It's really a culmination of web log, which turned into blog. And truthfully, I hate that word. It sounds lazy, or boggy, or blah ... like you have something stuck in your mouth while trying to say log. I don't know. It's such an uneloquent word for the world of writing. And yet, is blogging eloquent?
Depends. Depends on what you're trying to get across, say, tell, brag, express, journal ... wait did I say journal? Yes! Journaling. That's what a lot of people use blogging for: a way to get our feelings across.
I'm not that into blogging so as to replace my journal with a blog. I don't wear my heart on my sleeve. I'd rather tell you something informative, so you'll return here, next week, to get another tidbit of information. To help you write better; to be better. Whatever. That's my thing. Not to tell you how I hated today.
I suppose blogging is all things to all people, and because of that diversity, we can be okay. Some bloggers will say too much, others not enough. Some can be eloquent, or poetic, and others as simple as a journal entry or text message. There's no right or wrong way to blog either.
So, blog away fellow bloggers! And read away, fellow readers! And come back tomorrow where I write about a word that starts with the letter C. Let's just say, it has something to do with a black substance that some refer to as black gold, it's hot, or cold, with a jolt of a heart-rate inducing drug, or not, you can drink it or have it in ice cream. You get the idea ... I think.
And I need to go get some of that word right now.
