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 “Follow” anywhere WTF?
BUT I did come this great list that I just had to share.
Blogstipation – writer’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 one’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 – 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?
What blog words/terms/slang do YOU use?
