Web logs, weblogs, weblo(w)gs we blogs, but not Web blogs

The astute among you will notice that the "Blogging" category of TealArt has been moved under the "everyone has a story," (the dandy new Narrative Studies section of TealArt, on the premise that blogs, at least as Chris and I are likely to write about them, are a narrative device, and should be included this discussion.

As I was writing a post about this blog, I noticed that the author referred to "web blogs," which is testament to the fact that blog is indeed a word in it's own right, but is in fact a combination of words which should never occur. Weblogs are logs, journals, which are made special/unique by a) the fact that they exist online and more technically, b) the software used to maintain them (this is a defining feature, and that's why I feel it's relevant to talk about WordPress upgrades on this site.)

Just saying!
