Blog

Blog is short for web log, and it’s basically an online journal or discussion written by an individual or a group. A blog can be a noun or a verb. This site is a blog. This post is a blog. You’re reading a blog written by a blogger about blogs and blogging right now. I personally don’t like the term. I prefer to think of myself as a writer, not a blogger. I want my posts to be considered articles, not blogs. I feel that blog demeans what I have to say. It cheapens it. It’s less likely to be taken seriously. You can quote articles to win arguments, but you can’t refer to blogs to win a bet. I don’t like the term, but I have to accept it because that’s what I do and that’s what it is. I’ll admit that I’m a blogger because I blog on my blog if you admit that I’m a writer because I have to write the blog that I blog on my blog.

Bloggers Who Don’t Know How to Write

We use words to communicate and that’s a powerful thing. In the old days you would write a letter to a friend, or you might jot things down in a journal. These days everybody just spews out the words in their heads onto the internet. Some people do it on Facebook, some people do it on Twitter, and some people create a blog. There is an ever-increasing number of bloggers who don’t know how to write. If you don’t know the difference between your and you’re, or if you don’t care, then you have no business blogging. A writer has a responsibility to know which words he is using and if they’re the right ones. I’m a blogger myself, and I blog more than most people. I know that that people make mistakes, accidents happen and everyone makes typos. But consistency is key, and if you’re constantly using the wrong words or misusing apostrophes, you need to stop what you’re doing, go back to second grade, find Mrs. Humphries, and ask her where you went wrong in life. How can you justify sharing your thoughts if you can’t even translate them correctly? I know it’s casual, but you still look stupid.
