Design blogs ("or Web journals")

I thought it had happened: that the NY Times had broken its own precedent and used the term "blog" without apology or explanation.

On a recent day, the cyberdesign world was buzzing. Bloggers at had discovered the mystery manufacturer of a hot paint color called Fresh Melon Green. Over at, bamboo coffins were the talk of the moment. A post at Design Sponge, meanwhile, praised ceramic bowls that double as wall sconces.

But no. "Blogs" are promptly identified as "Web journals" in the next graf.
