BLOGGING BARMY!!

Posted in BLOGGING BARMY with tags on September 2, 2009 by Linda's Life ;D

Hold on Bloggers, I say hold on… I’m in complete turmoil about this blogging lark, one minute your happily typing away the first thing that comes into your head.. and then you go and find out ya blog may not actually be called a blog .. confused, so was I..

I shall explain:

A blog featuring discussions especially about home and family is not uncommonly called a mom blog. While not a legitimate type of blog, one used for the sole purpose of spamming is known as a Splog.
A blog comprising videos is called a vlog, one comprising links is called a linklog, a site containing a portfolio of sketches is called a sketchblog or one comprising photos is called a photoblog.
Blogs with shorter posts and mixed media types are called tumblelogs.
A rare type of blog hosted on the Gopher Protocol is known as a Phlog.
A blog written by a mobile device like a mobile phone or PDA could be called a moblog
he collective community of all blogs is known as the blogosphere.

Has the world gone stark raving mad, whats up with people, why cant they leave things alone, keep it all nice and simple, like
BLOG….
You know where you are with the word BLOG, as for phlog and Slog, sounds like a couple of cartoon characters off the tv, what category do we all fall under, am I a Vlog, phlog, tumblelog, wait I am a mum so that makes me a Mom blog, NOOO…..  I cant even find the Blogosphere on my map ..
Why oh why do we blog?  Good question Linda… enter: Operation Blogowhy.. I made that one up 😉
I feel your pain my blogging buddies, you like me will probably have sleepless nights trying to find out who you are, so I shall help you since I have been the one to inflict this terrible truth of the underworld blogging categories…
I shall begin with reasons people blog, images is the easiest way for distressed bloggers, is this then  a sketchblog ?

The Addicted Blogger, I hear a special group has now been formed called Bloggers anonymous, be very careful as I fear I am getting very close…

Ahh! the DETECTIVE BLOGGER, can never be too careful what you do or say when one of these are around, these are being taken over from what we called lawyers, they write in great detail of all your wrong doings with pictures, warning.. becoming one of these could seriously damage your health!!

The satisfaction you are writing for millions of people to enjoy your masterpiece!!!

To keep an interest in the day to day life of our children, (remember to do a blog as well as your kids doing one) that way they can get to know you to….

Of course its not just the kids who get to know you better, Beloved and I have that special bond now we have a blog each, saves all that unnecessary chatting.
sbhn35lThe key to a good blogger these days is to start them young, we never had this option whilst growing up, unfortunately we had to make friends the old fashion way, face to face…hahahaha… like they do that now! so its a memorable moment when your offspring finally blogged her first words.. a moment not to be missed on any account…
Going back now to the beginning of my blog, I still have absolutely no idea what category I fall under, so for now and for ever more I shall call my blog…
