Emerged blinking into the light?

Here I am starting a blog.  I’ve resisted the urge for quite some time now.  There’s something about the word blog that just doesn’t sit well with me.  It’s an abbreviation.  It’s derived from the term weblog – itself a new word – it’s basically is a form of online journal or diary.  The word has now passed into the lexicon where it means everything from the blog itself, to its use and the act of even putting an entry in the blog.  Thus is it possible for me to type that I must blog on my blog about blogging.   All very imprecise, dissatisfying and very new.

Which implies much about my age…
