I insist that my LJ is *not* a blog even though it's the same concept as a blog. But Livejournal was around before "blogging" got to be this popular buzzword referring to online journaling. See, I think of "blogging" in that way, but it also implies that the blogger is writing about a specific subject to a specific audience, like music review bloggers and so on, and not the kind of thing that I and others use our LJ for. (I use it mostly for private thoughts, very brief boring entries about my life, memes, quizzes, and asking questions of my friends list. I certainly don't write nice thought-out articles on whatever subject is interesting to me at the time.
I dunno. I guess I see "blog" as this trendy thing that people do, and livejournal as the good old standard by which blogging eventually evolved and branched out.
So uh...what are your thoughts? Is the term "blog" so common now that we might as well call LJ a blogging site? Or do you draw a distinction between the two?
