Word of the Day: Omphaloskepsis

It means navel gazing. Try using it in conversation soon. "I'm going home to take a bath and indulge in a little omphaloskepsis."

Much blogging seems like omphaloskepsis, no?

Hey, I came here looking for another post, but this will do. Yes, it is a bit like navel-gazing, isn't it?

Of course, that's okay, I kind of like my navel!

I know some ask do you have an "inny" or an "outy"...hmmm..kind of personal, eh? :)

Actually, I think the best bloggers can be distinguished from the rest by doing relatively little navel-gazing.

IMHO.
