Terminology

She'sJ commented in one of my June posts. She said "u asked your blogders to wish u luck..." And that's where i first heard that word, blogder.

Today i found out that it's a short form of blog+reader=blogder in a famous Singaporean Blog. And the blogger said if u heard it from somewhere else they copied her. Dunno if she's just being her or if she means it.

Whatever the case, i'll create my own word la. Actually not create. When i first saw the word Blogder i mispronounced it as blodjer. Haha, dun ask me why. U can see what i wrote in reply to her comment. Only today, did i realize my mistake, Blogder... but sounds odd la, to me... blog... der...

Not nice! I'll just stick to my mispronounced word, blodger. Hehe, but change the spelling la, cuz it doesn't make sense. What is a blod? So, it'll be Bloggere. Rhymes with here.

Really ah? I din know she created tat word(supposedly). Anywayz, I've always pronounced it as Blo-jer(silent G). Blog-Der sounds weird.
I even taught my lecturer n the WHOLE class to pronounce it my way. hahahaha.....no point in correcting myself now. haha...let them think its Blo-jer la
