What’s in a Name? Meta-blog

March 5, 2010

I thought I would provide a quick post explaining my intended usage of the category “meta-blog”. In my usage it means blogging about this blog, or blogging about blogging. I wanted to clarify this, because I have seen an alternate usage of the term used to refer to a style of blog post that collates and comments upon the blogs of others (on a given topic). Here is an example of the style as evinced by Scamp. As you can see, it is actually a pretty interesting style that allows one to synthesize, comment upon, develop, or distinguish your ideas from those expressed by others. While I like the demonstrated style enough that I might attempt it at some time, my intention was to be able to categorize posts that are not associated with a particular anime series — housekeeping posts.
