Made Up Word Wednesday: Snog = Blog Snob

In a recent fit of self-awareness, I learned that I am a blog snob. A snog, if you will, (because blob is the other choice and that’s unflattering). My snoggishness comes out when I meet someone for the first time and the topic of blogging emerges. If said victim acquaintence wrinkles his or her nose and says, in the voice of someone who is smelling dirty feet, “No, I am not a blogger.” /hoity-toity accent, my snog radar goes on. If the person acquiesces, (and they usually do) confessing to having read a blog or blogs, then I know there’s hope, and let them off the hook.

But the person who is a blogger, who knows the names of Robert Scoble or Bob Lutz or heavens-to-Betsy, Dooce (and knows why that’s what we call Heather B. Armstrong) in casual conversation; the Charlottesville blogger who drops Waldo into chats, or Anoop; the St. Louis blogger who invokes Dana or Jeanette E. Spaghetti, for Pete’s sake, well we’re just going to be FRIENDS, that’s what.

    I saw the word “snog” and immediately thought we were going to talk about making out with people.

    Why do we always feel the need to defend our love of blogs? I find myself doing this even with my husband. Blogging is not nerdy! And if it is, then give me my pocket protector now.

    Writing from England with my British ears attached, you really want to avoid attempting to give any other meaning to the word snog.
