Blogging You might remember this rant about how the tv ads for Belle De Jour confused the terms 'blogs' and 'blog posts' (and the ensuing comments were accused me of misusing the words book and novel terminology -- good times). Now, in writing about the new House of Lords blog, The Guardian's Stephen Moss is at it in this piece from the Shortcuts section of today's G2.

Moss begins by using the term 'blog' as a label for both the (rather good it turns out) Lords of the Blogs and an individual post and then continues to describe a range of different posts by different peers as blogs throughout the rest of what otherwise would be a neat piece of writing. I don't think I'm being hypersensitive about this. You'd hardly call a keyboard a typewriter. Once more with feeling: This is a blog. What I have published here is a blog post.

Sigh.
