· Pulp and Paper, Logging the Blog ·
My bracketing [properly pointed] suggests I'm still having trouble with this word. Although soon to be in print in Webster's next edition, it makes stylish loggers like me even mourn the trees, since they've done no wrong. Although I have twice deigned to use the term — once in Doonesbury Does the Blog and again in Tradition and the Individual Talent: Aristotle Does the Blog — I feel ashamed using it if only on electronic authority.
Anyway, my thanks for Webster's word that I might soon have a new, papery, offline lookup to make.
I'll leave that lookup to you, too.Permalink
Quit whining, Styles. Merriam-Webster's definition is now five years old, by your citation. You, my on-line friend, have taken 'blogging to a whole new level.
Just be sure to keep that level rising, not falling: No pulp fiction here, please.
First time here and it took me forever to get back to the original blog (I'm new to this blogging). I followed link to link and finally ended up listening to a NPR broadcast about the Pope. Wow. intensely fun surfing!
