Etymology for bloggers

"The term "blog" is derived from "Web log." "Blog" can also beused as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog...The term "weblog" was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December1997. The short form, "blog," was coined by Peter Merholz,who jokingly broke the word weblog into the phrase "we blog"in the sidebar of his blog "Peterme.com" in April or May of 1999.This was quickly adopted as both a noun and verb ("to blog,"meaning "to edit one's weblog or to post to one's weblog")."From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog
