Dutch and American-English weblogs are different, and it's not just the language. Or maybe it's exactly because of the language, or maybe Dutch webloggers have come to a subtly different consensus about what weblogging is and what it should look like. Or maybe I'm not reading the same type of weblogs in Amerenglish as in Dutch. I will have to qualify this difference and I'll need to do some more research.
Speaking of classification: are weblogs a particular type of home page?

Hya, exactly or precisely ?
Whatever the adverb: the English language 'frees' thought into easy writing.

Now you made me crack open 3 different dictionaries! The insecurity of the non-native speaker...
It's probably better to say "precisely because of the language," or at least more like what you'd say in conversation, but the according to Webster's, both would be possible here.
I like the idea of language freeing thought, but I'm not sure it's always easy writing. For me at least.
I loved your 'cracked open' of the dictionaries, but would prefer to 'crack open' a bottle or two ;-)
BTW, forget dictionaries: just read and copy. Plagiarizing is "in" these days.

Since MT-Blacklist inexplicably stopped working I had no other recourse than close comments and trackbacks to stop the spam. I've been meaning to correct this for quite a while, but life got in the way... in a good way I should add.
