It’s because the folks at Merriam-Webster have announced that the word of the year is “blog”—seeing as it’s the most popular search term on the dictionary’s Web sites, more popular than “incumbent,” “electoral” and “partisan.” Or so says a report on CBS MarketWatch.
The same story also says that Steve Rubel (not the Studio 54 one, he left the planet long before blogs ever arrived) of blog micropersuasion.com has started a petition to get Time magazine to name bloggers as the mag’s People of the Year. Though we’re sure that honor will go to Paris Hilton, it’s a lovely thought.
Time to get back to blogging before it’s considered so 2004.
