The ocean

 Because I deal with blogs a lot in my work, I have wondered today where the term «blog» actually comes from. Of course, I found the answer on the internet! It comes from term «log» referring to a log book for navigation in english. This sailing terminology is used for the internet as it is considered an ocean of information. That’s why, the term weblog started to be used. This word was then abbreviated in order to form a new word: blog. I have learnt something today! Maybe you knew this already?
