Blog Blog Blog - 03.27.00|
I don't have a blog, nor a weblog, but that doesn't keep me from reading them. In the past couple months terms have been thrown around like crazy that utilize the key word, and I've tried to compile a list of them, as well as adding a pile of my own. Also, it's a way for me to give props to all the weblogs that I try to check on a regular basis.
If you get all the references below, consider yourself very nerdy. If I forgot to credit you, or you have others to add to this "blog-centric" list, drop me a line. I'll update every night I get responses.
