Ah, you were a pop-up blogger back then. BTW, love the word. Sounds great when you stick out your tongue to emphasize the "blah" sound in the middle. - purpleartichokes, 2007-04-11: 13:20:00

Yeah it's funny... All this new stuff, new technology, and even new words, and it's really the same old stuff we have been doing forever... - wordmeister, 2007-04-11: 14:15:00

The difference being is that now there's a fad for showing off all this stuff to anyone willing to pay attention. - ErWenn, 2007-04-11: 17:17:00

COMMENTS:

I wanted to use 'blogroll' because it would encapsulate the words 'blog', 'logroll' and 'bogroll' all in one. It's been used, though. Pity. - LonePaladin, 2007-04-12: 00:36:00

Minutiarize

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: min oot chee arize

Sentence: Minerva was compulsive when it came her friends and co-workers. She would minutiarize even the least significant detail of her mundane existance and fill her blog, e-mails and voicemails with the kind of boring, picky details no one wants to know. You know, how she wore her hair today, what she bought for dinner, taking her car to the carwash, filing her nails, what outfit she had picked out for tomorrow, how her arm went numb (like her readers) when she slept last night, etc... According to her blog, she led the most tedious, dull life and because of the stifingly boring nature of her discussions, few people if any bothered to read it. Good thing, because this boring cover was perfect for Minerva. If only she could write the real details of her other life. The life where she was known as Natasha, the International Terrorist wanted for questioning by Interpol and other agencies for the suspicious deaths of her last 3 boyfriends, who all happened to have very sensitive and hush-hush jobs with 3 major world powers.

Etymology: minutia (small or minor details) & diarize (enter in a diary)
