word coinage: Clogosphere

9 Mar

Clogosphere:

N. The thousands (millions?) of blogs of no consequence, “clogging” the internet.

I thought I was a genius, making this word up (see Anca’s ego; see Anca’s ego puff). Then I googled it and realized it already existed, with varying defintions (see Anca’s ego deflate). I hope that if I’m a clogger it is in the more innocuous sense, that is, of no consequence. The other sense being corporate with nefarious intentions. To my knowledge, I am not secretly an evil corporation.

But I do so enjoy the growing lexicon, which *sounds* like an evil corporation.
