I love definitions. So in my attempt to unravel this new communication beast “The Blog”, I tried looking it up in my trusty, but inappropriately named – The New Collins Concise English Dictionary. Published in 1987 the aforementioned tome unsurprisingly did not contain a reference to Blogging! A case in point. I guess I need to get on-board. I turn to the free on line dictionary, Oxford Dictionaries. It said;
noun - a personal website or web page on which an individual records opinions, links to other sites, etc. on a regular basis.
verb - (blogs, blogging, blogged) - add new material to or regularly update a blog: it's about a week since I last blogged.
A meandering, blatantly uninteresting online diary that gives the author the illusion that people are interested in their stupid, pathetic life. Consists of such riveting entries as "homework sucks" and "I slept until noon today."
