Hello, Karstuhl here!

Words are funny, sometimes. Mommy's blog, which I make entries in, is hosted by Blogger. If the first letter was not there, the name would be Logger. The word logger can stand for many things, not only data logging, which has given rise to the word blog, as in web log. Logger can also mean the same thing as lumberjack, a woodcutter, that is a person who harvest logs. The word lumberjack, however, cannot mean data logging. If you would start a competitor to Blogger with the name Blumberjack, it would not be as clear to everybody as it is with Blogger what Blumberjack would be about. This is a bit sad, because Blumberjack sounds funny.
