blog

noun; blending and clipping
1. an online journal, generally not cohesive in structure 2. to add an entry or entries to a blog My mom mentioned that she loved reading blogs. She said they were "online journals." Blog is a clipping of the word 'weblog', which is a compound of 'web' and 'log'. It would seem most natural for people to use a word like 'webjournal', since people generally don't speak of writing in their 'logs' nowadays, but 'weblog' is a shorter, easier word. Eventually this became 'blog,' becoming even shorter.
 
I love reading blogs!
Etymology : blog. Clipping/blend from Old English web 'woven fabric' + Greek log 'speak'
