What is Blog?


1. n. A Web log.
2. vi. To run a Web log.

1999-08-25: First spotted on the Eatonweb blog, er, Web log today, though Eatonweb's proprietor Brigitte says the coinage is due to Peter Merholz. The contraction sounds like it might have originated in a bad newspaper hyphenation, but it probably didn't.

I blog, we blog
you blog, you blog
he blogs, they blog

The verb to blog is intransitive. That is, Brigitte doesn't blog eatonweb, she simply blogs. The first Web tool that arose to aid in the endeavors of wannabe bloggers is called, of course, Blogger.

Ultimately - all blogs die.
