Techopedia Explains Blogorrhea

Blogorrhea was one of the original reactions to the new powers that blogs gave people. Suddenly, all of a blogger’s thoughts could be posted for the world to see. And all those eyes, whether real or imagined, put pressure on some bloggers to try to come off as more intelligent, more worldly, more philosophical – more everything. The result was blogorrhea.
