Blego Definition

I don't normally post this stuff, in fact, it'll probably be my first and last time! I don't even have a proper category for it on Chexed.com, so I'm posting it ony my "That Which is I have been tagged with a meme! Honestly, I don't feel like looking for the definition of "meme" other than the one I know which isn't what it's used for here in the "blogosphere," but from what I gather many bloggers consider it nothing more than a chain letter. I feel at least this meme is quite different, because it contributes to the betterment of the whole, sharing knowledge amongst many, even if on a seemingly joking subject. I got this one from my friend, Amid. It originated apparently from someone named Wogan May. This meme is actually kind of funny too when reading the definitions made by contributors.

In this meme we're supposed to define what a "blego" is, which may or my not be anything before we define it. So what the heck do people consider a “blego”? Here are what others have tried to define it so far, plus my opinion what it ought to be:

Blego (evilwoobie.com’s definition) - n. an acronym of “blog ego”, which pertains to a blogger’s sense of self in the blogosphere.

Blego (
Darkside-Dreamland.com’s definition) - n. a protologism combining blog and ego. Used to define the ego of a blog or blogger. Like personal ego, blego may be good or bad.

Blego (
benbarden.com’s definition) - n. a toy for children to build with but with a B in front.

BLEGO (
Wogan May’s definition) - abbr. Breaking Little Enterprises - Godzilla Organisations.

Blego (
Blogosis.com’s definition) - n. An Eggo waffle and a blog mixed together. I don’t know what this would look like, but maybe I can come up with a prototype.

Blego (
Amid’s defintion) - expression. “Bleh, let’s go!” If you’re being forced to go somewhere or do something, by your spouse or friends, just slur those words together and get “blego”. It is usually said after a big sigh. For example, “Do I have to? Hrmph! Blego!”

Blego (
David Rader II's definition) - n. A type of blog which makes people go "bleh." Kind of like a "splog" is a spam blog, a blego is a "bleh blog." You could just say it's a bleg, but it's more cute to say blego. - Honestly, I think "bloggers ego" is my favorite pick, I just wanted to contribute something different.

A blog meme has rules, this one has rules.


1. The person tagged must copy the word (”Blego”) and paste the definitions of the word contributed previously by the people who did the meme.
2. Link backs would be nice, but not necessary.
3. The person tagged must then add her own definition in this format ‘yourname.com’s definition’ and place your link. Being creative with the acronym is encouraged.
4. Answer the following questions.
5. Tag 5 other people to do the meme.


For #4, here are the answers to the questions:

1. Do you know what your blog is really about, and you can write a one-sentence promotional material for it in a flash? If yes, write it here.

I absolutely love writing and feel that anyone who expresses their thoughts and shares their experiences makes themselves more valuable more to the whole of society, so that's what I do, write for myself and everyone.

(everyone has their own experiences, I think it would be foolish to leave anyones opinions out if all were possible to take all of their opinions in)

2. Do you join social networks to promote your blog? If yes, do you hope to find friends in these social networks and in the process get regular readers of your blog?

Yes, I have joined many. I have found friends through their use as well. It's an excellent way to connect with other bloggers.

3. Do you or do you plan to join ranking sites that put your blog in competition with others for popularity? If yes, do you or do you plan to monitor your stats regularly?

No.

4. Do you tweak your blog often in accordance with the tips you get from blogging guides and gurus? If yes, list the bloggers you visit often to obtain these tips.

Mostly only Swollen Pickles... I think he may be a little newer to the blogging game than the top dogs are, which allows me to gain more from his experiences, especially because he expresses them honestly and most of his tips are something new bloggers can jump in on.

5. Do you think of your next post even if you have just written a new one? If yes, list your inspirations for posting, and/or some routines that you go through before posting.

Yes, I have many posts waiting to be posted. Over the course of more than 3 years of pen and pencil writing, I have boxes and boxes full of material... I'm just trying to organize it before I post it.

TAG 5 BLOGGERS TO DO THIS MEME!!!! I'm tagging 5 people I don't know to meet some people, because that's part of what posting a "meme" is all about - connecting with other bloggers.

Hey!

thanks for the comment.

That was an old old post written when I was still with friendster blogs. It's made out of impulse and the original had more syntactic errors than that one.

The two of us settled our differences already and we're working hand in hand since then. He even celebrated several masses for the organization I once headed.

I just chose to reposted it there to remind me of my mistakes too.

Thanks for the tag.

--hmmm. I guess I'm gonna repost this one in my blog too hehe

Hey thanks a bunch for doing the meme. When I did this meme, I also had to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. It was kind a fun, isn't it? I like your answers, that's for sure.

Also who would've thought to check Swollen Pickles as the source of blogging inspiration? :-)

Thanks again!
