I had a very late night, and a very early morning, so I’ll make this one short and sweet, albeit a little bit late.
If the word “blog” is a portmanteau for “web log” -and it is, by the way- then shouldn’t it follow the same rules of usage?
For example, if someone says “I wrote a blog about that just yesterday,” uh… no you didn’t. The ‘blog’ would be your full body of work, the recurring record of whatever it is you’re writing about. Just like a ship’s log- with multiple entries over time.
What this person probably means to say is that they wrote a blog entry , a blog post , or that they blogged a particular subject on their web log. Right? Right? Come on, I can’t be the only one this bugs…
