Why is it called a Blog?

I've always wondered where that term came from, but I never actually cared enough to find out. Until today, that is. I finally wasted 5 seconds of my life to google it...

According to Wikipedia, the term "weblog" was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. 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 1999.

Title: summer of 81

So there, you learned something today. Don't say I never did anything for you. And by the way, great joke, Peter. You created a really stupid word that sounds a lot like blob. And why in the hell would you name your website peterme? Unless of course it was a porn site, then it makes sense...

No one cares what you think
