"(Internet slang) To brag on one’s blog." Equinox 19:33, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

  • XKCD 148, 181, 124, 442, and especially 239, oh and....
    Wait, you were probably asking that seriously, weren't you? - Amgine/talk 04:25, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
I can't stand xkcd. Yes, I wondered whether this blag meets CFI or not. Equinox 20:54, 7 September 2009 (UTC)
I should probably have looked for durably archived examples, but this seemed sillier/more descriptive. - Amgine/talk 03:11, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
I didn't have too much luck with finding attestation. Lots of scannos for blog, some possible other meanings, including a UK slang term. DCDuring TALK 03:26, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps the noun form of the word is worth reviewing too: "(Internet slang) A blog featuring copious bragging." It looks like these forms of the word have become more popular since someone last tried to add it here. There is an [ urban dictionary entry], and several self-proclaimed blags: (sorry for the lack of links; I can't hyperlink without creating an account)

  • [ BlagHag's blog] (which has been moved [ here])
  • [ BlaggBlogg]
  • [ Krisjet's Blag]
  • [ Nursultan's Pirate Blag]
  • [ Blig Blag Blog]

These are just a few of the search results I've found. Any objections? -- 14:56, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
