Oh and by the way

April 29, 2010

While I am on the subject of blogs (and yes, you need to read the next entry down to get my reference):

it makes me insanely crazy when people, especially bloggers, don’t get the terminology right, and they often do not:

A blog is the website.

A blog post is the entry.

One blog. Many blog posts.

Every entry is not a blog. The blog is the macro-site.

Blog is short for “weblog.” Think of a log book with many entries.

If you’re gonna do it, at least know what it is.

I know, I know, precision in vocabulary is so old school, what with the democratic nature of the web and all.

So shoot me.
