Sorry Urban Dictionary, but you’re cray. You may be all urban (and maybe that’s your problem) but you have incorrectly defined Blog Fog as:
the pollution and obfuscation of news and debate to the point of public confusion or apathy via over-reliance on blogs, “tweets” and other “secondary” news sources.
Just as the hardcore rappers know what cray is, we bloggers know what blog fog is. And it is not a pollution or obfuscation of news and debate.
Blog Fog is: the state of disconnection from reality caused by secondary and tertiary thoughts, resulting in unfocused vision and the inability to interact with other humans in an attempt to produce a decent blog.
See, most people go get a cup of coffee at (insert evil corporation) and, while standing in line, casually eye the pastry case and/or low fat coffee cake. But a blogger, with the ever present blog fog disrupting normal synapses, is wondering how coffee cake can be low fat, and how the guy in the suit next in line can smell like petula oil, and why that girl’s boots look like Captain Hook’s except for the butt-ugly heels. This is the person who asks “Huh?” when the counter girl says, “Two-eighty five”.
Blogger brains are in a constant fog of topics sparked by random events, recipes, stupid politicians and interaction with non-bloggers (known as normals) that obfuscate their thinking and slow their response time to the most rudimentary questions.
Words are not always defined by those who formally define them, but by the reality of a combination of application and repetition. Let’s take back this definition as those in the midst of the fog, who know that the effort it takes to function in the normal world while enveloped in this thick gray stuff is difficult and at least worthy of the correct label.
We live it People, so we should own it.
PS-I’m working on something funny, I swear.
