Make a chronological timeline below of your own life.

The word blog is a new word. It’s defined as “a website where entries are written in chronological order.” The word blogis just a shortened version of “web log.” A logis a journal, often kept by a captain at sea. You might guess that logcomes from the Greek word logos, but it doesn’t. Instead, it’s related to the logs you might throw on a campfire. The word logcomes from the Old Norse wordlag(meaning “fallen tree”). What’s the connection between the log you write in and the logs you get when you chop down a tree? Well, a sea captain would write the daily speed of his ship in a logbook. They called it that because, in order to see how fast a ship was moving, a sailor would drop a log off the front of the boat and count how many seconds it took for the log to reach the end of the boat. Then they’d do some crazy math to figure out how fast the ship was moving. Thus, the captain logged the speed of the logs in his log.
