THE ORIGINS OF BLOG
I don't know really. But since folks are asking, I'll say what I think is correct. "Blog" is a contraction of the words "Web Log." Say that fast and you get Blog. The trick here is anyone can do this for free. You need not know any HTML programming. As Blogger.com says, "Push button publishing for the people." I like that. And as far as I'm concerned, that's the future of the web. Fancy graphics and multi-million dollar corporate commerce sites will be few and far between. The web should be for the rest of us.
