OED Considering Making “blog” Official

For all those who hate the made-up sound of the word “blog,” it looks like the Oxford English Dictionary is considering making the word official.

(See near the bottom of the page). Quote:

“The NAEU is also working closely with the new words group in Oxford, carefully reviewing the high-profile new words that are so often of American origin, and drafting new entries for words that have come to our attention. Some of the words we have drafted in recent months include tipping point, gentleman’s C, weaponize, collateral damage, blog, skeevy, and perp walk.”
