Etymology 1[edit]

Rebracketing of weblog. The Oxford English Dictionary says the shortened word was coined 23 May 1999 and references the "Jargon Watch" article in an issue of an online magazine[1] which attributes the shortening to Peter Merholz.[2] The form blog is now so much more common than weblog that some misspell the latter as webblog, as if from web + blog.

Noun[edit]

blog (plural blogs)

  1. (Internet) A website that allows users to reflect, share opinions, and discuss various topics in the form of an online journal, sometimes letting readers comment on their posts. Most blogs are written in a slightly informal tone (personal journals, news, businesses, etc.)
    • 2002, Biz Stone, chapter 1, in Blogging: Genius Strategies for Instant Web Content, Indianapolis: New Riders Pub., →ISBN, page 4:
      So you see, the blog has been around since the beginning of the web; that is how basic the concept is. Today's blogs, and the activity of blogging, have taken on more meaning, but the concept of it all is still very simple and rooted in the beginning and intentions of the web itself.
    • 2012, Zadie Smith, NW, London: Penguin Books, published 2013, →ISBN, page 150:
      Have you tried these, darling? They’re tempura zucchini flowers. Japanese-Italian fusion! My own invention. Shall I photograph it? We can put it on our blog.
  2. (Internet) An individual post to a blog.
    This blog was originally posted on my personal site but is reproduced on the forums for greater visibility.

    • 1960, Rich Brown, Paul Stanbery, The Golden Halls of Mirth[5], published 2006-07-19:
      The earliest form we know about composed before Rhysling was blinded, at some drinking bout, and the verses concerned what he would do at the SoLaCon I—if he could find enough blog, a mimeo, and a few willing femmefans.
    • 1994 June 7, David E Romm, “Re: To Ghost or Not To Ghost...”, in rec.arts.sf.fandom[6] (Usenet), message-ID <71443.1447-070694144409@dialup-3-152.gw.umn.edu>:
      The closest we came to that was not serving alcohol in the consuite one year. That was a significant success for it's main purpose. We actually came up with a definition of a fan, albeit a partial one phrased in the negative: Anyone who comes to Minicon just because there's free beer in the consuite is not a fan. That year there was more alcohol and more kinds* of alcohol than at any Minicon before or since; all the real fans who liked to drink brought their own and shared. The policy mainly discouraged the jerks who liked to hang out at the consuite and hit on the women. We did that for one year and happily went back to serving beer and blog.
    • 1995 September 4, Lindsay Crawford, “Re: Intersection”, in rec.arts.sf.fandom[7] (Usenet), message-ID <9509042250393785@emerald.com>:
      I can't speak for Faye as ed of FHAPA, but it would be really swell of someone could send us a set of Intersection daily newszines, plus any con flyers or other fannish papers that were there to had for the picking up: fannish things, you know, not including media, gaming, filking or costuming, fine fun but not my cup of blog, thank you.
