I recently encountered the word "blogosphere" in a newspaper article, and I think it's worth discussing. How do we, as blogites, feel about the exploding use of the prefix? It's getting crazy. I think I might like it, but I'm not sure. I'm trying to think of what's likely to be next in order to better gauge how I might really feel about it. Some possibilities:

blogarithim: the exponentially growing groove a blogger gets into during a peak period.

blogorrhea: excessive, incoherent blogging.

blogbound: unable to move because of blogging (often as a result of blogorrhea).

bloghorn: 1. (blowing a ~) a means of alerting folks to an updated blog. 2. a blogger who won't shut up about their own blog.

inblognito: the state of concealing one's identity behind a blog.

blognizant: knowing one's blog—really knowing it.

blogtied: being physically or metaphorically tethered to a blog (aren't we all).

blog-wild: (going~) losing restraint and posting what might be regrettable.
