My blog is not radio, your radio is not a blog
As though I didn't have enough reasons to be annoyed by radio already, this morning I was listening to the Bobby Bones Show on Austin station 96.7 Kiss FM when the DJs started doing their morning blogs, blabbering on about what they did this weekend.
As though people (particularly radio listeners) weren't confused enough already, Kiss FM has to go confusing them even more. Let's look at the etomolgy of the word blog: it originated as a combination of the words "web" and "log", with the important word here being "web". Now Bobby Bones, your radio show is no more a blog than my blog is a radio show, not even if you play sounds of keyboard typing in the background while you speak.
It upsets me when companies, trying to stay current, adopt technology (or in this case technological terms) that they don't understand. Stop using our airwaves to confuse people!
