One Man & His Blog

We Blog. And weblog posts.

This is a post or entry on a blog. This is not the latest blog on a blogsite. I am the blogger. If you leave a comment below, you are the commenter. Leaving comments on a post does not make you a blogger…

Now, you’ve probably had one of these reactions:

  • Huh? I though this was a blog. I wrote a blog the other day.
  • Yes! Carry on fighting the good fight!
  • Meh. Too late. Semantic drift has won.

I vacillate wildly between the last two, until I have to run a course or strategy session for a group of people here, and find the word “blog” causes huge confusion. And, with that in mind, I’d just like to cheer on Meg Pickard who has updated and reposted her Blog vrs Blogpost: a note on terminology. And by “cheer on”, I mean “link to”. Because she is right. And quite witty, too.
