Deep among the original posts of j'accuse we find attempts at coining new words and phrases, or adapting existing ones to the blogosphere. From the ever-so-controversial "wankellectual" to "writer's blog" to "insanabile cacoethes scribendi". We have come up with a new term for all to digest (and probably criticise). At its source is the old concept of the "beachcomber" a scavenger of beaches on the lookout for precious flotsam and jetsam. Nowadays we have the scavenger of blogs. The word I am about to present was inspired by peklectrick's poem here (which also reminded me of this post of mine). So here it is:
Blogcomber: a scavenger of blogs. One who scavenges through blogs on the lookout for interesting reads. Usually adopts a tool like bloglines to facilitate his job of scouring for new, readable material.
blogcombing : the act of scavenging through blogs
There you are. And remember you read it here first after your blogcombing led you to j'accuse!
