Noun: blog (plural blogs). Personal or corporate website in which the author writes, as their knowledge on a given subject evolves, their observations, research, opinions, insights, etc., so as to make them public, often receiving reactions and comments.
A blog is short for weblog. Log means "diary" such as a flight log or captain's log. A Weblog is a journal, whether personal or professional, that is maintained on the Internet by one or more regular contributors. According to Hugh Hewitt's book Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation That's Changing Your World, the first blog was established around 1999 or 2000. By the end of 2006 there were some 12 million active blogs. (According to Pubsub who has since closed)
