America's most particular tastemaker meets the "blogs"

Posted By on 03.20.07 at 04:16 PM

Tangential to the fundamental subject of this blog, but fundamental to what it is. If the following is true, this gives me lots of respect for Anna Wintour:

"But Anna hates the word 'blog' so much, she refuses to call anything on her site a blog and has charged her staff with coming up with a new word that isn't as garish-sounding. She wants it ASAP--in time for launch." However, a source close to Wintour said, "Anna just doesn't want people to refer to stories as blogs, because they're not. It's an improper use of the word."
