Blog Off

Two meanings for this. The first is a bit of a curse, the second a contest of sorts.

1) "Blog Off" is an insult told to the kind of people who comment on Guardian and Telegraph websites. You know, the kind who lead you to believe that literacy and education are overrated and the human race is doomed.

2) The "Blog Off" is a contest between two (or more) bloggers. It proceeds like a Qawwali with some call-and-response conversation between the parties. It resembles a (skilled) jam session rather than a duel. More concerned with meaning than posturing, each discrete contribution feeds to the whole, with learning occuring.

LOL. Both contexts could not have been put better. I hope I don't fall in either categories with this comment.
