Word of the day

out.blog v. (out.blogg.ing, out.blogs, out.blogged) 1. to go out of one's way to acquire obscure, quirky, random facts or photos on-line in an attempt to one-up one's fellow bloggers. Petra outblogged Wanda when she posted pictures of Britney Spear's c-section on Friday. 2. to enter the real world and perform otherwise extreme or dangerous activities that one can later blog about. Tragically, Bill failed to outblog the world when he went skydiving without a parachute.

Funny how blog has moved from being a noun to a verb now too (something I've been guilty of) - "Ooooh! you should blog that!"

And can you out-blog someone on the basis of number of entries made in one day?

Any time there is an attempt -- conscious or unconscious -- to one-up a fellow blogger, outblogging has taken place.

Please do. I hope to start my own private revolution by inventing new words (er, okay, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, even for me).
