A glossary of blogging terms:


Am I the only one to hate the term "blog"? It just doesn't sound right. I think of a mix of a "log" and "blob". So I get this mental image of a dead tree covered in slime when I hear the word "blog".

I think we need to come up with a replacement term. One that sounds fitting for peoples logorheaic tendencies in the virtual space.

Personally, I'm leaning toward the term "espew". Like email, but pwoplw spewing forth random brain farts online. I've often thought of online journalling pages and forums as blank walls which people tag with varying qualities of virtual grafitti, from the loser tags like, "U SUXOR!!1!!1!" to murals of epic scope and beauty. Maybe a term that reflects that quality.

Either way, "blog" sucks.

Let's hear your ideas.
