One of my most hated words: blog
I just saw Merriam-Webster's top words of 2004
, ranked by the number of times users looked up the word.
#1 is something that you are looking at right now: Blog.
I hate "blog." It is an ugly, clunky word. You know, people used to post personal and/or irrelevant thoughts, accompanied by links, on the Internet in the way-back. They were called home pages, or personal Web sites. I suppose those terms aren't as pithy. Still, I'd defenestrate
blog, if I could.
Other noteworthy words in the top 10: For mrrranda: cicada. For actionchrist: peloton.
