Hence, the title of this entry! Blang is my very own specialized term for Blog Slang!
I never knew there was a name for those days you log on to your blog and feel like you should blog about something, but you can't think of anything (which is frequent for me!). Here's the "official" definition:
- The state of being unable to think of any topic to blog about, leading to irregular, strained blog entries. A rush of interesting events can clear the block; this is sometimes known as a blenema.
- A small blog entry, usually one or two sentences long.
- A portmanteau of "blog" and "logorrhea", meaning excessive and/or incoherent talkativeness in a weblog.
The spoken form of logorrhoea (in the non-medical sense) is a kind of verbosity that uses superfluous or fancy words to disguise a useless or simple message as useful or intellectual, and is commonly known as “verbal diarrhea” or “diarrhea of the mouth.”
Ha! I love the internet.
