Etymology[edit]

Shortened form of weblog. The Oxford English Dictionary says the shortened word was coined May 23, 1999 and references the "Jargon Watch" article in an issue of the online magazine "Tasty Bits from the Technology Front" which attributes the shortening to Peter Merholz who put the following on his web site[1][2]:

For What It's Worth: I've decided to pronounce the word 'weblog' as wee'- blog. Or 'blog' for short.
