liveblog

verb compounding
To author a series of blog posts, often short and frequent contributions, in order to document a phenomenon that is either ongoing or rapidly developing. Events where liveblogging is frequent include breaking news stories (such as the Boston Marathon bombings or the Newtown shooting), conferences, and, in recent years, reveal events for new technologies. The name of the activity refers to the fact that liveblogging often entails real-time updates to a "blog" (short for "web log" or a type of digital journal) as new information about an event or idea becomes available.
 
"In just a few short minutes, Apple's going to take the wrapping off of its updated iPad and iPad mini, along with a few other surprises. [...] We're firing up the ol' liveblog machine about an hour beforehand."
Etymology : Compounding of "live" and "blog," the latter itself being derived from "web log."
