In the past these were used as a form of diary, where the individual responsible for the blog would bitch about their daily activities. Though often incredibly banal, this could be interesting, in a voyeuristic, and rather unwholesome manner.
The recent trend, however, is for bloggers to merely reproduce news stories that they heard on the mainstream press or other blogs, and either make a brief, badly-informed comment on the story, or link to a brief, badly-informed comment on another blog. This has led to the blogosphere increasingly resembling a gigantic, electric circle jerk.
Short for weblog.
A meandering, blatantly uninteresting online diary that gives the author the illusion that people are interested in their stupid, pathetic life. Consists of such riveting entries as "homework sucks" and "I slept until noon today."
The act of posting to a weblog.
just another way to seek attention and sympathy from other people.
Today i argued with my babypooh, he got mad a me just because justin asked me out for lunch, he ended up ignoring me and not calling me. i don't know what i've done wrong and why am i crying over it right now. it's just stupid, he's not the man that he used to be, i still remember how he treats me when we first started, it was all so nice and perfect. but now, we're like arguing over small matters almost every week. i don't think i can take this anymore, i'm just tired of this relationship.
owh look, someone actually commented on my previous entry.
joe: What have you written in it?
tim: Oh just some random drivel.
joe: Sounds like the typical blog.
tim: Yeah, but plenty of people will still read it, and that will make me feel special.
joe: That's sad.
tim: I know.
Bad Blog: "School sucks", what you had for lunch, why your depressed because your 14 year old boyfriend dumped you and its the end of the world.
