Blog...the word

is blog an abbreviation for something? if not, who made up the word? do people get paid for making up words? if so, what is the job title and how do i apply? how many words are thought of and turned down? is there a word committee for approving words and what criteria do they have to follow? i mean blog? what kind of criteria is that?! :)

Blog is an abbreviation of "web log." I doubt anyone got paid to get lazy and shorten the expression!

many great words come from lazy mouths, or little kids who can't say things properly yet!
