Is bloggress a word?

In a discussion with a friend and colleague today, I asked if she would like to be a bloggress. Her response was "is that a word?" Frankly, I don't really know... if it's not, it should be.

I googled bloggress and found 107 hits. So maybe its coming along.Of course, if google is our standard of what is true and right... well, that's another issue.

Words do have meanings. Sometimes we can't find the word we want, so we're tempted to invent a new one. Same thing with sound effects. Now that I think about it, that explains a lot about Hollywood... can't find what you want, invent it.

I ran across this Mike S. Adam's article yesterday entitled The Bible Told them So. It's a great essay and illustrates how people have, through the ages, invented or discovered concepts that were already described in the Bible. I wonder how often we resort to inventing concepts, words or solutions to problems when the answer already exists... if we know where to look?
