Blook

As you probably know the word ‘blog’ comes from the word ‘weblog’. Web is the last word of www, World Wide Web, and log means diary or journal.

It’s not a very nice sounding word, but it has become very popular in a short time, and there are a few related words which are now also used, for example: to blog (the verb), and blogger (someone who writes a blog).

And recently another new word has appeared: blook. This has a slightly better sound. It is a mix of blog and book. Some people are now writing their own books onto their blogs. It’s a nice idea.

One of my friends, who uses the blog name ‘dragonlife’ has just started his blook. The title is ‘The life of a Dragon’ and it is a fantasy story in three parts. You can easily find it in Links, which is on the right side of this blog. I wonder if the writer of a blook is called a blooker?

And I am also writing a book (not a blook). This will be made with paper and ink in the normal way. It is not a fantasy book, it is a book for children, and comes with a CD. I’ll let you know more later.
