Blogger’s spell checker doesn’t know the word “blog”

November 1, 2005

That’s weird. When I used Blogger’s spell checker to check for spelling, it didn’t recognized the word “blog”. Go figureā€¦

Note that Joel said that Google spell checking is “not based on dictionaries; it’s based on word usage statistics of the entire Internet”, but I guess he only meant the search engine spell check, not the blog service.

Update (7-Jun-2009): As this video explains, things might be different for the upcoming wave.
