Wikipedia, Jan. 20, 2006 (A blog is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is a shortened form of weblog or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called "blogging". Individual articles on a blog are called "blog posts," "posts" or "entries". A person who posts these entries is called a "blogger.")

Seattle times, Feb. 24, 2003, via WWW, viewed Feb. 26, 2003 ("Weblogs, for the uninitiated, are personal journals (a term I prefer to diaries) published on the Internet. They're essentially Web sites but differ by being almost all text and by being updated often, sometimes every few minutes. They tend to contain little original content beyond musings and commentaries, but what they're good at is immediacy so-called real-time information and at linking, whether it be to published articles, e-mail threads, other Weblogs or whatever. The power of blogs, as they're nicknamed, comes from the Web's one-to-many publishing capabilities."; blogging)
Barger, J. Weblog resources FAQ, via WWW, Feb. 26, 2003 (A weblog (sometimes called a blog or a newspage or a filter) is a webpage where a weblogger (sometimes called a blogger, or a pre-surfer) "logs" all the other webpages she finds interesting. The format is normally to add the newest entry at the top of the page, so that repeat visitors can catch up by simply reading down the page until they reach a link they saw on their last visit. (This causes some minor, unavoidable confusions when the logger comments on an earlier link that the visitor hasn't reached yet.))
