Blogging Terminology – Franticmommy Style

I was recently trying to find an on-line list of Blog Terminology (cuz we DO speath our own lingo dontchaknow) for a blogging class I’m teaching. It amazed some the terminology I came across that is and ISN’T used in blogging.

And I am still amazed I didn’t come across the word and definition for “Followanywhere WTF?

BUT I did comeย this great list that I just had to share.

Blogstipation – writerโ€™s block for bloggers. Can’t think of what to blog about?

Blogathy – I do not want to post today and I do not care about it.

Blogopotamus – A long long blog post.

Blogorrhea – unusually high output of articles.

Bleg – To use oneโ€™s blog to beg for assistance etc.

Hitnosis – Refreshing your browser repeatedly to see if your hit counter or comments have increased

GAD – Google Adsense Disorder. Repeatedly checking your AdSense earnings. more

Blego – Blog+Ego. Measuring blogger worth

Blogroach – A commenter who rudely disagrees with posted content

Blogoholic – addicted to blogging.

Blogorific = blogtastic โ€“ something which a blogger says is terrific

Blogsit – maintaining a blog while the primary blogger is on leave

Blogvertising – Also called blogvert. Advertising on a blog.

Blurker – a blog reader not posting comments, just lurking around quietly.

Blogathon – update your website every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. Maybe collect sponsorships.


I’m for-sure am afflicted with the first four. Does that mean I need an intervention?

  1. Those are great. I hope you have an enthusiastic turn-out for your class. I don’t know any, but I’ll make one up blogervation – irritation with blogs and/or bloggers.

  2. Blurkers are so annoying! It is like being spied on! lol Please just comment! lol I use blah-blah-blogging for when I just ramble. lol

  3. Yes family members are notrious Blurkers. Which I have to keep in mind when I’m writing. I can’t talk too much smack about them since I don;t know who’s reading ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Blurker is a great word. And pretty much defines my family and friends. The people who comment are always bloggers! Hmmm…what slang do I use? Blogathon, Blogtastic, Blogology…

  5. Ha! This IS addictive! How about “Blump”. A blogger who is an inactive lump. Doesn’t really write anything, just reposts other people’s stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This is addictive!

    “Blogiopath” A blogger without a conscience.

  7. Awesome list! Here’s my contribution.

    A person who doesn’t even know what a blog is.

  8. LOL…. I am frequently guilty of Blogorrhea.

    I have also used blogolicious, blogitis,blogified,and I didnt see blogiversaryy in here (the anniversary of when you first started blogging)

    Oh and I really like blogworthy!

  9. “blomit” OMG! Thats freakin hilarious. The blog equivilent to verbal diarreah!

  10. Texan Mama coined the phrase “blomit”, basically where you vomit out your thoughts and feelings on your blog.

  11. Lol! I am definitely guilty of the blogopotamus post! I’ve used the word blurfing long before I actually started blogging. BLog sURFING. I just started using it naturally, but then someone looked it up & its actually in the Urban Dictionary! Hopped here from BF, SITS! :>

  12. I love this post! I wasn’t aware that there was blog terminology, however Ive used these (thinking I made them up – how disappointing to find out the truth!):

    Blog worthy

    I may have to link your post to my blog to educate other bloggers and readers! Thanks for posting this ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ann (visiting from SITS)

  13. I forgot one! How about “Blogworthy”. It’s like when your husband does a complete knucklehead move that you KNOW you have to write about. You look at him and say, “OMG, THAT was SO blogworthy” ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. I think that even things we thing are common like “follow” and “lurk” are foreign to non-bloggers. This is a great list.

  15. I love the list! I think my personal favorite is Blogroach, but it’s hard to decide!
