“Blog” vs the English language

I’ve never been a fan of the word “blog” – I believe it sounds like something one calls a plumber to deal with. Even worse is “blog” as a verb. “I blogged it yesterday”. Did you really? Was it expensive to get cleaned up?

Here are some alternatives that I came up with:

  • Write. It’s been a pretty effective word for hundreds of years, over the course of many, many new and varied technologies.
  • Affirm
  • Announce
  • Attest
  • Aver
  • Chronicle
  • Comment
  • Communicate
  • Divulge
  • Document
  • Express
  • Inform
  • Make known
  • Narrate
  • Note
  • Notify
  • Outline
  • Pass along
  • Proclaim
  • Pronounce
  • Publish
  • Record
  • Recount
  • Relate
  • Report
  • Reveal
  • Speak of
  • State
  • Wrote up
  • Report
  • Recount

I’m sure I’m missing some good ones…
