Bloggers have a lingo of their own, much of which is now in the vernacular, as blogging has become a pop culture phenomenon.
There's a list of blogging terms on Wikipedia. It covers the more common phrases and words. This is a good handy resource to have for those among us who are beginning to study the medium. When in Rome, you better speak Roman, uh, I mean Italian! Yeah, that's it. [via]Those who follow Blawg Review are already familiar with these terms:
Blawg - a blog focusing on commentary about the law, generally written by a law professor, law student, or lawyer. A portmanteau of "blog" and "law."Every culture develops ways to communicate nuances, sometimes with strange words and gestures. And, speaking of the Italian chin-flick, blog carnivals, blawgs, and law bloggers who have a special way with words, be sure to check out Blawg Review #52, presented by our favorite goombah, David Giacalone.
Blog Carnival - a blog article that contains links to other articles covering a specific topic. Most blog carnivals are hosted by a rotating list of frequent contributors to the carnival, and serve to both generate new posts by contributors and highlight new bloggers posting matter in that subject area.
