World's best stamp collecting blog

CBS Sunday Morning contributor David Pogue has an article on the CBS News Web site that's near and dear to my heart.

It has nothing to do with stamps but with blogging (although Pogue does say that blogging is "a great way to leave your little 'stamp' on the Internet.")

According to the article, it's estimated that there are 70 new blogs are created every minute. WOW!

And just in case you didn't know it already, "A blog is like a diary or a daily opinion column that you post on the Internet for all to see...," says Pogue.

"Basically, they're Web sites published by people who have an interest or passion-and keep it updated daily with a lot of links ...," says Meg Hourihan, who helped develop that hosts a gajillion blogs on the Internet including this one.

Hourihan also helped come up with the word "blog."

"It was actually a joke," says Hourihan. "A friend of ours said, I decided I'm not gonna call it 'web log' anymore; I'm gonna pronounce it 'we--blog.' So, we changed it all to blog."
