There’s Only One Place to Find a Blog

The other day, I heard somebody talk about “a blog that is online.”

That got me thinking. Can a blog be anywhere else?

Of course, the answer is no. Blog is short for web log, and last time I checked, the World Wide Web is online.

To be fair, the speaker also admitted that she sometimes descends into “Valley-speak” (go back and listen to “Valley Girl” by Frank and Moon Zappa if you don’t understand). Also, she’s a hair stylist and, when referring to mixing oils into the hair, said, “I’ll cocktail the oil.”

Last I checked, cocktail is not a verb.


Until next time! Use the right words!
