Word of the Day: Bloggbävning

April 5th, 2013

From our Swedish friends:

1.Bloggbävning, n.
Definition: Literally translating to “blogquake,” the word describes the process by which a topic explodes in the blogosphere and is then picked up by more mainstream media outlets.
Used in an English sentence: “Man, that ‘ogooglebar’ thing really caused a bloggbävning today.”

This is how I felt on the days Prop 8 and DOMA cases were argued. I think I wrote nearly 40 blog posts in that two-day span.
