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, or blogland. (We are the bloggers who post here.) Blaudience. The members, or readership, of a blog site. (That would be us, and all those invisible members (lurkers) 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. 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 one here is doing this,yet. Please wait until we have more bloggers.) 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. (We may not have trolls here yet...) 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. Bloggies. One of the most popular blog awards. (When should we think about our own Bloggie Awards?) 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. (I have not seen any here, yet...but have heard.) 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 makes us all have a bad day. 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". Now maybe more of our lurkers will feel more comfortable joining in the blogging experience... We need you to add to the fun and entertainment! Oh, need I forget, there is some good horse advice being handed out here as well.

Woodybooger. LOL. That is too many letters for us to type. Can you imagine what would happen to your name if we are all blogging and drinking at the same time? Welcome back to the funny farm. Did you get the present I sent to you?

4beat. As those of us know who have been blogging a little longer...We never stop learning. We are always blogafuggled... In fact, we are not always sure why we keep blogging but some how, it becomes addictive. Maybe it is easy as most people will never know who we are in our real lives? Who knows. All I know is I have learned more about myself and others since I entered into this "alien" world.
