BOSTON, Mass. – May 24 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Each new trend has its symbols and bloggers now have Og the Blog Trog, from Baby Bird Productions. Og is a bearded caveman, or troglodyte, who appears on such items as T-shirts, sweatshirts, mousepads, mugs, and bumper stickers, bearing his humorous words of wisdom about blogs.

For anyone not up on the ever-changing world of the Internet, a blog is a weblog, a web page with information or opinions that are written as diary-style dated entries. Blogs are a fast-growing form of communication among Internet users.
Og the Blog Trog speaks by means of comic book-style word balloons, so that each T-shirt or other item offers an amusing take on an old saying. For example, there is a T-shirt on which Og says, “I think, therefore I blog,” and another where he says, “Blog and the world blogs with you.” There’s an Og the Blog Trog mousepad which reads “Go blog wild” and a mug where Og claims that “Man does not live by blog alone, he also needs an RSS” (that’s a way to publish and disseminate a blog by using “really simple syndication”).
Og the Blog Trog’s “Blog Togs” are a fun way for any adult or teenage blogger to share their passion for blogging with other bloggers and with the world at large. It’s all done in the spirit of good clean fun and parents need not worry, as Og never uses crude expressions. The little ones haven’t been left out either. Og appears on a kid’s T-shirt and sweatshirt, and the collection also includes a “Favorite baby blogger” baby T-shirt, and a Teddy bear, who is Og’s favorite cavemate.
Where did Og the Blog Trog come from? He’s the creation of Barbara Freedman-DeVito, whose online company, Baby Bird Productions (www.babybirdproductions.com), also sells original animated children’s stories on CDs, and more. When asked why Og was invented, Barbara says “My husband Bob and I have recently begun a blog of our own, so I’ve had blogging on my mind a lot lately. Since I already create characters for stories and pictures to put on a variety of clothing and gift items for kids, babies and adults, Og the Blog Trog was a natural way of bringing blogging and art together. As blogging is a growing phenomenon, I thought that bloggers might have fun with our ‘Blog Togs’ clothing and gift items. That way, they can spot each other on the street, not just online.”
Og the Blog Trog products can be purchased online or by telephone from Baby Bird Productions at this web address: www.cafepress.com/kidscdsandstuff. As Og himself says, “If the blog fits, wear it.”
