What is a Blogger? A Person who starts a blog and post replies to another blogger's thoughts on a blog. A blogger is also a member of the blogosphere, also called a blogspace, blogland, or the Divine Bubble. (We are the bloggers of MM.) Blaudience. The members, or readership, of a blog site. (That would be us, and all those invisible members who are watching what we write.) Blog Carnival. Another term used to describe a community of bloggers. Most blog carnivals are hosted by a rotating list of current and past contributors to the carnival, and serve to generate new posts and blogs by other bloggers. These bloggers post thoughts in what ever subject area they choose to share. It does not matter if the blogs have any sense of reality in them, provide humor,(or so the blogger hopes) or if the blog stands on it's own as being describable, interesting to anyone(or anything) else, or is entertaining at some level. (OMG! Did that blogger really write that?) So now the truth is out. We are really all members of a circus... Different types of bloggers to be aware of. Blooger. A blogger who exhibits adolescent tendencies and lacks basic social graces or good manners. A combination of "blog" and "booger." This would include those who gossip or share too much personal information in the blogs, those who insist that everyone believe what they do, and those who are waiting for that space ship to finally find them.(Note: Sometimes our bloogers provide the best entertainment!) Blistless or B-listless. When a blogger becomes listless or apathetic about posting. (Now is your turn, who is missing in action that only posts on occasion?) Blogoneer. A combination of "blog" and "pioneer", meaning a person who blogs with an expert or pioneering attitude. This could also be a blogger who thinks(at least in their own mind) that they are an expert, and often the only expert, of what ever they feel the need to share. This blogger is, of course, right about everything, and everyone else is wrong.(How many of these have we seen here, some are interesting, and some are so far out there that the space ships up are still trying to avoid them.) Blogsnob. A blogger who refuses to respond to comments on their blog from bloggers outside their circle of friends. (Or maybe they are so busy with their life that they do not feel the need to blog on every blog? What? There are bloggers who do not spend all their hours(days and nights) on the blogs?? Bloghopper. A blogger who posts one blog entry after another, with related, or unrelated side-trips to any and almost all blogs with single sentence replies. On any given day they will post on almost every blog. (No names mentioned here either. But sometimes we have seen...) Bloggers we all try to avoid. Blogossip. The blogger who spends most of their time writing topics about other bloggers, or the bloggers they are dating. They post their stories on the blogs thinking that anyone really believes what they are saying, or even wants to know what they might be gossiping about. These Blogossips often spend more time behind the scenes talking than actually blogging. But they think they know everyone's story. (Of course, they are kind enough to share this with anyone who will listen, and even those who do not want to listen. Often these people will feel comfortable trying to tell everyone else what they should write on the blogs.) Troll. A commenter whose sole purpose is to attack the views expressed on a blog and incite a flame war, or in some cases another tomato war. The word trolling means literally 'to fish', as in when the troll fishes for a clash back from the blog writer and/or other bloggers. Many trolls will leave their remarks on multiple posts and continue to visit each blog, sparking spirited debate amongst the blog's regulars. Often, these trolls are really wolves hiding in sheeps clothing. Trolls' verbosity can range from eloquent to crass, although most trolls probably fall into the latter category. (Some of the Trolls of MM have also been cute, or funny. What would the blogs be like without our Trolls?) Bloll. A troll who specializes in blogs. A combination of "blog" and "troll." This can be a funny bloll, or a bloll made by a member who wishes to voice their ideas behind the persona of a made up blogger. This bloll creates many blogs, with many topics, that have nothing to do with anything that is real, or ever will be. (They are sometimes the most popular blogger.) Shart. A Stubborn, Hostile And Resentful Troll,often a bully both on the blogs and off. The most feared and disliked blogger. A blog or blogger that falls victim to such a troll is said to have been "sharted". A blogger who vandalizes their own page for sympathy is said to have sharted themselves. (Now this is a new one! Beware of the Sharts!) Symptoms that bloggers may experience. Blogorrhea . A combination of "blog" and "logorrhea", meaning excessive and/or incoherent talkativeness in the blogosphere, or cause discomfort to others bloggers simply because they go on with blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.... They are easy to see. Often posting several blogs each day... Blogstipation. 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. Boreblogging. Writing about personal matters that are barely interesting even to the writer -- preferably in a slightly bent fashion so as to make it fun to read in spite of the subject matter. (Some of my best blogs mean absolutely nothing....) Categories of blogs. GBCW. The "Good Bye Cruel World" blog is when a blogger decides that the blogosphere has become too (fill in the blank) or isn't nearly (fill in the blank) enough for him or her to continue visiting the site. General chaos ensues in the Comments as other bloggers agree, disagree, and wish the diarist good luck or good riddance. Bloggerazzi. Blogs written by blogger stalkers (combination of "blog" and "paparazzi)". These stalkers pick their favorite bloggers and post on any of their blogs. (For example, all those who follow certain men or women around on each blog) Bloggies. One of the most popular blog awards. (When is CB going to host the next MM Bloggies?) Bloglet. A small blog, usually one or two sentences long. Bleg. A blog entry consisting of a request to the other bloggers, such as for information or contributions. A combination of "blog" and "beg". Also called "Lazyweb." ( Now what is wrong with asking for information here? Oh, this must mean the ones who ask for information and do not take the advice?) Blogstorm. When a large amount of activity, information and opinion erupts around a particular subject or controversy in the blogosphere, it is sometimes called a blogstorm or blog swarm. This is often seen in the so called blog wars. (Even now I can hear tomato's being thrown in my direction.) Glog. A first-person recording of an activity, in which the person doing the recording is a participant in the activity. Gulog. A portmanteau of "gulag" and "blog". Used when a blog is so dismal and depressing, it's as if it were written in a Soviet labor camp. Liveblog. A blog post updated in real-time about an event in progress. Momosphere. Term to encompass blogs written by mothers. A combination of "mom" and "blogosphere". PENUS. Poten

Sorry Vida. This is my spider man. (If you really want him, let me know and I will send him to you. I still do prefer my Richard...) Maybe we need a blogger term for those who like duct tape and another for those who need to be duct taped? Maybe what we really need is a duct taping war. As you can see. I have brought plenty of duct tape for everyone...

Ok, I get it. A blogwhore is now also known as a blog hog. I really do like the blog hog idea better. Or is a man a blog hog and a woman a blog whore? Could someone please explain this so I can add this to the list of blogger terms? And what is the best way to show these people "the unseen way". Maybe we should simply get more duct tape and tape them all up against the virtual walls of the MM blogs....

Blue. I think you have a great idea here. Let me try this. Disclaimer = Whoops. I really thought this was the way to do this. Income 10 million = If you really believe this I still have one seat on this space ship that I can sell to you... Roadtrip = I am meeting so many men and women here that I am going to announce it on the blogs so that everyone knows who I am meeting, where and when. (As a result all the men/women of the blogs begin the next Great Tomato war.) Romantic = "Let's go to Cracker Barrel for dinner..." The photo below shows what they really mean when they say "I collect cars" = And of course those who post photos of their "cars". Maybe we should require that they show us their homes as well?

Ready, Yes. You are so right. Sometimes these old blogs can say soooo much. Who has time to post 31 entrys! Wow! That must be a new record for any newbie. He does sound like a sweetie. Maybe we could make copies of him? This is what happened to the last blogger who got carried away with posting. The MM bloggers found him and taped him to the wall...

What about taking this to a new level and including the real meaning of phrases used by bloggers. "That would be great..." = never going to happen! "What an interesting point of view..." = seek professional psychiatric help immediately! "My yacht and my sportscar..." = my row boat and broken down Metro. "I'm open to seeing other people..." = I'm married! "I don't get to blog often..." = I'm serving 5 - 10 and the warden limits our internet access. "Your hot and theirs alot we have in commen..." = I am not, as they say, smater than a 5th grader "I'm searching for my soulmate..." = I have unreasonable expectations and will hold you up to an impossible standard "Me and my ex- used to..." = I'm not over him/her Have some fun with this and add to the list!

I just love it when a very appropriate old blog gets bumped lol! Would seem we have a blogwhore taking over with 31 blogs in 2 days. I'm all for enthusiasm, but give others a chance.


What is love? Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you. :)

Vida (Creative Life) Those are some very good blog terms. I have two new blog terms to add to the list.... Type of Blogger. Blogwhore. One type of blogwhore posts blog after blog, after blog, filling up the front pages and not allowing anyone to see all the blogs from people we want to read...usually this type of blogwhore is a newbie who does not know proper blogger etiquette.(As in posting a few blogs a day (Does anyone even do this, other than a newbie?)...or one a week...) The next type of blogwhore. Is a person person who is so wrapped up in the MM blogs (and other sites) that it has become their only life. They live to blog and talk to only those who are a part of their blogging community. The outside world becomes an illusion. Type of blog. Spoof. Usually a funny blog that is written in response to another persons blog. It sounds very similar to the other persons blog, but has changes that are filled with humor and satire. It is an honor to be spoofed. I like your new Laughing Buddha name. LOL!

Pauline, I am with you on all those terms. And hearing what people with brains like Ecyla can come up with. PuRrFekly_NrML also had some that were interesting. I have never even heard of those thoughts....However, some of those blog terms do seem to clarify some of those bloggers we have seen, or may be here now. Don't you agree? If not drink one more of those fruity drinks and you will! I also feel that some of these blog terms would make great categories for the Yearly Bloggy Awards that CB hosts.... Hmmm. Maybe we need an award, or category for those who need duct tape...

Rob, LOL! I see you read to the bottom of the list. I agree with you. The best surprises are often unwrapped last....or until we get to know someone a better. The catogory of PENUS would almost certainly include you. LOL!

PuRrFekly_NrML,HMMMM. Where are the Emus? I knew a place that had them when I lived in Florida. All the horses where very afraid of them....As to where they are in the MM carnival. I think they come out during the week.... as to dates, you can find them at most local grocery stores. Usually they are by the raisins....Now, if you come over to Paulines blog you can have some grapes that have been processed. That really means we need a new blogger term for those who are indulging while blogging. Lets see.... Uninhibited bloggers? Bloggers under the influence?Blogdrunks? Blogalcholics? Help me out here....

Quoting: Originally posted by Queenofyourdreams WOW! Ecyla. Now I can see we get smarter with each birthday. I still do not understand what slashdotting means. I am so behind on current thoughts and understandings...

Queen-- /. is really not a blog term..but is used in blogs on tech sites... for instance,i suppose if one of the blogs were really popular in this venue the /. effect could knock down the site(but it is pretty unlikely,lol). most sites(like this one) are served redundantly off of multiple servers to handle the traffic at any given time, with backups also just in case of high traffic. It all about hits....sigh wiki and past knowledge arms me with way too much data for the curls to contain...but the wiki site has more blogopedia like terms for expansion and personalizing for the masses of MM.... e/a

PuRrFekly_NrML, I have a feeling that you also have much more creative terms and symptoms for bloggers. You were here when they first introduced the blogs, I believe. I imagine that must have been a wild carnival ride with everyone learning how to ride and play on the MM Carnival...

CB, Yes. It could be the time for you to host the MM Bloggie Awards once again. Everyone seemed to have fun making up new catagories. Maybe now you have new ones from this list. (I could be getting myself into trouble with this.) As to the photo. You are right. All I am wearing in that one is my crown....or so it seems.

Tinker. Yes, this is a long list of possible blogger terms. Maybe this would fit under the catagory of blogstorm? Or maybe we need yet another term, how about neverendingblog?

Bold. LOL! Yes, these could be educational. The MM online guide to the possibilites of who we are blogging with. How many are familiar with you? I know there are some that have not been mentioned. Do you have any other terms we could add to this list?

Hello Pauline. So good to see you, as usual. Not sure if these terms could sell as a book, but some of them are interesting. I am sure that you could come up with more.... Sometimes we need to not take those in blogland so seriously. As you know...You have now been here long enough to see most of these types of bloggers, or witness those who have some of these symptoms. The Carnival at MM provides us with wild rides at times.
