Editor’s Note: Bloggerdash

As I mentioned in my maiden post, the “A new day is dawning on the way that we get news.” Not a month later, Merriam-Webster has named blog its “WORD OF THE YEAR”. Many are hailing this as a sign that the blog has finally come into its golden age. Although it must be noted, the way by which the word of the year is chosen is by the number of times people search for it. So rather than “WORD OF THE YEAR” they might have more accurately described it as “WORD THAT CAUSED THE MOST CONFUSION” or “WORD THAT MANY PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW”. It could be a possibility that many were using the online dictionary for another reason. In spelling blog, many people get lost just after the “o”.

Many of you have commented on the new site graphics. This new look was designed by our intern, whose name is Scotty, of Skippy, or something. In addition to making the coffee and vacuuming the offices, Skippy is our webmaster and writes most of our articles. Despite the fact that he in unpaid and receives no byline, I would like to remind Scrappy that he is an important member of our team.

Also, you may have noticed our association with the Quality Control Alliance. They are a group of very religious and socially minded bloggers, or at least we assume that they are. We haven’t actually looked at their site, but there is a church sign in their logo. Clicking on their sign will take you to their blog, where they enjoy discussing religion, spirituality and morality in a very mature and amicable way.
