What is data blending?

This term appears frequently in the method-related threads.

Is blending a specific method in data-mining and statistical learning? I cannot get a relevant result from google.

It seems blending is mixing up outcomes from many models and resulting in a better result. Is there any resource that helps me knowing more about it?

Some papers to help you further understand what blending is. I think you can also google for ensemble selection/learning, and stacking as well.

Your general understanding of ‘mixing up outcomes from many models and resulting in a better result’ is correct though.
