Onomatopoeia

The onomatopoeia of the word blog makes me think of someone throwing up. So part of my dislike for the word blog has been this association with getting sick. On reading some blogs the picture is further enhanced by the idea that people are puking their observations/diatribes/autobiographies on the web. Blogging could only be helped by calling itself something else, either coining a new word or returning to words that aptly describe what the blogs are for like journal, diary, news, opinions, rating or ranting.
