What is a clog?

Clog is a sister (using modern English practice of referring things in feminine gender) of blog, the content of which is predominantly crib. The name is derived from crib-log to its short form clog. Web defines crib in many ways, none of which refers to the crib I mean here. I have pasted the definitions I got after typing "define:crib" in google at the end of this blog for the terminally bored and jobless reader who may have the audacity to go through it. However, after further search I could find one definition in wikipedia that satisfied the definition I was looking for, here it goes:

Cribbing is commonly used to signify whining or grumbling about something.

So well, thats about it, thats what I am going to write in my blogs. An endless (at least thats what I intend as of now) chain of rants about what I (and many others) go through on a daily basis. Lets see how long I (and may be you as well) can keep up with it.
