Proof at last that bloggers havent been wasting time.
WOW London is delighted to draw your attention to the not-so-geeky BBC News, and their report that the term “blog” has been chosen as the top word of 2004 by US dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster. The word headed the list of most looked-up terms on its site during the last 12 months.
And according to blog analysis firm Technorati, the number of blogs in existence, the blogosphere, has doubled every five-and-a-half months for the last 18 months. Technorati now estimates that the number of blogs in existence has exceeded 4.8 million!
So in honour of these impressive numbers, WOW London thought wed draw your attention to a couple of noteworthy new ones personal favourites, if you will:
MC Rebbes blog caught our attention partly because he opens with the words “Shalom Muthaf***er.” Oxymoron, certainly; Rabbi, surely not? But if he is, Ill bet his congregation dont evacuate en masse (mea culpa) when he gives a sermon on the high holy days.
And on another, completely unrelated note, Im rather hopeful that the story of Persephone N. Hades, the nom de plume of New Yorks number one Internet Courtesan, will prove a worthy replacement for the now discontinued and much-missed blog by Belle De Jour, a lady of the same profession.
So there you are. WOW London loves to read about foul-mouthed rabbis and hookers.
