DICTIONARY COMPANY MERRIAM WEBSTER names 'blog'
its word of the year. BBC
helpfully points out that 'the number of people reading even the most influential blogs is tiny. Statistics by web influence ranking firm HitWise reveal that the most popular political blog racks up only 0.0051% of all net visits per day.' Oddly, though, that would make the BBC only more irrelevant, since its most read story garnered only 234,000
page views yesterday - almost exactly the number of page views Instapundit
