America's most particular tastemaker meets the "blogs"

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."
