Copy editing question of the day

So what’s this thing you’re reading?

Spartan Daily style says it’s either a “blog” or a “Web blog.”

“Web blog” seems redundant to me, since blog is short for “weblog” or “Web log,” depending on who you ask and how pedantic a mood one’s in.

The 2004 AP Stylebook says “blog” is jargon for “Web log” and should be explained.

Merriam-Webster Online has entries for “blog” and “weblog,” but no “Web blog.”

The New York Times uses all three:  “blog,” “Web blog,” and “Weblog.” (Note the capitalization.)

The San Jose Mercury News uses both “blog” and “web log.”

Anyone have an updated AP Stylebook entry on this from the online version?
