"blog-land" v. "blogosphere"

My sister recently used (coined?) the word "Blog-land" in a comment. I like that so much better than "blogosphere". "Blog-land" brings to mind a fictional and fantastical world that doesn't take itself too seriously...kind of like Candyland. Whereas, "blogosphere" connotes something real and scientific while remaining virtual...kind of like Biosphere 2.


Any opinions out there?

I agree...blog-land. Thinking of you two brainiacs having that conversation just made me crack up. And I say that with great affection. I can hear Neely right now. SARAH
