Loic tells the blogosphere that the French have decided what to call ‘weblog’.  Journal Officiel has given an official translation to the word weblog:

“Weblog" should be in French “Bloc Notes”

Literally, “Bloc Notes” in english translates back to “Note Pad”.

The “Journal Officiel” even thought about a short version, equivalent to “blog”, it should be “bloc” which should translate back to “pad”.

Blogs are what we call them, not what we are told to call them. If the French official organs can’t get that, then they do not understand the nature of what they are trying to define and prescribe.
