A "blog" and a "blog post" are not the same thing

April 21, 2007

At some point in the last few months, the word "blog" has come to mean not only the weblog itself, but also its constituent entries. I can't be the only one out there who hates it when someone says something like, "She wrote a blog where she said…," or, "I wrote a blog on that." It makes my skin crawl. I'll concede that "weblog" has succumb to just "blog" in the popular vernacular (though I still maintain use of the former whenever possible), but I just can't let this "blog post == blog" thing go.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to temper my self-righteous, curmudgeony sensibilities with some real-world news and remind myself that none of this really matters anyway.
