Bloggerisms

Being new to blogging, we've found ourselves doodlin' around with words, i.e. using 'blogese'. We're sure we're not the first to think of these but just for fun, here's a little list in no particular order: (Feel free to add your own!)


The Blogosphere: The blog universe.
blogsnogging: Commenting in glowing tones (we all do it!) on another’s post.
oblogatory: The sense of being compelled to comment on a blog.
oblogations: Feeling responsible for and often overwhelmed by the need to reply to multiple blogsnogs on one’s own posts.
blogcrastination: Spending too much time blogging or thinking about blogging and avoiding work or other responsibilities like taking care of one’s family.
blogpod: One’s circle of frequently visited blogs whose creators also visit your blog.
blogjam: So much activity on blogger that you can't post.
blogslogging: Wading through a blogjam in order to put up a post.
blognod: Giving someone else’s blog recognition on your own blog.
blogfog: Empty headed. Nothing to post.
pinching off a blog: The act of finishing a post.
bloggerisms: What these phrases are.

Wow, you guys are going to keep Webster's busy with all these new fangled words! Clever and funny..."pinching off a blog"... priceless!

BLOGWAY : The route by which one uses to check their favorite blog links.

BLOGDOM – alternative for blog universe.

BLOGOLOGIST – a physician who treats people with blogging dependancies.

BLOGEOLOGY – the theory of BLOG

BLOGISTICIANS - Bloggers who track their hit counters.

That's all I can think of right now.

Dennis,

hah! Blogasm! That's a good one.

Uli,

Is there a twelve step programme for us blogaholics?

Blog Universe said...

I beg to differ but there is no substitute for Blog Universe!!!

the doodlers said...

OK, we'd never argue with anyone with the word 'universe' in their name...

Smook said...

no disrespect intended.....

the doodlers said...

Hey Mike- is Blog Universe your new(other) blog?

Smook said...

Ah, no. I meant to say, "no disrepect intended" to Blog Universe.

the doodlers said...

definately no disrespect... Sarcasm on blog comments. Is there a word for it??

Smook said...

blogcastic?

the doodlers said...

Oh- here's one more, used in a sentence:

'Blogjog': a quick look around one's favourite blogs

As in "each morning I blogjog my blogpod."

Smook said...

Blogmeister-someone who enlists others to start a blog of their own.

the doodlers said...

aaah, that would make you a Blogmeister supreme, Mike!!

the doodlers said...

Was speaking with Jason Groh today and he mentioned the word 'blurking' as in: lurking around peoples blogs without commenting... So there ya go- another one.
