When is a blog not a blog?

when it’s a post. Tom beat me to writing about this. After reading a couple of papers* about the ‘One Day In History‘ initiative, I noticed the trend to use the word ‘blog’ as meaning a single posting/entry onto a website which is also known as a blog. This mistake is not new, I’ve noticed it being used in conversation with people who do not blog but have picked up the meaning from media. My guess is this usage is becoming too common and we are stuck with it. Prepare to be annoyed forever.

*I do like the Telegraph’s word ‘blog-clog’; it’s the first time I’ve seen it, despite it seeming to have a longish history .
