Bleh.

Found this article earlier: Blog This

And following his request (and ignoring his use of bleh terms), I'm doing just that.

Bleh, I'm somewhat disappointed at the mentioning of blogger.com by name
with no mention of livejournal.com even though LiveJournal has 487678
users, and it's open-source code is used by numerous other sites
including:

http://www.deadjournal.com
http://www.parajournal.com
http://hive.egnu.org
http://journal.shadowriders.org
http://www.fearthedark.net

And other sites that mimic it such as...

http://www.dreamjournal.org/dj/
http://www.zx-2.net
http://www.woohu.com

There's also a rather large contingent of "web journalists" who abhor
the terms "blog", "blogger" and "blogging", and would never use them to
decribe their web journaling. Bloggers are almost by definition *only*
the people who use blogger, and not any other service or method of web
journaling such as LiveJournal, GreyMatter
(http://www.noahgrey.com/greysoft/), or even the custom and manually
updated solutions that many people use. I got the impression the
article was supposed to be about all web journalists... *shiver* at the
use of proprietary terms to describe a web culture that's much larger
than the terms used.
