It’s a small point, in the grand scheme of things, but when people ‘post a blog’ my day loses a little of its savour.
Ancient (well, several years old, at least) blogger credo insists: You post a post to your [web]log; you do not post a blog. You don’t upload a blog either, and there are purists who would prefer it if you didn’t blog as a verb at all. You are allowed, however, to post an update to your blog. It’s a pedantic minefield.
Having said all that, you can do all of the above so long as you don’t follow the lead of one long-ago sales colleague and tell me (repeatedly) that you’ve “sold a blog” because you think blog is the technical term for a one-off sponsored content slot.
Very annoying to post blog only to be deluged with angry tweets making it abundantly clear the tweeters haven’t read a word of said blog…

(I’ve nothing against Cathy’s tweeted sentiment, incidentally; she just happened to be the 3rd person to ‘post a blog’ in my timeline today)
