Blog is short for web log, and it’s basically an online journal or discussion written by an individual or a group. A blog can be a noun or a verb. This site is a blog. This post is a blog. You’re reading a blog written by a blogger about blogs and blogging right now. I personally don’t like the term. I prefer to think of myself as a writer, not a blogger. I want my posts to be considered articles, not blogs. I feel that blog demeans what I have to say. It cheapens it. It’s less likely to be taken seriously. You can quote articles to win arguments, but you can’t refer to blogs to win a bet. I don’t like the term, but I have to accept it because that’s what I do and that’s what it is. I’ll admit that I’m a blogger because I blog on my blog if you admit that I’m a writer because I have to write the blog that I blog on my blog.
