The Etymology of Blog
Posted April 13, 2015 at 10:39 pm

Back when our hard drives were so small that every time we saved a JPEG, we chose the lowest quality, because "maybe it'll take up less space?"

I remember straight-up refusing to use the word "blog" without the apostrophe preceding it back then, because I still thought of the word as a shortened version of "weblog."

That's right. That's what the word "blog" is short for, you youngsters. (Not you, the person who's all "HEY!! I knew that!" You, the person who's all "Oh, huh, Danielle's a fucking grandma.")

I forgot to link this earlier, but last Friday my pal Chris Schweizer (who is a FAAABULOUS cartoonist!!) did a little recorded chit-chat with me about GWS, writing graphic novels without so much as knowing the artist, my weird high school, and the magic that is Richard Thompson. Among other things. Give it a listen if you're into that kind of thing!

It's free, infrequent, & not annoying.
