"(Internet slang) To brag on one’s blog." Equinox 19:33, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

  • XKCD 148, 181, 124, 442, and especially 239, oh and....
    Wait, you were probably asking that seriously, weren't you? - Amgine/talk 04:25, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
I can't stand xkcd. Yes, I wondered whether this blag meets CFI or not. Equinox 20:54, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
I should probably have looked for durably archived examples, but this seemed sillier/more descriptive. - Amgine/talk 03:11, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
I didn't have too much luck with finding attestation. Lots of scannos for blog, some possible other meanings, including a UK slang term. DCDuring TALK 03:26, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps the noun form of the word is worth reviewing too: "(Internet slang) A blog featuring copious bragging." It looks like these forms of the word have become more popular since someone last tried to add it here. There is an [http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=blag urban dictionary entry], and several self-proclaimed blags: (sorry for the lack of links; I can't hyperlink without creating an account)

The entry for this UK (?) colloquial term apparently has many senses. Which ones are transitive? Which intransitive? Which both? Can the wording be made to reflect those facts? Usage examples would help. Some of the senses seem generalizable/mergeable. DCDuring TALK 14:24, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

I tend to agree, there's a lot of overlap. I would merge some of these. I think it's always transitive. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:35, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
