Out of the mouths of (design) babes
I was thinking the other day of my new life as a design blogger, and the language I've adapted since starting this venture in Nov. 2011. Would I ever have used these in a sentence pre-blogger days? Probably not.
Words like "swoonworthy, droolworthy, hubs, hubster, vacay, chandy, sneakity peek, DIY'er, serial DIY'er, "chic"everything, zhushing, amaze balls" have eeked out of my mouth, although, not for long. A serial DIY'er sounds pretty scary. I certainly don't want to sound cliche,or try to be someone I'm not. Bethany says things like 'totes'(totally) and 'lurve' (love) which are so funny to me; it really makes me feel old. It is fun to play along though. But there is a new web "slanguage" going around blogland.
In googling the topic there are some good articles about it that speak of words like:
Blogorrhea - unusually high output of articles
Blogathy - I do not want to post today and I do not care about it
Blogstipation - writer’s block for bloggers. Cant think of what to blog about?
Vlogging - Also called video blogging.
Moblogging - Also called moblogs. A blog posted and maintained via mobile phone.
I just want to have fun and enjoy everyone's stories, pictures and musings on the topic of decorating, art and design and meet some like minded people. It's like this except not in person:
I'm going to keep adding to this list, but tell me what are some amusing words you've heard as bloggers? Let's keep this going!
