One of our students included "vlog" in his new words list (we tracked
it back to 2002) and commented that because of the morphotactic
restrictions on English onsets (well, he didn't put it that way, but
that was the idea), it's always pronounced with two syllables, as
Michael speculates it would be in his entry above).   I'd predict
that _vlogger_ might be more likely to occur with a vl- onset than
_vlog_ itself.
