I was recently trying to find an on-line list of Blog Terminology (cuz we DO speaketh our own lingo dontchaknow) for a blogging class I’m teaching.
It amazed me how some the terminology I came across wasn’t exactly “official” blog lingo, but creative and hilarious madness from the minds of fellow bloggers. It was too funny NOT to share.
