I have a blog? Is that a good thing.

I am always entertained about the features of the internet containing fancy geeky words to accompany them.
Not saying that is a bad thing, as they probably do need some sort of word. Most make wonderful sense.. some are a bit foreign until you know what it means for example in the case of an acronym. Others are simply based upon a product name, like google or Tweet for a Twitter entry. Even others are just names somebody decided to use similar to Java. You never know..
Blog is one such thing.. Simply means Web log, but was the extra few letters and a space so less important that we chop it off? Nah.. I think it was just a catchy phrase that caught on. Not a real huge deal to me.. it just sounds funny and I felt like making fun. Log with a B.
Seems to me when online chat and forums took off, things went nuts with shortcuts. Today there are even more new phrases and emoticons that have come about due to the texting frenzy on cell phones as well. Because someone first decided that giving folks chat option all while still only having 12 keys on a phone was a great thing! ..especially if they could sell you a plan all while driving you insane attempting to communicate with others. Funny thing is, those folks COULD just call using the phone.. Actually I am thinking that was what the cell phone companies were hoping, but they were covered either way. ...all while laughing their way to the bank.
So there you go... STYG. I made that up.. Poetic Justice huh? Oh.. I mean PJ? Nah.. I would rather have a PB&J
So having seen I have the option of having a blog on this forum, I figured I HAD to make an entry. ..but is that a good thing? LOL I have no idea either. Maybe folks will figure that out by the time I decide to make another entry. TTFK BRB UNT AFK etc etc..
