  1. greg hartman says:

    “Blog” is short for “web log”–not “Web blog”:

  2. shirazi says:

    Big thanks. I have linked this.

  3. Amit Agarwal says:

    Some good effort.

    When you say Blogoholic – addicted to blogging you mean addicted to reading blogs or writing blogs or both ?

  8. Jeremiah says:

    Umm… you should probably add post or entry as the individual units that make up a blog. Help educate the MySpace crowd that says: “I wrote a new blog today!” when they really mean to say that they wrote/posted/published a new entry.

    spomments = spam comments

    I’ve been trying to figure out what “the jump” is for quite a while now (as in “pictures after the jump”), but haven’t had any luck. Any insight on this term would be nice.

  13. snoopdawg says:

    An online dated “dairy”?
    I assume you meant “diary”.

  14. Alexander says:

    Great page!

    I’ve written a blog glossary – or lexicon, if you will – that parallels this one on many levels. I took some time to make the definitions reasonably definitive, to match the rest of the content on

    Always good to find another lexiblographer out here.

    I found your list of blogging tools and services particularly excellent.

  15. Hadramie says:

    It would be nice if you list the terms in alphabetical order. I’d like to add another term to the blog lingo – deadblog, which means just that – a blog which has not been updated for ages. Here’s a few more blog terms I coined:

    bloghead (from blockhead) – a meaningless blog raving and ranting about no specific topic/subject in particular

    blogsome – an awesome blog that is highly addictive and makes you want to read it everyday

  16. dandyna says:

    The list is so incomplete!!

  22. plasebo says:

    tha’s post is very intersting, But what about the guy who read only blogs, What’s is this disease called?

  23. Leonid Mamchenkov says:

    It would be nice to have this with some kind of interface for WordPress plugin (and other systems too), for automatic linking to.

  24. Blog Bloke says:

    Just recently a reader asked me to publish a list of blogging terms. Well, by coincidence Quick Online Tips has published “The Giant Blogging Terms Glossary” of blogging abbreviations, acronyms and terms. So rather than reinvent the wheel, why not just click over there and check it out yourself.

  25. Doug Karr says:

    Don’t forget ‘clog’ as slang for a Corporate Blog!

    Great Job! Alphabetizing would be fantastic.

  26. Joanna says:

    Looked for CTR here but couldn’t find it. What is it?


  27. The Moderate says:

    I got one, I’m fairly new… what does h/t mean? Example h/t to so and so for a link?
