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.
