Blog Rhymes With Slog

Ugh. i am still bothered by the ugliness of the word BLOG. As i said before, it sounds like an intestinal ailment.

(My character, Robin, says, "If my mind works like a computer, it must have a blurt, a blog, a worm, a fatal flaw...")

I am officially proposing a new term for blogs that sounds nicer: I-aries (short for internet-diaries.)

(And the "I" also stands for I who am writing it.)

Iaries, reminiscent of a place where birds live, or some wonderful island, like the canaries. (maybe they are wonderful, i have never been...)

I love your mind your head seems to have so many things floating about in there. You and I am sure would have a wonderful conversation but anybody listening would wonder what it was all about. I like your idea not going to attempt to better it.

I-aries is far better than blog. I totally agree. I tell people that I blog and they don't even ask what it is because it sounds so ... 'nothing'. I just tell myself if someone is so closed minded towards something new, because they have no imagination and preconcieved thoughts towards a word then thank god they don't blog. Don't want to mix with those sorts. Ha!

HA! i guess we r stuck with it, though, because trying to explain i-aries is even harder!
