Blag

noun; other word formation type possibly blending
Blog
 
This term is used to make fun of the word “blog.” It may be a blending of “blog” and “blah” which is used to replace words that are deemed boring or unimportant. The content of blogs is sometimes stereotyped as boring or unimportant. It may just be an attempt to make what sounds like a silly word to many people sound even sillier. As it comes from the website of a comic, XKCD, it was probably used to show that this comic does not take itself too seriously. The only people who would use this term are those who are familiar with XKCD.
Etymology : Possibly a blending of the words “blog” and “blah”
