blog on neologisms. on blog variants.

Schott’s Vocab is a repository of unconsidered lexicographical trifles — some serious, others frivolous, some neologized, others newly newsworthy.

To behave like Charlie Sheen – “partying, questionable decision making and public humiliation.”

The prolific production of (often not very good) songs.

Dubious description of glamorous fifty-year-olds.


D - fun. I was just looking for variations on "blog".

E.g. A spam blog, sometimes referred to by the neologism splog,[1] is a blog which the author uses to promote affiliated websites, to increase the search engine rankings of associated sites or to simply sell links/ads.


vlog 2
blending and clipping noun
a set of serially uploaded videos (usually on Youtube) that chronicle the daily events/life adventures of the vlogger. Similar to blogs, except not typed, but shot in video form.

Used only in reference to videos that are uploaded on the internet and for public viewing. If a movie were to be shot using the same style, it would not be referred to as a vlog.
Etymology : the compound ‘web’ + ‘log’ was clipped to ‘blog’ and then blended to make ‘video’ + ‘blog’ = ‘vlog’
Source : “This is my video blog. It’s my vlog!” (Youtube, 10-24-11)
