Today saw the first emergence at NRB of a strange entity.

John Nampion was kind enough to transcribe a post spoken to him by Twog, the mascot of our NewsReal Twog sub-blog (pictured above.)

Where did Twog come from? Well, the term originated from an idea I had for shorter posts here at NewsReal Blog. What happens when one combines a Tweet and a Blog? You get a Twog. Our Twog sub-blog is focused on short, to-the-point posts, particularly on breaking news. And Twog was brought to life in art by my wife April.

The Twog creature above serves as the sub-blog’s mascot, much as Feminist Hawk does for The Feminist Hawks’ Nest. Unlike Feminist Hawk, though, Twog is not the section’s editor. He’s an errand boy at Associate Editor Liz Blaine’s beck and call. And he’s only allowed to post when he doesn’t misbehave too much. Maybe if he’s on good behavior we’ll consider promoting him.
