No "Blog" for the "*itch"

Vogue is expanding their Web site in an effort to become more involved with the iternet. Looks like they've figured out that it's not going anywhere.

Well, Ms. "Devil Wears Prada" muse herself, Anna Wintour, is as picky with words as she is with her wardrobe.

Page Six reports that, according to one "Vogue-er", "They are expanding the Vogue Web site and getting more involved with the Internet. But Anna hates the word 'blog' so much, she refuses to call anything on her site a blog and has charged her staff with coming up with a new word that isn't as garish-sounding. She wants it ASAP - in time for launch." However, a source close to Wintour said, "Anna just doesn't want people to refer to stories as blogs, because they're not. It's an improper use of the word." A rep said, "Anna has nothing against blogs."

So kids - what shall the new word be? Vlog for Vogue blog? SUYB for stick-up-your-butt? They'll probably go with ANNA.
