Random quote:

I had not blogged for 3 years. Many plausible excuses, but the big reason is that it is easier to dash a tweet or a short incidental social media post than to structure a complex argument, which uses mental resources that I need full time at work.

It’s interesting how the word "blog" ("to blog") has narrowed its meaning in English to somewhat lengthy and well-thought-out pieces of writing, quite different from the etymological meaning of "web log". That’s something that doesn’t seem to have happened for the Russian borrowing. Yet.
