The etymology of jologs was widely discussed, but the undisputed authority on this is poet Paolo Manalo, who is anything but. Metlogs is also a known portmanteau and was even made into a movie. For "rurogs", I can only cite Choy Pangilinan, the uber-p/f/gunk of Navotas and UP Diliman and Baguio. "Betlogs" was coined by me and Ed Cabagnot while drinking at Cafe Leona in Vigan.
