Can I Get a What-What? -or- Lots of Air Quotes

I was talking to Bree earlier and I asked her what she thought a good name was for a blogger friend. I've made quite a few of you in the last few months (more than in real life almost, sadly....). Specifically, I have "friends" that I knew before my blogging days, that also have their own blogs, and I have "friends" that I am only friends with because (or despite) of blogs. I haven't met any of them in person. They are "blogger friends".

So the question is, if a "web log" is a "blog" what is a "blog friend"?

In SAT terms, if "web log" is to "blog", then "blog friend" is to "????" .

I thought of Bliend right off the bat. Lame-o. Then I talked to my bro-in-law Jordan today, and he immediately came up with BBF. Brilliant! So I have a poll to the left. Pick your favorite, or leave a new option in the comments. I'd like to hear what you think. Basically, do I have any "blonds" or "frogs"? ha. I like those. Oh, wait.

I read that someone once called their blog readers "bleaders", which I really like. I am going to adopt it, though, so don't act like you made it up! But you can use it sometimes because you write a hilarious blog.

BFF?? Your brother is obviously a fan of my blog! Because didn't I just write about bringing back the popularity of BFF?!

Although someone wrote to me and told me that BFF is SO outdated...everyone uses "Besties" now.
