It is not enough to have invented the term "collablogs."
We vant more, more, more.
And, as we just saw on Sepia Mutiny, it is important to make the claim first.
So, let's start with the easy bits, and thereby secure our place in history.
Ze method is seemple, junior. Take log and add a letter before it, and make up something. Right, here we go. And yes, some of these are stuff we'd barf at if you said it, so pliss to suggest improvements. We'll share the Wikipedia space, wokay?
Alog: [Hm, Abhi of SM says it reminds him of something dirty.
Blog: [Gah. Taken.]
Clog: Dutch blogs.
Dlog Bhai-log ka blog.
Elog: Blogs about marine snake-like creatures. (pronounced "eelog")
Flog: Sado-Maso journals.
Glog: Blogs by Japanese dipsos.
Update: Honesty compels us to admit that Glog is taken. It's an abbreviation of cyborglog, which refers to a blog run by a person using wearable computing devices. It's a very interesting word, come to think of it. Two portmanteau words – Cybernetic + organism = cyborg, and web + log = blog – joined to make a third!)
Hlog: Blogs by those irritating pedants who point out to you that words like who, why and when are pronounced hwo, hwy and hwen.
Jlo-g: Jennifer Lopez fanblogs.
Klog: Blogs by breakfast cereal fanciers.
Mlog: Poison recipes only. Emlog. Hemlog. Hemlock. Gerrit? Ah never mind.
Nlog: Journals by people who don't like digital stuff. Update: For the person who emailed demanding an explanation, analogue.
Olog: [Open to claims, this one] Update: Teleute recommends "A blood group specific elitist blog."
Plog: [Stolen by Amazon. Also means "Project Log."]
Qlog: Blogs written on portable computing devices while standing in line.
Rlog: [As with O, even we couldn't think of something silly enough for this one.] Update: Another reco from Teleute – Ourlog. Humlog in its online avatar.
Slog: Sarcastic name for blog written by someone on office time using office computer and office broadband.
Tlog: [Gah. Your call.] Update: The prolific Teleute suggests this be devoted to Arnie fans.
Ulog: Blogger posts one line, and then the commenters take over, writing reams and reams of stuff they should be putting on tgheir own blogs.
Vlog: [Taken by those chaps with digital video cameras.]
Wlog: Um. Welsh blogs?
Xlog: P0rn blog
Ylog: Most of the blogs in the 'sphere. The ones about which everyone wonders "why on earth does s/he think anyone would want to read that?"
Zlog: Mi casa es su casa.
Right class. For homework, fill in the ones we left out, and tomorrow, we'll do two-letter add ons. Ooh. Fun.
