Lorraine refers to our blogging world as "Blogopia." I and think she's just plain wrong.
Let's examine the words myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia . These words with the 'opia' suffix relate to how we see, nearsighted, farsighted, and needs reading glasses. (Do all Presbyterians need reading glasses or is that just me?) Blogopia therefore would mean how we see our blogging world.
Let's examine the words utopia and dystopia. These two words with the 'topia' suffix describe the places where we live: well, Utopia, obviously, and its evil twin, the land of doom (characterized by an oppressive social control).
Therefore, our little blog world should be Blogtopia. Right?
I'm sure Lorraine will disagree, anyone else?
