Overseas goods and fisking

A couple of things today.

Firstly, one of the writers on our magazine submitted copy that included the following sentence:

more and more goods coming into the country are coming from overseas

The UK does have a land border, where Northern Ireland meets the Republic of Ireland, but I don't think our writer was referring to that...

Secondly, if you are interested in blogging and strange new words, check out this list of blogging terms. Here are a few of my favourites (perhaps because they all sound slightly rude):
  • blawg: a blog about law
  • flog: a fake blog - ie one that is ghostwritten
  • plog: a political blog
  • fisking: a point-by-point rebuttal of a blog post or news story (named after Robert Fisk)
I'm not sure how many of the words in the list will achieve widespread usage outside the - ahem - blogosphere...
