Accepting Blogging

I often poke fun at people who try to keep the English language from changing. Basically they complain about a new word or phrase they dislike, and I point out that change is inevitable. Even knowing this I often find myself disliking new words or phrases, and try to never use them myself and dissuade its use in others.

The word blog and its derivatives was one. I have finally accepted it as a new word in the English language, so feel free to use it around me now if I have ever given you a hard time about it.

Blog, blogger, blogging, blogged. All acceptable.

Ironically the spell checker still does not accept the word blog.

The spell checker on my mail client won't accept the word "doughnut". "Donut" is OK, though.

Feh.

How can they not accept doughnut? Fiends! I am offended as a speaker of the English language, and as a lover of doughnuts!
