“Blocklog” Explanation

When I named my blog, I did so because I liked how “Blocklog” sounded like “Block Blog.” But recently it’s been bugging me that everybody else calls individual LEGO pieces “bricks.”

Perusing some Japanese LEGO blogs today (links in a new section on the right), I figured out that Japanese LEGO fans call LEGO pieces “blocks” (ブロック). Now it all makes sense! Growing up in Japan, all my friends called them blocks! It just never sunk in that they’re called “bricks” in English. Oops…

Thus “Blocklog.”
