I Resemble That!

In the news:

LONDON (AFP) – “Blog”, “netiquette”, “cookie” and “wiki” have been voted among the most irritating words spawned by the Internet, according to the results of a poll published Thursday.

Topping the list of words most likely to make web users “wince, shudder or want to bang your head on the keyboard” was folksonomy, a term for a web classification system.

“Blogosphere”, the collective name for blogs or online journals, was second; “blog” itself was third; “netiquette”, or Internet etiquette, came fourth and “blook”, a book based on a blog, was fifth.

I’ve never even heard of folksonomy and I wouldn’t know one if it bit me on the ankle.

Must be a British thing.

I suppose if I were politically correct, or willing to pander to the self-appointed intelligentsia, I would be tearing my hair out in a frenzy of self-hatred at my audacity in keeping a (gasp) blog.

. . . .


And furthermore…


I am a proud member of the BLOGOSPHERE and I will shout it from the –er, top of my page!

Nyah! Nyah! Nyah! So there! Take that and stuff it up your folksonomy, you pinky-toe-hats!

    Never hear of folksonomy, either, but the only one that bugs me in the list is “netiquette.” Way too darling.

    It’s actually kind of interesting.

    Boy’s State was awesome again this year! I had a wonderful band, and the and county I reside in each year won model county!
    The weather in Sacramento was wonderful…but a bit too humid for me.

    I too,am a proud blogger. I have been doing this for about a year and grew to love every single friend of my little community i’ve built around me.

    Recently (today) I decided I wanted to start over. Regain my annonymity since I felt I have become too ‘open’ in my other blog. You know, when sometimes you start a blog, then it evolves into something totally different than you’d envisioned, but equally awesome? Anyway, I’m blabbing now.

    Here’s to us Blogging Chicks! *LOL*
