I've received a message that my article about blogging and eating  
disorders will be published in a Scandinavian journal. At the same  
time I received a message from the journal's language expert about my  
use of the term weblog. They are questioning the use and asks why I  
don't use the term blog. For some reason I have imagined that the term  
weblog is being used more often in research. Now I'm not so sure about  
it. What is your impression? Does it matter if I use the term weblog  
or blog?
