What is Blog?
The term blog formally entered America's vernacular when it was inaugurated into the printed pages of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary in 2005. In fact, the word was at the top of Merriam-Webster's list of "words of the year" in 2004, a testament to its ever-increasing popularity. But what exactly is a blog?
The term blog is actually a blending of the words web and log. Over time the two words combined to become weblog, and eventually simply blog. A blog is defined in the dictionary as "a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer."
In simplest terms, a blog is bit like an online diary. But instead of recording thoughts in a locked book, the writer posts his or her musings on the World Wide Web, with the possibility - and hope - that readers across the globe will take a look at what they have to say.

Blog History.
Modern day blogging has roots in the 1990s when people began creating and updating personal web pages. During his time at Swarthmore College, Justin Hall began a web-based diary entitled "Justin's Links from the Underground." The site began as a general guide to the web but evolved into a collection of personal thoughts and ideas. It resulted in the New York Times referred to Hall as "the founding father of personal blogging" in an article published in December 2004.
Editor of blog precursor Robot Wisdom, Jorn Barger coined the term weblog in December 1997. The shortened form blog was first used by Peter Merholz in 1999 when he broke the phrase into the words we and blog on his website.
Blog usage began to spread rapidly and is now considered a mainstream portion of modern day media.
