Ummm at office right now, so can't open that site, but are you sure about the "We Blog Cartoons" part?

Wouldn't "Weblog Cartoons" make more sense?

Hey, that's what the site owner calls it.

And, there's some historical cred to that. In this article I wrote a while I ago I quoted Rebecca Blood thusly:

Peter Merholz announced in early 1999 that he was going to pronounce it ‘wee-blog’ and inevitably this was shortened to ‘blog’ with the weblog editor referred to as a ‘blogger.’

Hi there. Slightly belated thanks for posting the cartoon and glad you enjoyed it.

About the name. I called the site 'We Blog Cartoons' rather than 'Weblog Cartoons' because it sounded more dynamic. An action rather than a description.

That sounds like pretentious nonsense doesn't it.
