will "blog" prevail?

I was asking myself earlier today why the word "blog" is so annoying.
Its supposed to be this new form of communication/expression, but it combines the words "blah" and "bog", neither of which are very inspiring. If it weren't for the "blah" part, I might think that the end result would be to the benefit of the bog. I mean, I don't have anything against bogs really. Aren't there even cranberry bogs? Maybe eventually getting bogged down would mean to become grounded, earthy, in a fruity kind of way. But with the "blah" angle as well, I think "blog" may be doomed. Then again, maybe someday automated censorship will become so intrenched that blogs will in fact become true to their name. --End crackpot linguistics now--
