Things Not to Say

  1. Confusing “blog” (an oft-updated web site) with “blog post” or “blog article” (an entry on such a site). For example, the link at the bottom of this article:

  2. Use of the term “podcasting” to describe the act of transferring an audio file to a playback device, rather than merely the act of making audio available on the web.
