These terms were added to the OED in the June 2013 update, but both can be antedated in/via Usenet.
"live blog", n. (OED: 25 March 2003)
About the same blog as the OED quotation, but a few days earlier.
21 March 2003 - fido7.russian.z1 (Usenet newsgroup) - Konstantin Surkov:
Title of post:
live blog from the guy in baghdad
You can see an archive of the blog here, during the Iraq invasion on 20th March 2003, but it doesn't use the term itself.
"live-blog", v. (OED: 2 Sept 2004)
22 April 2004 - BuzzMachine (blog) - Jeff Jarvis - "Liveblogging" (title):
: I’m accustomed to live-blogging conferences filled with bloggers who are doing the same.
And it occurs to me that live-blogging is a new kind of reporting. There’s no chance for analysis or even organization, but there is a chance for editing: You type what is of interest as it happens. If you want a completely masticated and digested view of an event, a news story is far better. If you want a complete and unedited view, go to CSpan. But for a quick hit of what’s notable (which is what blogs are best at anyway), liveblogging has its advantages.
To confirm the date, it was also posted to Usenet the next day:
