Understanding and Reading a Blog (for Newcomers)

First of all there are two categories of blogs. One is the traditional web-log where a web surfer shares his online discoveries. And the second is the web diary where person shares his or her thoughts of the day. —John C. DvorakUnderstanding and Reading a Blog (for Newcomers) (Dvorak.org)

Interesting… Dvorak uses the masculine pronoun to describe “the traditional web-log,” but uses both masculine and feminine pronouns to describe “the web diary.” (See my handout on gender-neutral language.)
