Calling A Blog A Blog

Alex Singleton attempts to explain feeds in RSS – why and how on Brave soul.

For some reason, the two biggest ideas I struggle to communicate to journalists who start blogging are what RSS feeds are, and what “blog” means. For some reason, most of them think that a blog is what most of us would call a post, and so they end up creating horrible words like “blogsite” to describe what everyone else calls a blog.

“Hey, I loved the magazine you wrote for your magazinepublication.”
