These fools confuse form with function and I'm getting tired of their thickness.

And we shouldn't let ourselves convince us otherwise, either.

I've had issues with the word-- not so much because of what I do or who I am, but because the word is awkward and reminds me of the French "blaguer", which is pronounced essentially the same way as "blogger" and means, roughly, "to joke". And that's part of the problem-- people not taking bloggers seriously.

But the word is here to stay.

I don't much care for what that guy said either. I think he sounds like a smug jerk (total b.s. about journalism v. blogging), but I might have to agree with his use of "for lack of a better word."

I hear you. I initially hated the word. I even hated the word blog at first. I called them weblogs instead FOREVER. (A word I still think should never have been shortened.)

But, what you said about it staying is the most important part. At this stage in the game, it isn't going anywhere. And the disdain people have for the word in this day and age is more likely attributed to the characterization of bloggers by established media writers.

Ugh, self-hating bloggers are the worst of any self-hater.

It's like, dude, if you hate being a blogger so much, STOP WRITING A FUCKING BLOG.
