blog

blog
a diary or set of personal comments kept on the Internet, is a word rather like cello. The full form is weblog, but this, like violoncello, is the preserve of formal documents and manuals (and bibliographical citations in this book). For interest, in the OEC there are six times as many instances of blog in its various forms as there are of weblog. Blog has already given rise to an agent noun blogger, a verb to blog, and a verbal noun blogging. Not surprisingly, blogger outnumbers the seldom heard weblogger by 30 to 1. Remember to double the g!
