knew that the word started with BL and ended with ND. But what could be the vowel in the middle?
I took a moment to consider my options before making my fourth and final guess: BLEND. And to my relief, it turned out to be the correct answer.
I couldn’t help feeling a bit annoyed, though, that the word was just one vowel different from my previous guess. If only I had guessed BLEND on my third try, I could have solved the puzzle in just three guesses! But that’s how it goes with Wordle – sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes you don’t.
That’s it for today’s Wordle blog post. I hope you enjoyed reading about my solving process, and I’ll see you again tomorrow with a new puzzle word to tackle!
