I still have trouble with the use of the world blogging - Why can’t we just say writing? Sure, I agree that blogs have changed many things about how we communicate and what we expect from people who write online, but at the end of the day when someone puts words into sentences, and sentences into paragraphs, the skill is writing. I don’t care where those paragraphs end up, or what technologies are used - the biggest challenge is to write well.

I’ve never liked the pigeonholing associated with the word “blog”. Until relatively recently, it was a negative term used to dismiss online writing as low-quality, unprofessional, and worthless. I kept denying that my site was a blog for a very long time because I didn’t want to be so easily dismissed.
